Connecting parents with Dear Doodle’s Kind Kids to provide fun and entertainment for your children (and to give you a break!).
It’s a tough time for parents and kids. For the first time ever, parents are asked to be teachers (every subject from circle time to S.T.E.A.M, Physics to P.E, prep school to after school enrichment) while they are all sheltered-in- place for an indefinite amount of time. That means that parents are also having to be entertainer, housekeeper, chef, gardener, house manager, sanitation patrol, warden, family therapist and activities director 24/7.
And if that weren’t enough, many still have to continue to work, juggling Zoom meetings and project deadlines in between all of that.
Kids miss friends, teachers, playdates, playgrounds, extracurricular activities and really aren’t interested in doing school from home.
That’s where Dear Doodle’s Kind Kids come in! Kind Kids are Stanford students who are ready and able to support parents with virtual playdates, entertainment and tutoring! They are a passionate, qualified group ready to give parents a well-needed and deserved break.
What is this?
Virtual, short-term engagement with your kids in the form of a playdate or tutoring, with a focus on fun activities. Our pre-screened team of Kind Kids will videoconference (Zoom, Google Hangout or Facetime) your house and spend 30-60 minutes with your child. They might chat, play charades, do crafts, play music, read books, exercise, or any number of enriching activities based on what the parent and child need!
