There is nothing scarier than the moment your child wonders off and you cannot find them. As a mother myself, I am always worried when we go somewhere where there are a lot of people, that my child will go missing and I’ll never find them. It is one of my greatest fears.
Unfortunately, I had a situation where that almost occurred. The ending was a happy one but before that it was a nightmare. My husband and I took our four children to the zoo on an extremely busy day. There were people literally everywhere. Our youngest son, who is three years old, decided to unbuckle himself from the umbrella stroller when I was looking the other way. He must have immediately darted off in the direction of one of the exhibits. When I turned around, he wasn’t there in his stroller. I just about had a heart attack. I looked around screaming his name but there were so many people. My husband who had our other children at the tiger exhibit was frantically searching too. We were near a booth where zoo employees were selling merchandise and I had them call security. They sent out messages through the radios to search for my missing son. After about 15 minutes of searching (which actually felt like eternity), he was located. Because the zoo was so busy and my son is so small, we couldn’t see him. He had ventured back to a turtle exhibit and was sitting down watching them. I never even knew he had gotten out of his stroller and wondered away. It happened so fast. I had nothing to tell me what was even happening. No alarms, no sirens, no nothing! I would have never forgiven myself if something really bad had happened. If only there was something that could have prevented the whole fiasco. But, there is. There is a device called MyKid Pod where it sounds an alert the moment your child is out of range. You’re thinking what? Seriously? Yes, it’s a fact and I want to tell you about it.
MyKid Pod is a Bluetooth child tracker that connects with your smartphone. It is a simply designed slap style bracelet that fits very comfortably on your child’s wrist. With an app you install on your smartphone, you can control the range in which your child can go. If and when your child wonders outside of that range, an alarm will sound on your smartphone. The moment it sounds, you can immediately locate your child. Now, lets say your child is in range but your child gets scared. The MyKid Pod has a built in panic button that they can push. Once the panic button is activated, your smartphone will sound the panic alarm and you know to get to your child quickly. This product is amazing and works so well. My son actually likes wearing it and it stays on his wrist well. I want to take a moment and highlight the amazing benefits of MyKid Pod.
