It’s officially the start of summer. That means most kids are off from school.
There is plenty to do during the summer months – camping, the beach, county fairs, backyard barbecues, swimming in the pool, vacations and so much more. There can also be plenty of downtime, which is fine, that is until the kids start uttering those dreaded words “Mom, I’m bored. What can I do?” Ugh! That’s the worse.
Just because it’s summer time doesn’t mean that parents don’t have to still try and balance their schedules – not only their own schedules but also those of their kids. Parents still have to coordinate play dates, activities, birthday parties, barbecues, car pools, movie dates and so forth. School may be out, but planning and organizing a family’s schedule is something that takes place year round.
Intel recognizes these school-free months can be some of the most challenging for busy moms and dads. They created an interesting infographic (below) that shows how an Intel-powered tablet can help busy parents throughout their day.
I especially like the part about “decompressing.” I feel that its very important for any parent. I personally enjoy catching up on my favorite blogs and websites, looking for awesome things on Pinterest and checking out the latest viral videos on YouTube. That is how I like to unwind and have a little “me time” before going to bed and starting the same stuff over again the next day.
I have an Intel tablet that I keep in my bag and take with me so I can catch up on things when I’m on the go. It’s great to have while you are waiting around some where. It also helps to keep the kids busy.
A tablet is a must have for me. I feel more productive when I have it handy.
Do you have an Intel-tablet? If so, how do you use it throughout the day? Do you use it to help you schedule activities and play dates? Do you use it to keep up with work? Feel free to share your thoughts.
If you are interested in learning more about all of the latest Intel-powered devices, Intel’s recent spring tech guide is a great resource. Intel is system processor – not a specific brand. You can find Intel in tablets (and other devices) from HP, Lenovo, Dell, Acer and Toshiba, to name a few. All of the devices we own (tablets, laptops, desktop) all have Intel inside.
