Top 10 Most Useful Parenting Apps
For 21st century parents, there really is an app for almost anything. Need to know where your child is? Just press a button! Didn’t have time to shop for dinner? Get a meal kit delivered in minutes! It makes you wonder how your mom and dad got things done in the Dark Ages, right?
Here are our top picks for the ten best apps that will help your household run smoother, from managing screen time to reclaiming some of your mental sanity:
