I’m all about family security. I’ve always been the wife and mother who wants to know where everyone is, where they’re going, when they’re leaving, and when I can expect to see them again. But, in today’s world, it’s imperative to always know where my family is.
For years, keeping track of the family when they were out and about meant phone calls to stay in touch, which can be annoying. Now I use the Life360 app to keep track of my family members, so I always know where they are.
Family Security in a New Age
This is a time of constant connectivity, and I can use that to my advantage to keep track of my family members. It’s also an age of increasingly insane stories on the news, so I am always on top of where my kids and my husband are, and I make sure they’re able to keep track of me, as well.
Recently, we took a ski trip. My kids love snowboarding, but I’m on a break from snowboarding- as I recover from two hip replacements. With Life360, I could see where the kids were on the mountain, document how fast they are traveling and get some great shots of them snowboarding. If you have been on a lift, you know once you get up there, there is no telling which run you are headed down. Tracking them with Life 360, I know precisely which run they are on and when to pop out for some good photos.
I can also keep track of my kids when they’re in someone else’s car. Believe it or not, I have actually called a parent to ask her to slow down with my child in the car. I know, I know. I can see you rolling your eyes through the monitor, but that’s me. I’m on top of this stuff. My kids can be embarrassed if they’re alive, you know?
Keeping Track of Family Anywhere
I feel so much better knowing that should anything happen to any family member, I’ll always know and always be able to find them and dispatch emergency assistance if need be. Frankly, I need that, and we can all use it these days!
If you’re not using Life360 – for this and its many other features – I suggest you look at it. I use this great app that helps me manage all of our moving pieces daily, which is why I’ve been using it for so long.
