How much do the kids today know about technology and babysitting kids?

Well, it turns out they know a lot more than we thought they did!
        First off, they know they need to know more than turning on the iPad or the TV to keep kids entertained. They even know the important safety rules. The “What do I do if…..?” and you fill in the blank.
      Unknown-2 Why is this so important, you ask?

•   They need to know mom and dad’s rules for behavior, snacks (if any!!!) and bedtime.

•   They know the first order of the babysitting business is to keep the kids safe at all time, from exit doors to emergency phone numbers.

•   They need to know the guidelines for being a top-notch, well-liked and capable babysitter.

We found three helpful critics of our new Babysitting, Inc mobile app. We gave a copy of this innovative new babysitter learning app to three local kids 14, 12 and 9 and let them play with it. We asked them what they learn from it. Their jury is in.

Here’s what Josh, age 10, had to say:  “I opened the app and was surprised on how and organized it was! I started exploring and now I want to start my own babysitting program. I was so reeled in by this useful information. I would highly recommend this app to others.”

What did they like best? Sam and Ellen said “Being able to move about the app and select the topics of greater interest….the blend of readable text, interesting pictures and helpful videos….well organized & colorful….useful information.”

What other suggestions did they all have? “You need a place so we can keep our own notes….choose our own font and colors….a place to do an internet search for more info….a place where other kids can submit their reviews and ask question and share tips….some cooler choices for business cards and design our own business posters.” Makes sense to us, too!

Yes, we ask other experts, like teachers, to review our apps. But the kids are our major customers too and it just makes sense to listen to them. Wouldn’t you agree?

More reviews to come….and soon…from Sam, Josh, Ellen and even more kids. From RE@L!
