I might be late to the party on this one, but my wife and I recently downloaded an app that I think every parent should have. It's FREE so why not give it a try!

The app is called Life 360 and, among other things, it allows you to keep track of your family. We just have the free version, which basically serves as a GPS tracker for anyone in our family that has a phone. It's kinda creepy at first though...when my wife texts me outta nowhere and says something like "What are you doing at Schnucks?" or "I see you on Red Bank Road!" I don't know if I want her to know where I am ALL the time. Yikes!

The app allows you to do some other really neat stuff once you upgrade to the paid version, including:

  •  Crash Detection & Emergency Response
  •  Driving Analysis & Weekly Report
  •  24/7 Driver Care Support

Our daughter isn't old enough to drive yet, but I guarantee we'll get the upgrade when she is.
