If you’re like me and only use your Google Nest Hub for listening to tunes and displaying digital photos, prepare to have your mind BLOWN!
Australian mum Crystal, a counsellor who specialises in perinatal mental health and gentle parenting, shared how she uses her Google Nest Hub to help her kids get ready in the morning – and the internet lost its mind!
I’ll admit I’ve had a Nest Hub for years and had no idea that these routines are inbuilt as part of Google Assistant.
“I’ve set it up so there’s like a family bell that goes off at six in the morning, which is about the time my kids wake up, and it takes them through a list of things they need to do to get themselves ready in the morning. Things like making their bed, getting dressed, brushing their hair, brushing their teeth, having breakfast, things like that.”
Even though Crystal says the morning routine can take her children, who are aged six and three, up to an hour, they get it all done.
“Because they get to go and press on the thing themselves, it keeps them really entertained and they think it’s the best.”
Here’s Crystal’s video on how to set it up:
