Every parent wants their child to be kind, empathetic, confident, and well-adjusted…but sometimes we aren’t sure how to best go about that. We can teach reading, writing, and arithmetic, but how do we instill critical thinking and compassion in our children? Enter the KidCoach app.
It’s so simple! Choose certain skills you want to work on with your child, pick a question you like from the hundreds available, then have a discussion. There are prompts and guidance if you need them to help you take the conversation as far as you want.
After your conversation is over, use the traffic light in the app to rate the discussion – Was it great? Just okay? Could it have gone better? Using your feedback and the topics you chose that day, the app will then suggest similar questions to help cement that skill into your child. You also have the option to “favorite” cards you found especially helpful and can also share them with others.
Do you ever get to the end of a day and feel like you haven’t been able to do anything meaningful with your kids? KidCoach quick conversation starters inspire tired parents and they only take five minutes. Finish your day with that “high five” feeling of a parenting job well done! Conversation topics/skill options include:
- Critical Thinking
- …and more!
KidCoach Pros and Cons
- Free two-week trial
- Convenient, easy-to-use app
- “Favorites” section to review questions at a later time
- The only con would be because it is only available in an app format, users are limited to smartphone/tablet owners. If you have one of those, there are no cons to giving KidCoach a try!
Helpful Resources from KidCoach
Be sure to visit the KidCoach website to read their blog filled with articles and tips for making the best use of time with your children to get them talking and thinking well!
KidCoach also has a podcast called KidCoach Conversations where they ask kids a question from their app. Listening to this will give parents not only some entertainment but will also provide an idea of how best to use the app to ask their own children these guided questions.
What Real Homeschoolers Have to Say About KidCoach
KidCoach App is a quick and easy tool to get a good conversation started with your children. It also enables your children to dig deeper into the conversation instead of just giving yes or no answers. We enjoyed hearing the different perspectives from each of our children as we used KidCoach. ~ R.O. Texas
