Set up an @hastwoparents.com email address for each of your children. Then, hand this email address out: to their teachers, coaches, doctors - even their friend's parents.
Being out of the loop is never fun. And getting dropped off an email thread accidentally, especially when it's full of class schedules or field trip details, can be a disaster.
Most families are more than just parents and children these days. A HasTwoParents.com email address can be a great way to keep grandparents or other caregivers in the loop, too.
Seriously. You don't have to change any settings in your email client, reset any SMTP servers or connect to any new POP3 or IMAP accounts. Just tell folks to use the new address, and you're on your way.
Sally's teacher sends an email to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. This automatically gets delivered to both her parents, Deidre and Bill.
When Bill replies (and forgets to push reply-all), hastwoparents.com automatically includes Deidre and Jane on the reply email.
