We’re about children discovering important things in life
We all want children to be..
• kept as safe as possible from everyday hazards
• confident, outgoing and resilient
• accepted and feel that they belong
• social and make friends
A recent study conducted by Harvard University showed that much of our future success depends on our social skills and emotional intelligence.”
“Young children experience their world as an environment of relationships, and these relationships affect virtually all aspects of their development.” ‘Young Children Develop in an Environment of Relationships’ – Centre of the Developing Child – Harvard University – Working Paper 1
Despite the huge changes in technology and how we interact, face to face communication and social skills remain fundamentally important elements in children’s life outcomes. These are learned and developed through both passive and active influences in a child’s life.
Kids Who Know takes children’s ‘screen time’ and combines it with opportunities for face to face conversations and additional activities in the home.
We all wish children that are be confident, socially outgoing and resilient. We want them to feel a sense of belonging and community in their groups.
Furthermore we wish that in time, they become successful in all aspects of their adult life.
Kids Who Know can play a role in ensuring that both occur.
PRACTICAL HAZARD SAFETY
Every day children are hurt through accidents and mishaps that are entirely preventable.
These are usually caused by a wrong split second “yes/no”, “go/stop”, “do/don’t” decision that is made through ignorance or naivety. If we can raise awareness about everyday hazards that face children, then we empower them to make these split second decisions correctly.
The most effective way to do this is through anecdote, mentorship and simple story telling children can understand and identify with.
Whether its toxic substances, electric shocks, fire or traffic, if this program stops just one child from getting hurt through them making a better decision, then surely it is priceless.
WHY USE CHILD CHARACTERS?
Children respond well to characterisation.
They learn through developing a natural affinity with them.
Each character’s personality is usually quickly worked out and a favourite is soon chosen.
