I recently shared how my family uses Skype to stay connected with loved ones out of town. From science projects to dance tips, my daughter keeps in touch with her aunt, uncle and favorite dance teacher with Skype. You better believe that when she brings home homework about biology or geology, it’s time get a hold of her aunt and uncle and let the experts help out (it doesn’t hurt to have an aunt and uncle who both teach science)! We also use it when we travel, because goodness knows that BFF’s can’t go more than a few days without seeing each other, and have to see each other from their travel destinations.

Skype is a great way to stay together for anyone, but I think there is something extra special about families and kids using it. Kids are so much more engaged when they can see the person they are talking to, and watch the little ones grow up from conversation to conversation.
