MoodUp – educational apps helping children develop good habits
There’re plenty of educational apps teaching children math, colors and other basic stuff, but not many developing good habits. Why is it so important? “Habits are either the best of servants or the worst of masters” wrote Emmons. As far as I know good habits must be learnt in all ages, but most importantly in childhood. And MoodUp creators are about to launch with a children friendly free application. The idea was so cool that they’ve won i.a. European Startup Sprint Youth event.
How to develop good habits?
You may find great hints in the web. It’s obvious that it’s all about repeating certain activites everyday but many parents find it difficult to force themselves to force grumbling kids to wash their hair, brush teeth or do anything else that should be done.
Creators of MoodUp applications say they have found the solution for that in…Africa. Children there have often quite tough life and a lot of difficult duties like i.e. walking for water. And it’s much easier to do even such obligations when you cooperate and have support from peers.
This is what MoodUp is bringing in – fun and cooperation in developing everyday habbits. They start with oral hygiene and fighting dentophobia. At first it should be available for Android users then in the AppStore. Adding new features to the application will depend on the feedback from users. I think it’s worth to sign up for a free access on their web site and try it at your home.
