Parents and grandparents looking for a fun and clever way to track, reward, and improve their children’s behavior now have an app for that: Portable Parenting.
This is a very useful app for disciplining, rewarding and teaching children anywhere your phone can go, which both teaches them accountability and gives parents more opportunities to turn punishment into a positive learning experience.
The Portable Parenting app employs several unique tools, including Take Out Time Out, a system that both records when and why your child was in Time Out as well as providing voice and text commands. It also provides a Star Stash rewards system that allows a child to earn stars towards desirable rewards, like fun activities or a certain toy. Similarly, the app offers a Parenting Bank to better educate children at a young age to budget and manage their allowance. The app also generates reports to help parents measure a child’s improvement over time.
Portable Parenting is a simple yet powerful tool that also helps parents, grandparents, and caretakers improve their parenting using a hip, “techie” solution that their kids can relate to. You can download it from the iPhone App Store or Android Marketplace.
