When parents finally have the quiet, quality time to spend with their children it is nearly always with an eye toward the single most distracting advice ever created - the smartphone. That's where PresentParent - an app that shuts down parents’ smartphones during kid time. PresentParent allows parents to set parameters on their own smartphone usage during time when they should be present - figuratively and literally - with their children. When the PresentParent time is up and parents reengage with their smartphone, they are rewarded and acknowledged for their time spent present. It’s like tracking time spent walking on FitBit, but tracking time spent present with kids.
