Company History:

Cool Kind Kid  began as a comprehensive social skills and character values curriculum.  Successful pilot studies not only showed that kids were grasping the content, and behaving better, but a decrease in bullying incidents was observed.  Cool Kind Kid Social Skills, Character Values, and Anti-Bullying Curriculum, Early Elementary School Edition.  This curriculum, and other products, is enhanced by the award-winning Cool Kind Kid music.

As a result of those pilot studies, a county Y director asked us to create shorter programs for their camps and after school programs.  We then created the Cool Kind Kid Camp Kits, for ages 4-6 and Ages 7-9.  These are appropriate for indoor or outdoor use, for schools, camps, before-after school, community and recreation programs.

Several years ago focus groups with parents and teachers indicated the need for shorter, less expensive materials for parents or teachers to use to teach social skills to their kids or students.  We have created the 1st of 5 picture books, the 1st of 5 handbooks, the first of 3 flash & game cards, and other products that support the curricula or can stand alone.  See the phoro of these award-winning products.

Additionally, we have a fun, musical school assembly program that can be performed live in the South Jersey area.  It is also available fully downloadable.  https://www.coolkindkid.com/assemblies/

Cool Kind Kid has always been self-published, but would appreciate connections with large educational publishers.

Additional Information:

Bullying is the #2 epidemic in the US.  All 50 states now have legislation in place requiring school districts to adopt anti-bullying policies.  Though dealing with bullying issues after the fact is necessary, those practices are not getting to the root of the problem.   Research is showing that those reactive policies are not working.

A bullying cycle has been established; it starts with rudeness or incivility, moves into bullying, and can then escalate into violence.  The challenge is addressing the beginning of the cycle, which is the easiest to tackle.  Current research in now supporting social skills, or social competence training, at young ages, as the missing link in bullying prevention.  Cool Kind Kid has always been proactive in our approach to offering young children the social skills tools they need to reject bullying.  Through award-winning music, fun characters and activities, kids are engaged as they learn, "The KIND kid is the COOL kid, not the bully."
