of the button will switch to the other kid. If you have more than two kids, each
press of the button will display a menu for you to choose which kid to display.

If you want to let followers know more details than the app can provide, you can send
information in a "highlight." Think of a highlight as a text message to followers.

enter the highlight text and then tap the "Done" button (on the keyboard).
The highlight text will be cleared when the highlight is successfully sent.
If an error occurs sending the highlight, the Broadcast Button will show
"Error" and the text will remain so you can try again.
