When my son's brand new IPhone 6s appeared with a cracked screen, it not only broke (sorry for the pun) his heart but also presented us with the problem of getting it repaired. After all, it's the most modern, advanced version of the iPhone and also his favorite belonging in the world, so we needed to remedy the situation at our soonest..without a delay or wait. He wasn't sure exactly how the phone had broken, after owning it for a mere six hours, but we carefully stressed the need to be patient and understand that these things happen to everyone.

Tech-Savvy Family Traveling

On our recent trip abroad, we somehow managed to take more gadgets than usual.  But all for the best as each device came in handy.  Our trips have certainly gotten easier over the years.  Of course, the kids are older, but if we had some of these tools when they were younger, I am sure that our trips would have been easier.  Here are some of the gadgets that I highly recommend you consider taking on your next family trip: 1. The iGo charger is absolutely amazing.  You can charge your phone virtually anywhere, either plugged into the wall or on the Read More
