Auckland Uni trials parenting apps

From Checkpoint, 5:44 pm on 24 December 2020

From tantrums to trouble at dinner time and bed time - there are a lot of obstacles parents come up against with young children. A team at Auckland University has created two parenting apps, with the aim of helping parents identify behavioural problems and be able to intervene early on. Tania Cargo is a clinical psychologist at the University of Auckland. Nita Blake-Persen asked her why the apps are needed in the first place.
