I raise my daughter to be an independent thinker and know what she wants in life. Me? I’m totally opposite of that. I’m pretty independent and decisive when it comes to certain subjects but sometimes I can’t make a decision to save my life. Yes, I’m that lady in the fast food drive thru that takes forever to place my order, (sorry)! It’s important that my daughter learns to communicate how she feels and what’s on her mind but how do I teach that to a toddler? I found a great website called WhysLearning.com that is designed to help parents teach their children social skills including empathy, communication, self-control and more through fun activities. Whys Learning offers activities for ages 3+ that the whole family can do together.
A great game for my two year old is the Faces game. In this game, each player takes turns making faces from a specific list on the website. Other players have 20 seconds to guess the emotion they are portraying in their facial expression. Since my daughter doesn’t know what mischievous, ashamed, proud or a few other words mean, we stick to simple words like happy, sad, angry or excited. It’s a fun game that doesn’t involve anything but your computer (or tablet) and the family. It can be played anywhere, anytime.
Whys Learning works with experts in a variety of fields like education and psychology to ensure all activities are evidence-based and will have a positive impact on our children. Whys was founded by Sean Braacx (super nice, by the way) in 2013. Sean is a product manager and father from Vancouver, Canada.

I have always been fascinated by technology — I love robots and have been in front of a screen since my family purchased our first PC in 1994. Over the years I have seen technology shrink into my pocket and expand into my life.
Technology is a tool that I want to use to bring people together. As a new father, I am astounded at the rate of technology adoption: seeing a two-year-old with an iPad is commonplace! However, as I researched the skills needed to prepare my son for the future, I found that they were the same tools I need to succeed: social skills.
Whys is a culmination of my experience with technology and my new role as a father, with the goal of helping parents do what I’m doing: preparing children for the future.
