Family technology use can create or amplify conflict in parents’ relationships – we found four key factors that contribute to this issue. We conducted a probe and interview study with eight sets of parents, to explore how and why technology use might cause conflict in their relationships. This paper presents data from two particular sets of parents to illustrate our findings. In doing so, it complements existing work that primarily focuses on parent-child relationships, and contributes to a more complete understanding of how family technology use can affect family dynamics. We also suggest directions for further work to address this issue of conflict between parents, associated with their family's use of technology.
