Character Counts, LLC today is proud to announce the release of Creating Character "In Tweens," its second mobile application in a series of apps that are designed to instill good behavior, responsibility, discipline and morals in children and young adults. The first app, which was released in the Fall, entitled Creating Character "in Kids" is for children ages 5-9. The second app, Creating Character "in Tweens" is specifically designed for children ages 10-14.
What is Creating Character "in Tweens"?
"Think of this app as the combination of a chore and behavioral chart delivered on a 21st century mobile platform" said Todd Duplain the company's founder. This app is the tool parents need to establish clear rules and expectations with their children who are in their middle school or early high school years.
Duplain went on to say "As a society, we spend a significant amount of time and resources educating and measuring our youth in academic, athletic and other worthwhile endeavors. However, rarely do we focus much effort on morals, values, personal accountability and overall character building. The Creating Character apps do just that."
Why Creating Character "in Tweens"?
As a father of four boys, Duplain says the first app was created out of necessity for his own family. "After several years of the typical family chaos in our home, my wife and I decided we needed to create a more peaceful environment where our children understood our expectations and started to reflect our value system. So after much trial and error we created a tool that would very clearly and concisely define daily responsibilities & behavioral expectations and measure progress toward those goals. This tool became Creating Character "in Kids" which has significantly improved our children, our home and our own lives."
However, once our older boys were no longer "kids" and wanted to be treated more like teenagers, we created Creating Character "in Tweens" which reflects a whole new set of age appropriate Goals, Rewards and Consequences specifically designed for children in middle school and early high school. The Goals, Rewards and Consequences in the "Tween" app reflect a child's need to have a more mature tool that aligns increased abilities and responsibilities to increased freedom and privileges.
Creating Character "In Tweens" 1.0 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category. Future Creating Character apps will be geared toward Toddlers (Ages 2-5) and Teenagers (15-18).
