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.
