Help for Parents with iPhone and iPod Touch in search of consequences for broken rules

| February 8, 2011 | 0 Comments

Are you a firm parent or a wimpy parent? Stephen I. Pleatman has the answer: He thinks, that we are wimpy parents and that we are creating a generation of kids that are lazy,rude, entitled and who show a lack of respect for rules. So he created an app, which is a quick pocket guide for parents. When your kids break the rules, they need immediate logical consequences.

So you can choose, what your child or kid did – and the app will give you the appropiate consequences. Let your iPhone be the bad guy. But be strikt and enforce the consequence. The program gives you two “games”, with which you can react to lying, curfew breaking, stealing, not checking in, drugs and alcohol, sexting (more and more an issue, was today morning again on tv), driving issues, poor grades and more.

Not the kind of game, kids prefer - but maybe a helpful solution...

You might think, it’s poor to use an app for education? Give the app a try. It’s free momentarily -and thats the chance to see, if it works as good, as the author says.

Our Rating:

The approach might be different, but the problem keeps the same. But with the announcement of future usage of the app there might be an effect.
