Recently my husband and I have been talking about the future potential of him getting a promotion at work. This particular promotion would take us out of state and it has him extremely upset. While I grew up all over the place and never truly connected with extended family, he grew up very differently. The kids seeing his mom is very important and he doesn’t want to move away and have the kids lose that connection and bond.
Technology will never take away from the real life experiences but Panasonic has recently announced a simple way for grandparents to maintain and build ever more meaningful relationships with their grandchildren, even when they’re far apart. HomeTeam™ is an online service that connects loved ones across generations and distance. Grandparents, parents, and grandkids can now enjoy the same activities they do in-person, even when they are far apart. Read stories and play games together anytime.
How come grandparents read stories better than mommy and daddy? I’m not sure but I love that even just miles apart we can hop on the app and my husband’s mom can read a story to the kids before bed. activities on HomeTeam are fun, engaging, and educational and with so many books and games to play there are hours and hours that can be spent on HomeTeam.
I feel confident that we can move out of state or a different city and my kids can still have a great connection with their grandparents because of HomeTeam. It will still never replace the real true connection but it’s a great alternative until a in person visit can be had. For now I’m just glad there are only about 7 miles between us instead of hundreds.
New users can sample the entire HomeTeam experience, including unlimited access to content and all features free of charge for 30 days. After that, a premium subscription for continued access to unlimited content is available by month ($7.99/mo) and by year ($79.99/yr). A small price to pay for the smiles and joy it brings to your kids and family members.
While we use HomeTeam on our Apple devices it can also be accessed through your PC or Mac and is available for download on Google Play.
