One of NewsWatch TV’s recent videos, “In Social Graces — Creating Happier and More Peaceful Households,” (https://newswatchtv.com/2018/01/04/social-graces-newswatch-review/) is AppWatch’s newest review about an app that aims to make your living space a more harmonious area.
Mobile devices can take us away from the dinner table conversation and forge a disconnect in families, but Social Graces is an app that can actually help, not hamper. Once parents create a profile for each child, a “personal contract” is created that includes 10 daily expectations. The child must sign the contract. You can set your own goals or choose from 100 preloaded skills, behaviors or manners. Social Graces, which comes with a 30-day free trial, also is a great competition tool for multiple-sibling households. Kids can vie for daily points if they complete daily expectations, and there also is a link to an Amazon wishlist for a job well done.
