Try a Little Social Media Magic to Keep Up With Your Kids While Out & About or On Vacation - Here’s the Trick! by Laura Greenwald
Headed to a theme park or on vacation with your kids soon? Whether you need to gather the troops for lunch or check in to make sure they're OK, here's an easy way to do it!
Before you leave home, type your kid's social media handles in the contacts on your phone. That way, if they get "lost" and don't respond to a call or text right away, you can ping them with a direct message on Facebook or Twitter. Just make sure you're all following each other so you can direct message them.
Chances are they'll be looking at their phone anyway, so you might as well use it to your advantage!
