If you are a parent, you know about FOMO, or the Fear OF Missing Out. And if you are like most parents, you know that sinking feeling that settles around your heart every time you come home and hear about some special moment that you wish you could have witnessed yourself.
One of the most difficult things about being a parent is that in order to be a great parent, you have to do things other than parenting! Work and many other things take us away from our kids so that we can take care them to the best of our ability. As much as we don’t like it, we can often miss out on some of the little things that make up their day.
We have all thought to ourselves that there must be a better way—and there really is. You can banish FOMO with an unlikely tool—your home security system.
No More Missing Out
You can learn a lot about how things went that day just by how the kids walk through the door and fling their backpacks on the floor. When the baby sitter tells you what a great day the kids had at school or some special event you do not have to rely on second hand information. Use your home security system and app to tap in to the security cameras and see their faces as they walk through the door.
Yes, your home security system can help with (your) separation anxiety. The kids may be fine walking away for the day and not give us much thought, but we hate saying good bye. We hate not knowing what they are doing, or whether or not they are okay. Tapping into your home security cameras for a peek every now helps close in the distance.
Ever get the feeling that when the kids are telling you what happened that day, that they should be telling you what else happened that day? Yeah. We know. Now your strategic parenting can take on new power. No need to miss the action. Now. You. Know.
Improve Your Productivity
It is difficult to accomplish all that we need to do in a day when our mind is constantly going back to thoughts of the children. Worry takes a lot of energy that could be spent getting things done. One quick check through the security cameras can tell you all you need to know. Now you can get all of your work done faster so you can go home sooner.
It Can Help You Manage Homework Time
Should the kids be doing homework when they get home from school so that you can have even more time enjoying time together when you get home? Unless you tap into your home security cameras, you have no way of really knowing until you get home.
Worried About Chaos?
We know. Take your eyes off the kids for one moment and nearly anything could happen. There is no need to worry any more though. If your young people know that you can check in at any moment and see for yourself, they are far less likely to test your boundaries.
