Are weak communication skills holding your child back from their full potential?

"Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know." Jim Rohn

Social Skill

When children aren’t receiving adequate help to develop effective communication skills, they struggle with making and keeping friends, handling peer pressure, voicing their opinions in class, and expressing their feelings. They’ll also have difficulty picking up cues from other people, which can lead to bullying, isolation, and a feeling of resentment. In our games, children rehearse de-escalating situations with active listening and giving space to a classmate’s feelings.

Being a good communicator helps your children follow, understand, and follow directions more closely and consequently, achieve higher grades. Children have an easier time making and keeping friends when they build good communications skills and will enjoy better relationships with family members and their community. They also grow up to be better negotiators, academics, managers, and doctors.

According to Harvard’s Dr. Tony Wagner, author of The Global Achievement Gap, today’s teens will need the following seven skills to be best prepared for the challenges of the future of work:

1. Critical thinking and problem-solving
2. Collaboration across networks and leading by influence
3. Agility and adaptability
4. Initiative and entrepreneurialism
5. Effective oral and written communication
6. Accessing and analyzing information
7. Curiosity and imagination

curaJOY’s games are dedicated to enhancing your child’s communication skills through naturalistic instruction, continued practice, and timely professional feedback in a gamified format. Our programs include comprehensive assessments of your child’s emotional intelligence and include personalized guidance specific to your child’s strengths and weaknesses.

When a parent has mental illness, how to support kids

Between the long hours, many responsibilities, and lack of control, few jobs in our society are as demanding as parenting. If a parent has a mental illness like depression or anxiety, raising kids becomes even more difficult. Many parents live in secrecy, believing that they are the only ones who struggle like they do. But parenting with mental illness is far more common than many people suspect. In a survey ... Read More

What Type of Friend Are You? How ADHD Influences Friendships

Whether you collect new friends easily or lean on a few, long-term friendships dating back to kindergarten, there’s no wrong way to build relationships. This is true especially for people with ADHD, who often report that their symptoms complicate, challenge, and color friendships. The ones that work are the ones that accept and celebrate their ADHD.

What to Know About Social-Emotional Development

Many parents have heard the term “social-emotional development,” but what does it mean in the real world? Put simply, social-emotional development refers to children’s ability to “experience, manage and express” their feelings, build relationships and actively explore their environment, according to a 2005 report from the nonprofit Zero to Three. Managing one’s behavior, expressing emotions appropriately and developing empathy are all part of the journey. It’s “understanding how our bodies ... Read More

Study examines bonds between babies, parents

It may seem obvious, but the emotional bond babies develop with their parents is crucial — not only for their survival, but also to ensure positive outcomes throughout life. Less-obvious, however, is how this bond — known as attachment — develops. Secure attachment during infancy predicts healthy social-emotional outcomes across the lifespan. Insecure attachment foretells less-positive developmental outcomes for children, such as behavioral and academic problems. Patty Kuo, assistant professor ... Read More

How Parents Can Keep Kids Talking and Protect Mental Health

My community is grieving. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by the suicides this past month in our local high schools. “That was the fifth suicide this month,” one distressed mother told me. “They were successful kids; some were top athletes. I worry for my kids. How can I keep them talking to me so this doesn’t happen to us?” Her kids were in elementary school. Parents know that ... Read More

Why unstructured free play is a key remedy to bullying

October was National Bullying Prevention Month , and in my decade of teaching in high-poverty public elementary schools, I’ve seen strategy after strategy and initiative after initiative implemented to decrease bullying. While every case is unique, having a general understanding of why a student chooses to bully can be helpful. Kids usually bully for one of the following reasons: they are frustrated with life’s circumstances and don’t have the emotional ... Read More
