Mom’s Non-Custodial Parent Picks ‘Parental Control’ App, Parents Network app for iPad as Best of 2016
Parents are often left to fend for themselves when it comes to how they choose their child’s diapers.
But a new app from the Berkeley parents network is proving to be a good choice for parents, one that allows parents to control the care of their children’s diapers without worrying about the potential for physical abuse.
The app, called “Parental Controls,” allows parents, who do not have custody of their child, to schedule diaper changes to be carried out without the need to hire an independent service provider.
In a recent video on the Berkeley Parents Network website, a woman named Melissa explained that her daughter was diagnosed with pneumonia after she was left unattended for three hours, while her husband was away.
“She couldn’t even go to the bathroom because she was so stressed out,” Melissa said.
“I just couldn’t take it anymore.”
Melissa explained to the parents in the video that she decided to use the app after watching an episode of the ABC show “Parents” about an American family that tried to make a living on their childrens diapers.
The parents said that the app was not the best solution for their daughter, but it made the decision easier.
“The app allows us to make the changes that are necessary without having to hire a professional to do it,” Melissa explained.
“That’s what it’s supposed to do.”
The app also has a feature called “parental notification,” which allows parents who don’t have the right to have their child diaper changed to be notified when the diaper changes are made.
“Parenting is hard, and I’m just trying to be more understanding of how to do this in a way that is respectful,” Melissa added.
“When you are in the middle of this, you don’t want to have someone do it for you.”
A video on “Parential Controls” page shows Melissa and her daughter in diapers while the app is running.
The parent has a voice command to say, “Call mommy,” and then they can say, and then change diapers, as shown on the video.
When the app starts, a voice prompts for a “Parentual Controls” message, which says, “Your child is ready.”
Melissa and the child, named “Nanette,” are shown changing the diaper.
A baby is also shown being placed in the baby carrier and a diaper changing bag.
Melissa said that while she would like to see more options for parents who have custody, she thinks that the Berkeley community has reached an understanding that it should be able to make its own choices about how to manage the care for their child.
“You know, we’ve reached a point where we have all been able to have our kids with us, but we don’t always have that freedom with some of these other kids,” Melissa stated.
“There are some kids who aren’t going to have that choice.
And I think that’s really what we’re going to be looking at as we start to take care of our children.”
