Even though Google already offers many tools to help navigate our relationship with technology, one size does not fit all. The Digital Wellbeing website is an effort to re-contextualize Google’s tools into concrete, human experiences that feel relevant and useful.
We also realized that parents needed an entirely different set of tools. The real problem parents face is how to talk about technology with their kids; when is the right time to get a first phone, or how do you educate kids on using technology more responsibly? We created a family guide both in a printed and digital format, aimed to simplify those interactions by providing a set of conversation starters, allowing parents to tailor the examples and phrasing to fit the maturity level and language of their child.
