Israel21c shares their top seven favorite Israeli innovations to make parenting a little easier.

It’s no secret that being a parent is one busy job. The laundry, the cooking, the endless housekeeping – and all this before you’ve even uttered a word to your dear child or inquired into their well-being.

1. Figure8 carpooling app

It’s great that your kids are involved in so many afterschool activities. It’s just not so great figuring how to get them there and back each time.

Step in Figure8, an app founded by frustrated carpooler dad Yaniv Vakrat that allows parents to form carpool communities free from nagging phone calls or last-minute mistakes.

Parents communicate solely through the Android or iOS app, which can update as regards any driver switches or pick-up and drop-off changes. It can also be integrated into schools to allow for better, more efficient dismissal time.
