disappointing than your kids making their way up a driveway only to discover no one is going to answer the door. Now you can avoid this disappointment and stay away from uninviting homes by using the “Next Door Treat Map” app. This is a hyper-local social network that works on both iOS and Android devices. It lets you know what neighbors are participating, and which ones are not.
Keep up with your kids with GPS tracking. There are more than a few apps that will let you track your kids via their phones or other devices. One is Find My Friends, which is made by Apple, but there are more than a few to choose from. With these apps, you will know exactly where your kids are at all times, which will help keep them safe and give you peace of mind.
A spare phone. Even if you prefer that your child not have a smartphone, you should still give them an emergency cellphone while trick-or-treating. This can give them helpful tools such as an SOS flash, panic siren, and flashlight just in case they get lost or are in trouble. You can also program your number into the phone so they can call you if there is an emergency.
Keeping your little ones safe this Halloween is actually easier than you may think when you use the tech and tools highlighted here.
