Connect With Your Child Through Conversation With The Scholastic KidQ App! #KidQApp #Ad

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scholastic Parent & Child. All opinions are 100% mine.



    One of my favorite parts of the day is arriving home from work and being able to talk to both of my boys about their day.  They are usually abuzz with everything that happened at school as well as the conversations and interactions that they had with their peers and teachers.  After working and being away from them throughout the day, I love having this time to connect with them and spending a little bit of special time together.

    As an educator of over fifteen years, I was thrilled to find out that Scholastic, an educational brand that I have trusted throughout the years, recently developed an App to help parents connect with their children through conversation.  After all, what better way to establish this connection than by talking and sharing with your kids?  The KidQ app for iPhone and Android facilitates conversation via fun Q&A’s about the things that both kids and parents are the most curious about.

    Questions like “Why is the sky blue?” And “Why do we say ears of corn?” are natural discussion starters and get kids and parents thinking and conversing in an organic way.   Each day, users are notified of a new playful question that serves as a catalyst for conversation along with the official answer.  We really enjoyed comparing our explanations to the facts!

    My sons really love when we get the notification that the new question is ready for us to review.  They literally get so excited about it that they hound me until I give them the signal that it’s time to check it out.  The best part is that this awesome App is totally free, along with being educational!

    i like to talk to my daughter about things more interesting than small talk, or how her day went. we talk about dinosaurs, or how we can stay safe and healthy.

  2. We make sure to have a nice conversation every night over dinner. We all sit down and eat together and discuss what happened that day.

  3. This reminds me of the old Tell Me Why books. I love talking about stuff that is in-depth, makes it interesting.

  4. That’s pretty cool; My daughter would love that app, which is great because she would be learning too. Thanks for sharing; I’m going to check it out.

  5. What an awesome app Maria. I know my daughters would love playing answer the questions!

  6. The KidQ app sounds really cool. I love spending time sitting down with my son and doing fun things like this with him.

  7. I just ask them questions about things they like. Once they get going they just keep going.

  8. Sounds like a fun way to connect with your kids! Childhood would be so different with all this technology
