Let Your Children Monkey Around As They Learn 

Developer: EQtainment The world of instant gratification, helicopter parenting and ever-present technology is impacting the development of children's social and emotional skills. Kindergarten teachers are reporting that over 30% of children entering their classrooms lack the social and emotional skills they need for a school environment. Research has shown that EQ (emotional skills) has a higher correlation to life success than IQ. EQ skills need to be taught and Q Wunder is the first app to teach, practice and measure all aspects of social and emotional learning through entertaining videos, games and music, all starring a monkey named Q. It gives parents and educators a simple and entertaining way to address life skills with children. The heart of Q Wunder is in its original programming. Children join Q on fun adventures fueled by valuable lessons that develop their social and emotional skills. Each original episode is accompanied by a music video incorporating the message from the episode as well as a game based on activities from the lesson. The Q Wunder portal for parents allows them to browse and share articles, podcasts and videos curated to reinforce what their children are learning.
