Struggles of Parents in keeping a check on their children
Parents have often been facing challenges in keeping up with their children’s academic and co-curricular updates due to their busy schedules, ending up getting worried about their children. Often due to this they might end up missing crucial details, deadlines resulting in defaults causing inconvenience to them as well as their children.
Worries of whether their children reached school safely, or is their fees paid in time often disturb the parents who are already preoccupied with other things. They are often caught up with the pressure to avoid defaults in fees payments. Another thing which is crucial for parents is to attend all the Parent Teacher Meetings (PTMs) from time to time. Even a small slip off from their mind could be problematic for them.

Everyday checking the school diaries if their have got some homeworks, assignments of remarks could be very tiring at times. And to keep updated with all the mentioned tasks require the parents to be hands-on all the times. This might be very hectic at times for the parents especially when they are already caught up with busy schedules.

Technology helping Parents in keeping updated with children’s activities

To make this task a little easier technology has come to help by sending them constant updates to keep them in sync with the process. Be it the reminders for payment of fees, or an update for homework and assignment, technology has helped parents a lot by serving the information on their tips, saving a lot of time and energy. Eventually the worries of parents to cope up with their children’s school activities have all vanished as now they could easily track them with the help of technology.
A small SMS notifying that the child has reached the school safely takes away all the worries from the parents. Reminders about fees payments, upcoming Events, PTMs have helped parents manage them along with their schedules and has decreased the possibility of default to a major extent.
Now parents need not to go through their children’s diaries everyday looking for the homework and assignments as they already receive it on their mobile phones.
This has not just made it easier for the parents to keep updates but has also eased the process of communicating with parents for the School. They no more have to rely on the written communication via school diaries or face-to-face meetings, rather just an SMS could work for the same. Moreover, with SMS they tend to get a quick response in comparison to the former modes of communication.
