The KidCoachApp helps parents develop essential skills in their 6-12 year old kids, simply through conversation.

It has HUNDREDS of quick, fun and thought-provoking questions deliberately designed to build creativity, critical thinking, communication and many other key 21st-century skills.

For example:

  • “What are 10 things to do with a cup?” (Creativity)
  • “Is there life on other planets?” (Critical Thinking)
  • “When is it good to fail at something?” (Resilience)
  • “How would you describe a car to an alien?” (Communication)
  • “Who is a leader you admire and why?” (Leadership)

Each conversation is a digital flashcard card and has plenty of guidance and prompts to help parents take conversations deeper. They have been designed with the support of parenting and education experts (think BBC, Disney and Cambridge)!

The KidCoachApp is super easy to use and gives parents inspiration in the palm of their hand. Conversations can be slotted into their daily routine, wherever they have five minutes with the kids. Some do theirs on the way to school, others at the dinner table, others before bed.

Here's some feedback about the app: "There are loads of apps out there for math or English but nothing that teaches kids to think and to discuss. I haven't seen anything like this before!"
