Lost in a teen’s excitement of packing up and heading to university or college is a mother’s nervousness and sense of isolation. For the first time in a mother’s life their child may not be within the same city, or even country, for a long period of time. How can moms manage this helpless and overwhelming feeling. How can worried mothers ensure their children stay safe at school? Or simply put, how can mothers sleep better at night?
A child’s promise to stay in touch and always check-in does little to actually calm a mother. While the inability to protect and provide security may leave a mother feeling helpless and vulnerable. There are countless articles and how-to parenting books that help mothers cope and let-go when teens first leave the nest, but there a few tangible solutions that actually empower parents to stay connected with their children.
The Guardly app can bring that sense of safety and security back to mothers and allow them to stay connected to their child while they are away at university. Guardly provides a location-based mobile platform that allows students to alert, connect, and then collaborate with their parents and even 911 in emergency situations. Students can activate the app with a single tap and communicate with their personal safety network from anywhere in the world. Guardly allows users and their personal safety network to communicate via voice, sms, web, and email, while displaying real-time locations of the victim and each emergency responder.
With the vast majority of teens going to college or university already being active mobile phone users, mothers can simply download the Guardly app onto their child’s smartphone within seconds. The app acts as a safety net to improve student and campus safety. For example, the Guardly app can be activated in such minor cases as a student walking home late at night from the library, or more serious cases such as a student having an asthma or panic attack in an isolated dorm room.
Guardly’s mission it to improve the emergency response process and help save lives. To learn more about how Guardly can help keep families safe and connected, visit the product overview page. The Guardly app will be available in April 2011 through the Apple App Store, and on Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone platforms within the next few months. Stay safe!
