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 feeling.

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

How to encourage a child’s biophilia

The sight of children lugging large heavy bags while sprinting to school reveals how their schedules are dictated by aptitudes considered important by the modern world: tight class schedules, sports and exercise, homework, and chores. But not the natural world.
