This list was inspired by a couple of months worth of reading Parents magazine. They share a lot of resources and solutions each month, such as the applications mentioned here. I had to share since I knew my readers would find them useful. (And I do not work for Parents magazine. They have no idea I am sharing these applications with my readers. Neither does iTunes.)
