Parenting issues solved
By Allyza Quirante and Jessica Pag-iwayan
Parenting has evolved from generation to generation, each with different concerns influenced by the family’s lifestyle. Companies are continuously adapting to the millenial family’s needs. Problems such as increased problems of heavy traffic, and health and security risks, we give you three new solutions to these everyday family issues.
Problem: Running errands around the metro
Solution: Lifestyle amenities near your dream home
When we fantasize about our dream home, we often consider the conveniences it comes with, especially with the traffic we traverse in the city just to grab a few things we need. Mothers back then didn’t have to go through this struggle, especially in the ‘70s when mothers had gardens for their homegrown produce or in the ‘80s and ‘90s when roads weren’t as packed as they are today.
Problem: Prepping for our children’s future
Solution: DNA-designed health program
In the early ‘70s and ‘80s, most people perceived insurance as a luxury, often associated with terminal illness and choosing your casket. Parents today have come to see the value in investing in different kinds of insurances, especially for us to secure the future of our children.
Now, there are even holistic insurance packages available, like Pru Life UK’s myDNA Pro Bundle, which combines an investment-linked life insurance plan with a healthcare program. The healthcare program is based on our DNA sample, which is then analyzed by scientists and nutritionists to inform us of allergens and health risks we are sensitive to, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. As parents, we can trust that the data we receive from experts is accurate, giving us peace of mind that our children can live healthy lives as we follow the nutrition plan readily accessible through an app on our phones.
Problem: Kids’ safety
Solution: On-the-road security
Another thing we parents have in common is that we always want to ensure the safety of our family. Before, moms couldn’t sleep at night thinking where their children were especially when it was past their curfew. When cellular phones emerged, the convenience of calling and checking on our kids from time to time lessened the parents’ anxiety. But being the protective parents that we are, we always long for the added reassurance when we know they’re on the road.
UCPB Gen launched Blackbox car insurance feature recently, it’s designed to help parents like us monitor our cars activity anytime, anywhere. Powered by VTEL GPS tracker, this Blackbox has advanced telematic technology that secure the safety of our car and loves ones while on the road. It detects car’s vital signs such as speed, distance traveled, location and even rate your driver’s driving skills. In case of accident, it will send real-time updates to informs us about the incident, thanks to the crash sensor feature it also has. All of these information, is just within our fingers just by logging-in in the Blackbox Insurance app that can be activated once we acquire the service.
