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

curaFUN’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.
