Summer is such a great time to spend time together as a family! There are so many options for new experiences and memories as we loosen up boundaries with our children. With today’s technology more parents are looking for a little helping hand to relieve some parental anxiety during the freedom of summer. Here are a few practical scenarios the MamaBear App or similar technology can help with worry-free summer travel.
The Beach and Boardwalk
Large beaches, particularly the beaches at vacation destinations usually come complete with boardwalks or other tourist oriented attractions. Not only do we want time to relax, our kids want some freedom to safely explore the surrounding entertainment. Location apps like MamaBear can help you set boundaries and get alerted should your children leave a designated area. Talk to your kids about safety and helpful check in and location features available through apps on their phone.
The Amusement Park
Amusement park trips are one of the most common summer travel destination for large families. The variety that amusement parks can offer families means there is usually something for everyone. Something for everyone can also mean splitting up to fit it all in. MamaBear location features help parents watch a child move in near real time. This means a child can enjoy several rides, games and attractions without having to drag the whole family along. In sprawling amusement parks, MamaBear can even help with something as simple as sending the kids to the nearest restroom and back, but giving the kids reassurance they can tap the “come get me” button if they get turned around.
One of the most memorable events from any summer travel experience is going to see a major sporting event. While many families are lucky enough to live in a city with a pro-team, other families take a day or weekend trip to experience their favorite team first hand. A day at the ball field or stadium is a great time, but sometimes boisterous crowds, tailgaters and huge crushes of people can get a bit nerve-racking for families. MamaBear can help parents find kids and help kids find parents in all of these instances.
MamaBear is one of the best options available to help parents, and children, enjoy the experiences of a summer vacation to the fullest. MamaBear can support the freedom to develop family memories as well individual experiences for memories that will last a lifetime.
It’s Summertime!When most of us were kids there was no holding us back from summer fun and extra time for discovery and exploration. Even in a world that’s way more complex than ours was, every year summer still means more free time for millions of kids.
Here are our top summer safety tips for and ways MamaBear can help you be in the know and keep the family safe.
1. Water Safety
Teaching your kids how to swim is number one. Then all of the water safety precautions will follow – wear sunscreen, no wrestling in the water, know where the lifeguards or parents are, look out for each other.
2. Camping Safety
Parent chaperones are always best. Nonetheless being prepared with a first aid kit, bug spray and sunscreen are good ideas. Location devices can also be very useful when camping. Installing MamaBear on a camper’s iPhone or Android Smartphone can give kids quick access to parents in case of emergencies while offering parents and chaperones up to date location information about the kids.
3. Safe Road Trips
The freedom of summer usually means some form of travel. This can mean single day trips to local destinations for some, or longer road trips for others. MamaBear’s sound advice is to make sure your kids have a smartphone, a car charger for it and a regular charger. Smartphones are one of the best tools to help kids stay safe on the road – but NO texting and driving. Kids can use a smartphone for directions, travel tips, taking pictures and certainly checking in with mom. MamaBear can let parents monitor trip progress and driving speed, as well as offer children an easy to use option to contact parents if there is an emergency on the road.
These favorite summer activities will give our kids such wonderful experiences. We encourage loosening up the boundaries with the help of technology to ease our minds! MamaBear can help parents with summer safety for kids and provide a variety of ways to keep tabs on our children’s whereabouts and activities.

This can help both day-to-day parenting as well as during family outings and vacations. Parents and kids can both save themselves time and trouble by using the MamaBear app to communicate their location. Parents can use the app to check on the child’s location at the tap of the app and can selectively share their own location with their children when they choose. Children can check in with parents and notify them of a variety of needs and situations with a simple three button interface.
Families of all sizes can benefit this spring and summer from the MamaBear family locator features and alerts for iPhone. When parents can readily locate their children across a large area, it opens up a wealth of options on vacations and family trips. Parents can allow children a lot more freedom on playgrounds and parks, as well as on larger trips like beach vacations and amusement park visits. The GPS features and location alerts from MamaBear allow parents to watch their children’s location from a distance, and receive an alert when they have entered or left a specified location. This makes letting the kids have a little adventure that’s worry-free for parents.
Children don’t need to call to check in when they have the MamaBear app. Parents simply receive alerts for programed destinations. Or children can choose to check in with parents with a single button tap, saving time and alerting parents when they have arrived somewhere new. Children can also use the one touch app to call for a ride, or alert parents of an emergency situation. This means mom and dad aren’t calling or texting often because they’re worried. We encourage parent to open up their children’s location boundaries with this new knowledge in the palm of their hands.
The MamaBear app is easy to install onto iPhones, iPads and other iOS powered devices running iOS 4.3 or later. The children’s version of the app works best on an iPhone 4 or better, which offers advanced GPS functionality that MamaBear uses for optimal results.

The MamaBear app is available in the App Store and can be used to track and communicate multiple children via email and push based alerts. This makes MamaBear an excellent solution for a wide range of summer activities for families of all sizes.
