From us to you

Dear read­ers, As I sit down to write this, my iPhone keeps buzzing with reminders to drink wa­ter and take my vi­ta­mins—it’s re­ally quite the as­sis­tant when it comes to help­ing me keep track of the lit­tle things that are easy to for­get. This got me won­der­ing, has tech­nol­ogy re­ally be­come an in­de­spen­si­ble part of our lives? While tech­nol­ogy can some­times ren­der us lazy, it’s not with­out its pos­i­tives. Let’s take those reminders, for ex­am­ple. In an age where we per­haps need more hours in a day, sim­ple reminders from a smart­phone can def­i­nitely be a bless­ing. You feed in the in­for­ma­tion, set an alarm and voila! But what about the more press­ing mat­ters? Well, there’s in­deed an app for that. From apps that pro­vide med­i­cal as­sis­tance, to those that al­low you to make fund trans­fers or even book a sim­ple movie ticket, tech­nol­ogy has cer­tainly made life a whole lot sim­pler. And the av­enue of preg­nancy, par­ent­ing and child­care hasn’t been left out ei­ther. This ‘Tech Spe­cial’, we bring you our picks of the must-haves apt for the tech­no­log­i­cally-savvy gen­er­a­tion. Whether it’s apps to track your fer­til­ity (Pg68), gad­gets that ev­ery par­ent must con­sider in­vest­ing in (Pg32), to apps that en­gage and ed­u­cate your chil­dren (Pg80), we’ve got it all! Apart from the tech talk, we do have a wealth of in­for­ma­tion that you, as par­ents, must know about. So, why not gear up and get with the pro­gramme? And if you’re still un­sure, you could al­ways google it... Just kid­ding! Till next time! Cheers!
