Interactive planner for caregivers

All parents know how difficult it is to keep track of everything going on with their kids. From meals, to medications, to the daily schedule, children’s lives seem every bit as complicated as adults’ – maybe more. When a child has special needs, the complexity is raised to another level.

You probably feel like you could hire a personal assistant to manage your kid’s affairs.

Since that isn’t financially feasible for most parents, we’ve put together a virtual assistant to help keep you and your kids organized. And our interactive planner is absolutely free for you to use.

Explore the toolbox below and discover user-friendly ways to schedule your child’s day, record your child’s meals, track games and activities, log medications, and share emergency contact information.

We hope the interactive planner makes your hectic life just a little bit easier.

Oral Care for Children by Humairah Shah, DMD

Children don’t come with a manual. Your first child is always a learning experience. I wanted to give a first time mother a list of few things that will help take care of her child’s teeth.
