Hi everyone! I wanted to suggest my favorite iPhone apps that I use with my kids that make my life a little easier! The first one is called AutoSender and is great for scheduling messages that then automatically will send to your kid! So if you are out of town, you can schedule reminders like when to take their medicine, feed the dog, or anything else they have to do! Even when I will just be home later in the evening I will make sure to schedule a message to send to ALL of them(you can create a group with as much people as you want) reminding them to do their chores and homework before I get home! The second one is called Splitwise and I actually use it a little different then it is meant to be used. It is meant to let room mates split up expenses equally and figure out who owes who what, but personally I use it for anytime my kids make a purchase with their own money for something I would normally cover. For example my oldest son had to give his teachers $10 of his own money for a field trip last week, so he simply imputed his amount spent into the app, selected he paid for it, and that I now owe him 10! It works great for keeping track of things like that, so now I can put $10 right into his bank account. The last one is called Sleep Cycle and I actually convinced my kids to use this app as well. It tracks how long/well you are sleeping throughout the night, which is great for a parent that is trying to catch up on their missed sleep. But also great for encouraging kids to get better sleep routines, for example if they are noticing after only getting 5-6 hours of sleep they are feeling blah and tired all day, but after getting 8 hours of sleep they feel great, you will notice them working more and more on how much sleep they get!

I don't really believe there is a "right" answer to this. It is hard to say one way or the other. As it was not your sons fault that the concert was cancelled, It seems slightly harsh to punish them for that. That being said, I understand where your coming from, there should still be some sort of punishment.

Hi Don, I am actually currently using an app that lets you do the same type of idea. The AutoSender lets you schedule messages that will automatically be sent to the recipient at any set time in the future. This means you could schedule a message for 60 years from today, and they would still receive it. From what I understand they are also working on a new feature to include images in those messages. And the messages are stored on their server, so no mater what happens to your phone in that time, the message will still send. I also use this for more immediate things, such as if I am going to be gone for certains times I will schedule a message to remind them of things such as taking their medicines, feeding the dog, etc. You could check it out and see if it is anything like the app you are thinking of!
