Meet Ollee: a virtual friend for children and parents
Google and Parentzone have teamed up to develop an app for children and parents.
Have you tried the new app Ollee yet?
We’ve worked closely with children and parents to create an early-intervention tool that will help 8-11 year olds with their emotional wellbeing and encourage communication within families.
It’s designed to help children reflect on how they feel and to process their experiences with the support and help of their parents and carers – and it does this by offering them advice about a range of subjects: school, family, friends, their body, the internet and the world.
For each of these subjects, children can choose an emotion that matches how they feel about it: happy, angry, sad, confused, frustrated, stressed or worried.
It’s packed with advice about subjects including school, friendships, family life and the internet – and it’s available now, for free. We hope you like it.
Parents can also follow the same pathways to get advice on the subjects and emotions they think their child might be struggling with. This advice is presented in the same bite-sized format but is tailored to the parent audience.
