Santa's Watching app helps calm child temper tantrums

If you have a child then we're sure you've experienced a temper tantrum. And sometimes those tantrums can come at the worst possible time. But thanks to a Houston dad there is a way to keep your child in check this Holiday season.

Rick Gillis, a father of two toddlers, designed an app called Santa's Watching which encourages your child to behave with the help of Santa.

All you have to do is push a button and the app will send a message from Santa Claus straight to your phone that you can play for your child to let them know "Santa's Watching." The message tells your child that he or she needs to listen to mommy or daddy in that gentle way that only Santa can deliver. 

You can use the app over and over again, with different messages, so that your child will know that Santa really is watching all the time.

The app can be bought in the iPhone App Store for $0.99.
