Today’s post is my son playing a game.
Okay! I hear you. It is not just about a young boy playing a random game on an iPad. It is about family togetherness and bonding experiences that many families need these days.
As you some of you know, my family moves quite often. We move every 2-3 years from one country to another away from each of our families. It gets hard sometimes. Well, actually, it is always hard and it takes so much time and effort to get used to a new place. Moving often means we don’t get to see our extended family members that often, either.
As a result I always look for ways to be connected with family, especially for my children. Of course you can have a conversation with family members over then phone, but all too often it is a shallow conversation between the generations. Online social networks are great, but they tend to be more of one directional sharing of information. It would be nice if there was something that can build bridges across distances and generations, and allow family members to be involved in an activity that both can enjoy together at the same time regardless of distance.
I have come to learn that there is a new app from Panasonic called HomeTeam™.
HomeTeam™ is an online service that connects loved ones across generations and distance. This app will work great for families who are far away from each other, or for those families who can’t always spend the time together due to a busy schedule away from home. It gives grandkids and grandparents something to talk about and actually do together. No more of those awkward, shallow phone conversations among the generations! They can share activities and build lasting memories.
On the app, I found that there are quite a number of great multi-player games that are fun and educational. There are also great selections of books that kids of different ages can choose from. My daughter is a book lover and she is eager to read a biography of Temple Grandin, an autistic female professor of animal science. She would love to read the book together with her grandma.
My son loves playing games with his dad. But he works hard and often away from home. When he was not with him, my son played a card game with him using HomeTeam. They chatted as they played, sharing silly jokes, chuckling and laughing… It was so nice to see each other on the video mode. They can make silly faces to make fun of.
Creating meaningful family connections and memories are non-replaceable, and HomeTeam™ can provide a bridge to build the family togetherness. If you need the more information about this app, go to www.MyHomeTeam.com. The app is available for download in the App Store and Google Play on 3/24.
