Besides protecting our children from harm and keeping them safe, perhaps the most important job as a parent is to teach our children to fare well in the world alone, once they’ve outgrown our care. This doesn’t just mean teaching them to survive; but to contribute- To be decent human beings, and give back to the world in a way that is beneficial to both themselves and mankind as a whole. A Better World for Kids game has sponsored this post so that they can get the word out about this great new game!
One way we tackle this job, as parents, is to teach children responsibility and respect. While this can be done through games and fun, it’s sometimes hard to weed through the violent and time-wasting games. “A Better World for Kids” is a game that provides a brilliant, yet simple, resolution for this dilemma. A Better World has just launched this new virtual game- this game teaches responsibility and respect!
A Better World for Kids was developed to instill a passion in children for doing good and thinking positively while still having fun. The real-world aspect of A Better World for Kids teaches children that they can make a difference in the world and that their actions can have an impact. It also encourages children to step away from technology and screens for a little bit each day and truly experience life.
This is a family friendly, non-violent, game for children that encourages positive action; while drawing on children’s imaginations. Children love to pretend they’re like Mom and Dad. This game has jobs that allow them to practice adult task like having a job, driving safely, and even recycling!
This mentality doesn’t just stop after the game! Children can actually register chores and good deeds that they’ve done AT HOME into the game, and receive points! The more good deeds they do, in the game and at home, the more points they receive. Points, called do good gold, allow children to dress up their virtual characters and decorate their virtual homes.
I love the entire concept of this game, and am SO happy to find something so encouraging for children, while still providing enough fun aspects to capture their children. There are also versions of this game for teens and adults as well! The positive post in the game allows children to share notes with each other, and share their hopes and dreams right within the game.
After the success of our A Better World game on Facebook, we wanted to expand on the momentum of our “Do Good” revolution. The BetterWorldians Vision makes the world a better place by focusing on and encouraging the best in everyone, especially our children. We believe that the solutions to today’s problems are found by bringing out our better natures.
We think you do, too. We believe that people want a positive vision for a better world, and Kickstarter is the perfect place to let people “put their money where their heart is” and fund projects that can truly make a difference. Projects like this are rarely supported by big companies or venture capitalists. They are only made possible with the support of everyday folks who want to create things that make the world a better place.
This game provides the perfect balance between the responsibilities of the real world, and the joys and fun that come along with childhood! So far, 2.5 million people have done good deeds in this Facebook game.
