Abstract: The highly competitive education system is an unavoidable problem for primary school students in China, and excessive learning stress among children is a problem that cannot be ignored in current primary education. In the family environment, parents tend to ignore the stress of children in the learning process and lack encouragement. This paper proposes a theory of connectivity and presents the interaction design and implementation of StressButton to help build a bond between parents and children in coping with stress through the intelligent connection of everyday objects. We conduct a study to verify the connectivity and effectiveness of StressButton. The results show that using the connectivity of IoT to improve the connectedness of family members is a better approach to coping with stress and helping build a relaxed home environment.
