After analysis of hundreds of data points collected around the modern family experience and how it is changing, the PSFK consulting team noticed that an array of apps and platforms are helping parents respect their children’s desire for autonomy while simultaneously staying in  control and setting measurable expectations. In most cases, these platforms work towards encouraging good behavior and instilling life lessons, while offering incentives for keeping up good habits.
