Engage Your Child’s Heart and Mind

Games For Self-Confidence and Social Emotional Learning

Being a kid today is hard work. School work, homework, socialization, extra-curricular activities—life can sometimes feel overwhelming for our young ones. 

And for children of multi-cultural backgrounds, the challenges can be even more pronounced. Navigating two cultures, and often two languages can be mentally and emotionally taxing. The result is often a lack of confidence, loneliness, and poor academic performance. 

The Tools Your Child Needs to Thrive

At curaJOY, we understand that it takes more than just academic achievement for a child to be happy. It takes social and emotional fitness to succeed. 

That’s why we create tools to help your child develop all the skills they need to flourish in the classroom and beyond. 


Stop Struggling. Start Growing.

We develop science-backed, A.I.-enabled learning games to promote personal growth and emotional intelligence with the latest advances in brain research, psychology, behavioral science.

Learning how to interact with others while building self-confidence is essential for children to become highly functioning adults.

We were in seventh grade , most of us around 12 years old, when this terrible event happened. It was May 1st, Mayday, and we had a school holiday. Mike and Leonard, ... Read More

The study authors say the ERN may serve as a neuromarker of resilience in children.

The error-related negativity response is an electrical ... Read More

How are teachers using psychology in the classroom?
A child is not a statistic, roll number or a brick in the wall. Every child has a unique way to process life and learning and to impose a one-size-fits-all teaching methodology is insensitive and short-sighted. Research has repeatedly proven that every individual has a certain learning style that is informed by their upbringing, background, social and personal experiences. As ... Read More
