Google has launched a new website that will help parents with kids’ tech.
According to Google, two in five parents are not confident in talking about different tech-related topics with the kids and this includes discussions about things like screen time, digital wellbeing and discovering quality apps, games and activities.
This is why they have launched a new website that offers detailed guides that spell out how to approach your kids’ technology use from various organizations.
Google said in a statement:
“Alongside overviews of our kids and families products, you can also catch up on the latest apps and services and find helpful information on parental controls across the web,”
Parents will feel comfortable when encouraging their kids to spend more time on certain platforms.
Parents can now encourage children to spend more time with apps they approve of by designating them as “always allowed,” even when their screen time limit is up.
“You can now see added details to daily, weekly and monthly activity reports. This gives you an overview of how your child is spending their time in apps, how it changes over a week or month and what portion of time was spent in always allowed’ apps,”
Last year, three in five parents allowed increased screen time for their kids as they stayed home.
Google said it is also working with online firm Headspace to create content that helps families practice mindfulness and wellbeing.
Over the next month, an episode from the new Headspace Breathers series will debut weekly on YouTube and YouTube Kids, the company said.
