QUEEN'S ROAD: An online platform, mycity4kids.com that helps parents to search for activities and content related to kids, has launched a mobile application, the ‘mycity4kids Family Organizer’. The first of its kind family app in India, it offers utilitarian features like a Family Calendar, To-Do Lists, Upcoming Events, Kids Resources and Parenting Blogs that parents can access on the go, to share their parenting responsibilities actively.
The app enables #ParentingFromTheSamePage as it allows parents to have a common view of their kids’ activities, manage day-to-day tasks and get reminders. The Family Organiser app offers information about local kids’ events and resources and parenting blogs by experts and mothers.
Co-Founder and MD, Vishal Gupta, commented, “Modern parenting isn’t easy and the demands it places on parents and more specifically, mums, can make it quite stressful. We’d like to become the indispensable mobile platform for today’s multi-tasking Mum by giving her access to everything she needs, in one place. The app helps her organize the kids schedule, discover interesting things to do in the city for and with them, learn from the shared experiences of other parents and involve her spouse in daily parenting. This is our way of ensuring that the job of parenting never overtakes the joy of parenting, by enabling #ParentingFromTheSamePage.”
Easy-to-use and colour-coded for each member, the Family Calendar helps parents record all the kids’ activities along with own schedules in one place. It helps them add appointments which both of them can see, assign responsibilities and set reminders for each event. Parents also get a family agenda for the upcoming week through email and can share a specific event in their network.
The To-Do list is an easy way to create separate checklists like school and after-school activity related lists, class birthdays, fee reminders, vaccinations and so on. Tasks can be assigned to a specific person and reminders can be set accordingly.
Parents can discover current events and workshops in the city that are relevant to their kids’ age and the locality they live in, through the option of Upcoming Events. These can added to the Family Calendar with a single click. The app also provides access to more than 65,000 resource providers in 9 cities - the largest such resource guide in the country for kids-related activities.
And lastly, the Parenting Blogs section offers the most contemporary and comprehensive parenting content from more than 500 Mums and Experts, to draw learnings from or to validate their own parenting style.
The Android app is available on the Google App store for download.
