Children today are experiencing unprecedented rates of social, emotional, and mental health problems. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the mental health crisis among children is so dire that it has become a national emergency (2021). But there is hope. Research has consistently shown that early intervention is key when it comes to positive outcomes for childhood mental health disorders or issues. Put simply and powerfully, how we shape our children early on shapes their future. And no shaping is more powerful than what a child learns and models at home. HeyKiddo is a suite of digital solutions that helps parents, caretakers, and educators anticipate, detect and intervene when mental, social, and/or emotional issues or questions arise to prevent a more significant problem or crisis. HeyKiddo is a lifeline. Literally.
