Hi! I'm Kavin, dad of two kids, and founder of KidCoach. 👋
Over the past few years I’ve written 50+ articles, appeared on 20+ podcast shows and been featured in 10+ newspapers – including a feature by the BBC.
Each time I was asked to talk about why conversations with kids matter, what questions build skills kids need and how to get into good conversational routines at home.
After a while I felt I should write down all those pieces, in a simple but structured way, to help many more parents like you.
So I did and it's available now on Amazon!
Here's what you will discover inside!
🔹 The 12 skills your kids need but won’t get taught at school.
🔹 Why asking “how was school today?” never works and how to come up with much better questions to feed your child’s curiosity.
🔹 Dialogues from dozens of chats I’ve had with various kids so you can see how different children respond to these question.
🔹 Over 100 quirky questions for your kids you can use at the dinner table, in the car or on the school run.
🔹 Why some families fail to get into good conversations despite the best of intentions and how you can avoid that.
🔹 Exclusive insights from seven education and parenting experts, including a foreword from Ian Gilbert (Author of Thunks).
