  • Whether you’re an experienced mom or you just had your first baby, we all know that you want to give the best for your child. It should not be so difficult to be a hands-on mom, especially that most of us have access in the internet! Here are some tips to follow how you can be a better Mom using Social Media.

  • 1. Make youtube your kitchen ally

    Dr. Mark Hyman, Chairman of the Institute for Functional medicine suggests that moms like you should prefer cooking food for your kids instead of ordering from fast food. The research showed that children who have regular meals with their parents do better in every way, from better grades, to healthier relationships, to staying out of trouble. They are 42 percent less likely to drink, 50 percent less likely to smoke and 66 percent less like to smoke marijuana. Regular family dinners protect girls from bulimia, anorexia, and diet pills. Family dinners also reduce the incidence of childhood obesity. In a study on household routines and obesity in U.S. preschool-aged children, it was shown that kids as young as four have a lower risk of obesity if they eat regular family dinners, have enough sleep, and don't watch TV on weekdays.

    But kids can be picky eaters sometimes, especially when it comes to vegetables. It’s a good thing that we have YouTube not just to view our favorite songs, but we can also re-invent our recipe and discover new dishes for our family. You can search dishes to serve for breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner! It is really fulfilling that your kids has something to look forward for today’s menu, and makes them more excited to eat what you’re going to serve them.

  • 2. Keep track of their progress in school using digital learning sites

He’s probably scared that you might scold him for his poor performance. iSkool.me helps you address the problem before it’s too late. There are some schools that are using this digital learning site to provide easier learning experience. If the school uses this kind of App, you can also download it to your iPad, or Mac Book, so you can monitor your child’s progress in school.

  • 3. Save time and energy through shopping online

    We all hate traffic because it consumes much more of the time we can spend with our family.

Being a housewife does not end in cleaning the house, running errands, taking care of your kids and cooking for your family. Start with preparing small servings for your kids so they will have a delightful snack when they have arrived from school, and have some friends try your recipe. If they liked it, well maybe it has potential on getting noticed online. If you are a novice in baking, you can try no bake ice-cream cakes that are easy to make and has cheaper ingredients.
