(BPT) - It’s the time of year when family schedules change and their daily routines reset. From coordinating calendars to handling additional demands such as homework and extracurricular activities, it can be a challenging, if not daunting, time for even the most organized family.
The good news is advancements in technology can help organize busy families' schedules, streamline their routines and simplify their days - making sure everyone is in the right place at the right time. Today’s technology tools can also help eliminate the stress and worry of whether or not someone remembered to lock the door or adjust the temperature while the house is vacant for the day. Here are a few tips to help families get organized this season.
1. Connecting via social media: Family members can stay connected throughout the day by using private groups on social media platforms, allowing everyone in the family to post quick messages, send photos or ask questions. According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, more than 60 percent of teens ages 13 to 17 have signed up for a profile on one social networking site, and many report they spend more than two hours a day using social media. With teenagers’ high social activities, parents can often receive responses and information from their children in a more timely and effective manner.
