In this fast-paced world where cultural trends shift swiftly with time, it can be difficult for parents to relate with their children across their technological generation gap. Luke Igel recommends an app that invites parents into their children’s worlds. “I recommend Snapchat,” he says. “Most kids are using it. It lets you send super quick and concise pictures and messages to your friends, and a new feature even updates you with your kids’ locations in real time.” Stop right there. That new element alone is enough to download Snapchat. “It’s a quick and noninvasive way to keep a bit more tabs on them,” Igel says.
