CueKids was initiated by us at Simply Body Talk, a company specialising in the niche area of nonverbal communication since 2013. Looking up the latest research and competitor offerings showed our content team something startling about kids and nonverbal behavior.
So many misconceptions are afloat when it comes to kids’ people skills. For example, search for emotions and kids and you will find tons of companies offering to teach kids how to understand emotions by reading faces. This is not the right approach. The fact is, kids are born with an ability to read the basic emotions on faces. If one wants to encourage kids to be good at human interactions, it has to be better than this. Which is why at CueKids we take a holistic approach of teaching kids to focus on the entire body language rather than just facial expressions. This helps them understand other people better and improve their own communication skills. For various different type of interactions that kids would be doing as they grow up like speaking in front of an audience, connecting well with parents and friends, choosing the right career, making sense of the world around them etc.
Through the years, at Simply Body Talk, when we have worked with some of the best companies’ senior leaders, our attempt has been to teach an approach rather than leave the audience with a few takeaways. This helps them imbibe a learning for long term benefit. Our method for connecting with kids and imparting useful lessons stays the same, only here it would be only through fun activities and games that they can relate to, and yet challenge their minds.
