Empower Children with Self-Expression
How often do we ask children “What do you think?” WhatAreKidsSaying.com is a website created to give children a platform to express their blossoming opinions. At WhatAreKidsSaying.com, we believe that empowering children is one of the greatest investments we can make in our future. Kids are never too young to have their own views, and as adults we are never too old to learn from them.
Allow Your Child to be an Inspiration to Others
A child’s perspective can be both innocent and profound. Just think, right now your child is a budding motivational speaker, a global activist, an expert on politics, an authority on family values and more! WhatAreKidsSaying.com is one of the avenues leading to such great destiny. Check out some of our Q&A video clips and smile, ponder, and explore what’s on the minds of kids everywhere. Hearing what kids are saying is such a joy and will open your eyes. Stories written by teens show their amazing insight into life and how society impacts their world. Reading what their peers are saying will expand your child’s knowledge about kids from other backgrounds and cultures. They just may discover there are more similarities than differences.
WHAT CAN YOUR CHILD EXPECT?
Have you ever noticed how good you feel when someone acknowledges that you’ve done a great job? Sometimes it just takes seeing something that you’ve created in print to get that sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Our website encourages children to see their ideas and creativity come to life before their own eyes. Kids feel good knowing they have a place where their voice counts. Parents can feel great knowing their kids feel proud of themselves.
Promotes Mental Health
WhatAreKidsSaying.com promotes mental health by giving kids a safe online environment to express their thoughts and ideas freely. They can also ask a Board Certified Child & Adult Psychiatrist questions, on our “Ask the Doc” section. Kids don’t have to keep their emotions and concerns bottled up any longer. Kids and teens have a place of refuge where they can express their feelings by writing in their online Time Capsule. They will be able to review the contents of their Time Capsule in a place they can access for years to come.
Children who are in touch with their feelings can also identify and respect the feelings of others around them. The WhatAreKidsSayiing.com writing contests allow kids to both express their ideas and explore what their peers are thinking as well. They can do this openly without fear of rejection due to confidentiality provided.
Kids who use our website have exposure to opportunities to nurture their communication skills. Our writing contests offer youth the chance to share their writing with the world. When they participate in writing contests, they can read the writings of other kids and teens that may have different cultural backgrounds, and perspectives than their own. This resource increases a child’s awareness of different ideas, cultures, and provides an experience that helps shape them as individuals.
Offers a Safe, Secure Environment
Your child’s overall safety is important to you. Maintaining a safe online environment for children is our primary goal. Unlike social networking websites, our members don’t have the option of contacting other users or interacting in chat rooms. WhatAreKidsSaying.com is proud to support children having a safe space for expressing their views. Their perspectives will be free from judgment. We never view, enter, nor expose your child’s time capsule. At WhatAreKidsSaying.com, we value and honor the concept of children having a secure place of refuge for their inner-most thoughts and ideas.
At WhatAreKidsSaying.com, we’ve adapted the Writing and Realization Philosophy which encourages the 4 R’s that we believe will encourage children to develop their writing skills online.
Our Writing and Realization Philosophy teaches kids to:
Realize the potential of their talent and skills.
Respect the ideas and concepts of their peers through contest voting.
Review their own writing within their time capsule and watch themselves progress as writers.
Receive Recognition from their peers which will help to increase their level of confidence.
