Inner Strengths

Build An Invisible Armor To Defend Against the Ups and Downs of Life and Reach Dreams

The strengths within ourselves are invisible yet more durable and lasting than physical ones. Despite receiving the best possible education, not all children succeed in life at an equal level once they leave the cocoon of school. Social-emotional skills, cultural fluidity and character strengths are equally important in combination with academic performance to give children the best chance of long-term success and happiness.

The Inner Strengths That We Build In Our Training

CONFIDENCE

The more confident children are, the more likely they are to try new things, stand firm against peer pressure, feel proud of who they are, and really give their best shot at everything they do. Components of growth mindset like positive thinking are taught, practiced and reinforced.

RESILIENCE

Growing numbers of expert say resilience is the #1 key to success. We don’t just “lecture” about resilience. In our programs, children learn by doing–overcoming, problem-solving tough situations like bullying, peer pressure, unexpected changes, test anxiety, rejection, etc.

COMMUNICATION

We cover topics including active listening, perspective taking, word choices, body language, negotiation styles that children usually have to wait until college to learn. Boosting communication skills benefit children's academic, social and family life by helping them feel understood and obtain support.

EMPATHY

Empathy is foundational to conflict resolution, leadership and emotional wellbeing. It doesn’t just help people get along, but also enhances happiness and reduce stress. Perspective taking is frequently practiced throughout all programs, and aides problem solving greatly.

COOPERATION

Lessons in this category help your child in conflict resolution and become a leader from an early age. Developing the cooperation strength also help children make, keep friends friends, and start preparing for leadership roles.

DISCIPLINE

Self-disciplined children control their impulses, considering possible consequences and goals before they act. Our programs purposely challenge children in areas they most need work. Children will face positive role models as well as learn to resist temptations.

Why Social and Emotional Strengths Matter?

Children who participate in character education, foreign language and social emotional learning programs are likely to perform better at school than their classmates and make thoughtful and rewarding decisions in school, career, and life.

Social skills acquired during childhood lay the foundation for a successful future. A 20-year study confirmed a strong association between the early acquisition of social skills and future success in both academic and professional lives. On the contrary, children who lack social competence skills are likely to experience loneliness, career setbacks, substance abuse problems and emotional distress.

Social Skill

At curaFUN, our fun and educational games, language immersion and comics help children acquire the knowledge and tools they need to establish a healthy self image, bounce back from setbacks, collaborate with peers, think before they act, understand and regulate their emotions, actions and thoughts in different situations, allowing them to be more socially aware and establish positive relationships.

curaFUN provides interactive and fun learning formats for kids that build their character strengths, cultural fluidity and social-emotional skills. By improving your child’s strengths, our goal is to help them succeed in their personal, professional and social life wherever they go in the world.
