“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for CWIST. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
For the holidays, CWIST has launched their Kids CWIST For Kids program. This multi-week giving campaign gives children the opportunity to complete learning challenges to give gifts to kids in need.
CWIST [‘kwist’] is a new incentive-based digital platform for children ages 5 – 11 that provides a community for parents and educators to share ideas and find fun kids’ challenges or “cwists” that match the unique learning needs of their children. A cwist can be anything from organizing a community clean-up, researching fun-facts for an upcoming family trip, completing a summer reading list or mastering good manners over time. Children choose parent-approved rewards which can range from a sleepover, day trip, toy or gadget that they have wanted or something completely different and original.
Bryson is fixing to turn seven next month. For some reason lately I have been struggling with him on being nice to his sisters and friends. So when I was exploring CWIST Kids program and saw the option for kindness as a CWIST I knew I had a winner. Not only will it encourage him to be nice to his sisters, but also to a stranger. By him sharing with his sister or helping her clean up the room he will be giving a little boy a toy set. I let him pick the child he wanted to earn a toy for and also let him picked out the toy. I thought by giving him the complete control over what he was earning would encourage him to want to do his CWIST. Boy was I right. I didn’t have to remind him to be nice anymore. He was doing it all on his own. I even heard from his teacher that he was being nicer to his class mates. It was working. Overall, I am very pleased with CWIST. It’s a great program. It teaches your child pride (for completing an activity), but also about charity and helping others out.
Will you be CWISTing and helping a kid out?
