Finally. A parenting app that gives us more free time, less guilt, and encourages us to spend LESS money. All at the same time! Since the Komae app has hit the scene, parents are learning how to lean on their village and allow their village lean on them.
Fun Fact : Did you know that Komae means village in Greek?
That’s right. Komae’s bringing village back and parents are pretty stinkin’ excited about it.
Free Free Time
When was the last time you booked a sitter so you could run some errands, take a nap, or go to the doctors office without having a little one all up in your business? Probably not often, if ever, am I right? Well, with Komae, parents are swapping sitting with friends to do all of the above and more. Komae gives parents a permission slip for self care while kids get to enjoy a playdate with friends. I sit for you. You sit for me. It’s as easy as that!
We all want to help each other, but no one wants to be the one to ask. Putting on a face of neediness doesn’t feel good for anyone, so we often go into survival mode rather than asking for a helping hand. And on those occasions that you do suck it up and make the ask, you find yourself wondering how to repay the friend and how to repay them quickly. Do you give them a giftcard? Cash? Beer and pizza?
Well, the beauty of Komae is that it operates on a point system.
Watch someone else’s kids? Earn points.
Have someone watch yours? Spend points.
Now when you ask a friend for a favor, you’re giving them something of value. You’re giving them the gift of free time next time they need it! Think of it as a cycle of reciprocity. Check out our FAQ’s if you want to know more about how it works.
Stop spending your money on a sitter and spend that money on dessert instead. Or a manicure. Or coffee. Or anything that might help you regain a piece of mental sanity in this life we call parenthood. If you want to be really noble and savvy, you could even pop it away in a college savings account.
If you haven’t signed up for Komae yet, today is the day. It’s time for you to have more free time, less guilt, and spend less money. Ready? Set? Go!
