Practical Family Safety App

My handsome mansom and his princess lady
The world has changed. My generation often likes to reference the safer years where we spent our younger days. Now when I think about what my parents allowed me to do on my own, I cannot imagine allowing my children to do the same.

Fortunately, we live in an electronic age and there are options to help you protect your sweet babies. There is one app in particular that I have recently become aware of that is a simple, straightforward way to help keep you safe and give you peace of mind.

dun dun dun dun..... It's called React Mobile.
Yeah, this is totally my great-
something-grandpa Philo Dibble

It does two major things.

1- In Case of Emergencies
All you have to do is program a set of phone numbers and e-mail addresses of people you trust, and should you ever find yourself in trouble, a discreet push of a button will send out a panic text/e-mail to those you had selected, along with your GPS location! Then, it will prompt you to dial 911. Not in the US? This app will automatically prompt you to dial the 911 equivalent for whatever country you are in.

2- Everyday Peace of Mind
My dad is a runner. He likes to go in the early, black hours of the morning, and it makes my mom nervous. This app has a 'Follow Me' feature where someone can track you and see exactly where you are. Like if you are sending your kids to school- you set it up on 'Follow Me' and then can see EXACTLY where your kids are via GPS, so you'll know if they are in trouble, whether it is something serious or just them skipping school.

It can be a scary world out there, and much as we'd sometimes like, we can't protect ourselves or our children from everything. We can, however, be prepared and ready, should anything out of the ordinary occur.

So. There you have it. React Mobile. And you can see just why I'm a fan.
