Our lives are busy. As parents, we want to prioritize our children. We want to do everything we can to invest in them relationally, to guide them developmentally and to help them grow in their faith in Christ. But it’s just so easy to get caught up in the urgent day-to-day business of life.
Every parent has 936 weeks of influence from the time their child is born until they graduate. Parent Cue helps you count the weeks and connects you with practical things to read, do or say to help you engage with the heart of your child this week. Designed for parents of babies through high schoolers, these prompts will come in the form of videos and things to talk about in the morning, at meal time or while you are cuddling with your toddler or driving in the car. Each week there’s even a Phase Cue to help you understand the developmental phase your child is in today.
936 weeks. You don’t want to miss a single one.
• The ability to adjust the phase cues for children with mild or moderate special needs for both English and Spanish.
• The ability to turn the countdown on/off for each child.
• Content can now include formatting, including links.
• The ability to apply a church change to all children.
• New icons and log-in screen!

So this app is sooooo cool! There is so many amazing things about this app that it is very hard to just pinpoint one part of it! I have all of my kids and step kids in the app and it is a reminder for myself that I have so many weeks left with my kids before they are grownups! When I am at my ends wit and feel frustrated I am able to open up the app and it reminds me how blessed I am to have each kid and helps me understand where they are at emotionally mentally and gives me ideas for what I can do to be a better parent! Also for my younger kiddos it has videos that we’re able to watch together! And my kids absolutely love the one on one quality time even if the video is 5 to 7 minutes long it gives enough time for me to be able to give them that and learn with them, and go over scripture with them and pray with them... but it’s not too long to where it takes up all day if you have more than one kiddo! It gives me solid biblical direction- in my home our kids are ages 5-17 which is A LOT of different stages! I have emotional crazy teenagers that are challenging new things and ideas and wanting more freedom and independence and sometimes I’m stuck because of questions or behaviors but I seriously am able to find great ideas and understanding because the app designers really went out of there way to do the research to get every area!! I hope you enjoy as much as I have!!! Super amazing!!
I really like the Parent Cue app. I’ve tried various ways to have devotional times with my kids ages 10 and 4. It has often felt forced and not productive. I appreciate that there is a different lesson/video for my 10 year old than my 4 year old. The lessons are well done with up to date talk, themes, dress, etc. I especially appreciate that African American’s are included in the the line up-I could tell my daughter was excited about that. My kids learn these lessons on Sunday and we can go back and watch them once or twice during the week. The conversation starters also help keep the theme going in a natural way during the week. Parent Cue is definitely a perfect fit for us!
I feel like this app is a good start. For starters, it’s super easy to navigate. I like that it shows you how many weeks you have with your kiddos before they graduate from high school- it kind of puts things in perspective. You get to watch what the kids are watching in Sunday school so you can talk about it later. There’s the monthly memory verse and activity to reinforce the lessons, too.
The additional parent blog and podcast are nice resources- my kids are little-little, so it’s easy to get caught up and forget that they’re still new to EVERYTHING.
I wish it had an option to add more activities or memory verses. I’m seeking for any tips to put God’s word into tangible actions that they can understand and connect to. (I.e. giving them honey to eat while saying good words and vinegar while saying unkind things.) And they’re little sponges, I know they can handle more than one memory verse a month.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
