St. Petersburg, FL, July 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- A recent petition has begun circulating requesting that state legislators enact laws that would require public childcare facilities to provide live video streaming access to parents. The petition is called the Transparent Childcare Movement. And so far its movement is reaching far and wide.
According to the founder of Ident-A-Kid Services of America, Bob King, “It is just a matter of time before ‘streaming open door policies’ will be the norm.” And he should know. For over 28 years, Ident-A-Kid Services of America has been the pioneer of child safety and security technology. They now have over 200 locations in 40 states and Puerto Rico. According to Childcare Center Director, Shelia Andrews, “Some new parents call almost every day to see how their child is doing, some even call every few hours.”
It is reported that 9 out of 10 parents experience the pain of separation anxiety. In a recent PBS interview, Dr. Lawrence Cohen, Ph.D. stated, “You may have had a horrible experience which can make you over-worry about your kids, or a wonderful experience which could make you insensitive to places where your kids may be having a hard time.” Either way, Adult Separation Anxiety (aka ASA) is real! Granting the petition would give parents a way to “stay connected to their children while they’re at work.” And a way for parents to “not miss out on precious moments of their child’s learning and development.”
Rick Hagan, CEO of Ident-A-Kid Services, and his tech staff have already come up with a simple solution. A service called ParentObserve, which installs wireless, web streaming video cameras that are accessed by parents through a smartphone app. He said that the streaming feed follows a strict security protocol insuring only those authorized have access. For Parents, this could mean a sigh of relief.
