Can you believe how little and cute these guys were?
The other day, I was half an hour late to pick up my son from his martial arts class. I had a good excuse: My other son had to be dropped off at baseball practice—across town—at the exact same time. By the time I arrived at the studio, my normally stoic boy was holding back tears.
“Maybe I should call an Uber to pick you up next time,” I joked (sort of), as we raced through traffic to get back to the baseball field to pick up the other son.
Well, it’s like somebody read my mind, because recently I’ve heard about several ride apps that are aimed at frazzled parents like myself who are struggling to find ways to get their kids from point A to point B. Available in the LA area and San Francisco/Bay Area, these kid drop-off apps are advertising features such as background checks, drivers with experience caring for kids, and specialized insurance for underage passengers. One service even touts its all-female team of drivers.
I have to admit, it sounds like a great idea.
But after thinking about it, I wasn’t so sure. Read the full post Is Uber for Kids Really a Good Idea? at Mom.me and find out why…
