New Delhi [India], Jan 18 (ANI): A lot of new age startups are now providing products and solutions with the aim of making the tough journey of a parent a bit easier.

But in the digital age, if there's a problem, there's usually a startup not far behind. And for the modern parent, there are startups offering everything from tips during pregnancy to apps to track your child at school.

Some of these startups aim to provide better coaching to your kid to develop their creative minds.

Here are some startups to look out for in 2018:
