Can one Goally be used with two children?

We tested two children using the same Goally with several families and unfortunately it didn’t work out for any of them. Problems included the kids fighting over Goally or one child finishing tasks ahead of the other such that the second child lost track.  Kids feeling that sense of ownership and having their very own “personal assistant” seems to be an essential part of Goally being effective for families.

Goally is working well for multiple kids in the same family where each child has their own Goally.
