As a mom of two boys under the age of five, I use technology to keep up with them and maintain a somewhat balanced life. It is the main component that keeps me level-headed, does as I say and is always there to set me straight when my mind begins to wander.
I use technology to communicate, shop, and most importantly answer any impromptu questions my kindergartner throws at me.
For parents, technology has become our lifeline to the outside world. Technology is a simple tool that improves our quality of life.
We love it because it just works.
