5 Apps to Give Mom a Well-Deserved Break

Posted by ImOn Communications on May 10, 2019 1:51:19 PM



Being a mom has never been a more demanding job.

In the 1960s, the average mom spent about 10 hours a week on childcare, according to a study from Pew Research. But even though women now spend on average 25 hours a week working outside the home, we still devote more of our time to child care than our parents did.

The same study also found that nearly 8 in 10 adults think women face a lot of pressure to be an involved parent these days. Hop on Instagram and it’s easy to see why.

Trying to remember a time before the World Wide Web, personal computers, iPads, and smart phones is comparable to trying to imagine a time before there were cars and highways.  How did we ever get anything done?  The advantages of the information age allow humankind to access and share massive amounts of information, perform commerce, and interact across diverse populaces on a grander and more rapid way than ever imagined when that first Apple PC appeared the late 1970s.  However, as with all great and amazing human achievements and technology advances, new dangers and threats emerge that we must defend against.
