If we go few years down the lane and recall your childhood we would find a lot of memories of that golden era- a fight with best friend, visit to nani’s house, outdoor games such as hide-n-seek, marbles, etc. Are not these memories the best ones we have? And that’s why we all want to relive our childhoods! Those were the days when there were few technical gadgets but more love and social life; we used to spend more time with friends and family than with phone and TV. We used to hug and hold hands with our best friends than seeing them on just ‘face time’. Physical contact brings closeness and strengthens the bond, a tight-hug from a friend cannot lessen the pain but it gives courage to bear the pain. But when we look at our children, do we think they have similar memories to hold on to? Will they want to relive their childhood when they grow old? The answers to all these questions do not lie in our smart phones but we can take benefit from them by installing a parenting app- Neo Junior.
To help us use the advancement in our benefit, Jubics online has come with a new app- Parenting platform “Neo Junior”. This app has everything you need to understand your child’s need from food to school, and from friends to fashion. It keeps parents abreast with the latest developments in kids’ world and helps them in becoming an aide to their needs. They app can help us in knowing who our kids’ best friends are or even what is their favorite Disney character. With the advancement in technology especially in smart phones we have become distant from our loved ones especially kids. The moment we come home we get engrossed in the phone. Even the dinner conversations have reduced to formal talks that are limited to “How was your day?” “hmmmm” “good” “ok” . We all know that these habits are not doing any good to our kids. We are staying in the same house but hearts and minds are miles apart. Every free second that we get we just type in the phone password and scan through our FB timeline or look for a new ‘What’s app’ message.
Well, that does not mean that technology is a villain in our lives. As they say every coin has two sides, so let’s focus on the second side of this coin. Let’s use the modern technology to our benefit i.e. come close to our kids, know them, play with them and help them become good human beings. While logging in to the app you can select a particular age group (of kids) as an interest. Once you register it shows the articles depending upon the interest you selected at the time of registration. Even if you are pregnant or seeking pre-natal information you can make good use of this App. This app contains a plethora of features such as:
1. Asking questions and getting them answered by a community of similar interest people.
2. Super parent rewards.
3. My article section: If you think you have something to share with the society you can write a related article and send it to the Neo Junior team.
4. Events: The team conducts events from time to time related to upbringing, new kids trends, etc.
5. Contests: They run contests for parents and kids, and thus encourage them to become ideal parents.
Overall, this App contains information that you will need to pace up with kids’ lives. I think we can make good use of it in order to stay connected with our kids’ lives – because after all this is the only way we can re-live our childhood but this time in a technologically advanced world.
