Ways The Internet Has Helped Families Run More Efficiently

 Although there is a constant battle between the internet been the best thing since sliced bread and it been used too much, causing stress, and less focused children, there is certainly no denying how much the online world has helped busy families to become more organized and efficient.

Some of the ways it has helped include: 

Online Food Shopping 

Long gone are the days of dragging your small children to the supermarket. If you have ever been the parent who is having to deal with an over-tired two-year-old in the middle of the supermarket then you will probably be extremely thankful for the fact you can now avoid this completely and do it all online. You can sit back, relax with a cuppa, and do your shopping from your sofa at the end of the day when all the children are in bed. And you can even add in the bits you’ve missed through the week right up until the day before it arrives, you don’t get that with the store. 

Medical Help 

We can get doctors’ appointments, counseling, prescriptions, etc. all at the click of a button online. With the help of tools like Zoom, it has become incredibly easy to have your medical concern looked at in the comfort of your home without the need to travel to a doctor’s surgery. This is again something that is brilliant for parents who have small children. And although you need to visit a medical professional such as your opticians in person, you can choose your glasses online from sites like Eyeglasses.com

Working From Home

Although this is something that has now been thrown on people because of Covid-19, it is something that many people are starting to realize what the hype was all about. Many businesses have even started to offer the option of permanent working from home which could help families out majorly. Imagine not having to fit in the school run and your commute and how much extra time that would give you to spend as a family. Not to mention the fact that your working day could even be more relaxing, with research to suggest that the work commute is one of the most stressful times of the day. 


Working from home also has other hidden benefits. That load of washing that usually waits until the end of the day to be sorted can now be done on your screen break and you can get another load on. You could quickly run the hoover around or dust in your afternoon break, or you could prepare tea ready for the evening on your lunch. How about your daily exercise? Because you’re not commuting you could go for a run or walk in the morning, or even on your lunch because of the time you have saved having your fridge and kitchen across from you working from the home office. 


These are just a few of the ways the internet is making today’s families more efficient. Have you noticed any benefits of the internet for your family? Please share some in the comments.
