Parental control apps can be seen as commanding and intrusive, especially when it comes to adolescents. We see this as one reason why conflicts arise in families.
Rather than taking a surveillance approach like many other apps do, we're encouraging a change in perspective by guiding family members through a wide range of activities, in hope of achieving a better balance when it comes to using technology.
Activities in FamilySense are aligned according to the 'Five Ways to Wellbeing', an research-based set of guidelines for promoting mental health.
Normal parental control apps are way too intrusive, and I would not be happy using them. FamilySense is way better because I can progress to a higher level in the app that allows me to set my own decisions instead of my parents!
