When is the last time you asked your kids a question they were not expecting?!
As a busy parent it is easy to get into the habit of just asking “how was school today?” or having other types of routine conversations. I know I used to with my kids!
In this podcast I’ll inspire you to ask quick, fun and quirky questions that your kids will love to talk and think about. It will help you mix up your conversations at home AND build your child’s 21st century skills e.g. creativity, critical thinking, communication etc.
Each episode is a short 15 – 20 minutes long featuring a different 6 -12 year old child that I have a quick chat with. Listen in to hear conversations around “What are 10 things to do with a cup?” (Creativity) or “How would you cross a river if you had to?” (Critical Thinking) or "How could you describe a car to an alien?” (Communication) etc.
You could also listen with your child and pause now and again asking what they would say in the same situation!
Each of the questions and prompts I use comes from an app I’ve built for parents. It’s called KidCoachApp and, if you like what you hear, I invite you to download also and get started for free: www.kidcoach.app.
Let's get your kids talking and thinking!

    Is any one animal more important than another?

    Is any one animal more important than another?

    This week we spoke with Anita (age 12) about the food chain, and how we place value on animals. We thought critically about how some animals are stronger, faster, or higher up the chain, but does that make them more important.

    What persuades people?

    What persuades people?

    This week we spoke with Aneri (age 10) about what makes someone persuasive, and how leaders motivate and inspire others. Using the Aesop's fable of the "Sun and the Wind", we think about what makes a good argument, how we should talk to people, and when being persuasive can be a bad thing.For more fast and fun questions to get your kids talking and thinking, download the KidCoachApp from your usual app store!👉 http://onelink.to/4jbmqh

    If you could have any three wishes granted, what would they be?

    This week we spoke with Ansh (age 10) about what he would do with three wishes. This question really can show you what a child values most, and what they would do if they had the power to do so. There were some really creative ideas mentioned.For more fast and fun questions to get your kids talking and thinking, download the KidCoachApp from your usual app store!👉 http://onelink.to/4jbmqh

Thought provoking

My son recently had a great interactive and thought provoking session Kids Coach team. He immediately felt at ease with the friendly coach. The questions and discussions encouraged my son to think logically and express his true self. Highly recommended.

Inspiring

My daughter loves Kid Coach as she has the opportunity to talk and be heard as well as think about important qualities that are not learnt or focused on elsewhere. Motivating and inspiring for the whole family. Thank you
