For parents looking for a way to give their kids positive reminders, this app can be a very useful alternative to old-fashioned nagging. For kids who need to remember to take a medication at a specific time each day or who need to get themselves organized and off to school by themselves, Bear in Mind App: To Do list, reminder, tasks may be an excellent self-directed support for both self-care and time management. Still, this reminder and alarm app has room for improvement. Adding a daily repeat function -- so that users could select a task reminder once to repeat daily on weekdays, for example, or all seven days -- could streamline this process for tasks kids need to repeat every school day or every day.

Parents may want to start by setting reminders first before handing over control to their kid and keep an eye on how they use the app at first to make sure it's effective. Even though the developer says it's for children and teens, many teens will probably find the look of the app too baby-ish for them and the functionality too isolated for their hyperconnected, social media-oriented lives. But for younger kids who are just learning to become self-organized, stay on task, and be on time, this is a terrific start.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
