Screen-Monitoring App Teaches Children Responsibility and Family Values
Australia – Spending excessive time using technology can encourage anti-social behavior and parents may often find it difficult to limit the time their children spend using technology. A new app called OurValues aims to teach children family values and how to manage their screen time.
The OurValues app aims to create an environment where parents guide their child’s use of technology. Parents can choose the amount of time they wish their child to use devices each day. They can also decide on a set of responsibilities for their child to complete. Whether children complete the responsibilities assigned to them will determine if their screen time stays the same, increases or decreases. This reward system helps motivate children to collaborate with their parents and complete their daily responsibilities.
Parents can manage their child’s screen time from their own devices. Users can sync a single account with an unlimited amount of devices. For families with more than one child, the OurValues app lets users create customized profiles for each child. be commercially successful, some won’t-and others will fall somewhere in the middle.
