Helping Parents Stay in Control of Their Goals While Caring for a Toddler


Taking care of your toddler is the most important thing.

Stay-at-home parents fill their day with activities to maintain the household, entertain and educate their toddlers, and accomplish personal goals for themselves. It can be difficult for parents to plan agendas for the day when their child's behavior and health is so unpredictable. Using the latest in sensing technology, the CareWear system anticipates behavioral and emotional changes in a toddler and helps the parent to understand how to adjust their
plans for the day and week.
