About

The Overall Goal of STYCR

We believe the STYCR app will benefit families for the better. Providing the right tools and training to successfully teach children how to learn the skills of autonomy and independence. Creating a less stressful environment for the parents and children while growing up. And parents can rest easy knowing they will have the right foundations to develop self sufficiency and be confident adults.

How the idea of STYCR came to be....

I am a 31 year old dad with two beautiful little girls which are my world. They are currently 9 and 4 years old. They are beautiful, well mannered children but they have a problem that I'm sure most of the world's parents have faced with their children at some point in their lives. They don't like to do their chores. Or they have be reminded 20 times over just to do one simple task, which is a waste of time and frustrating....This sound like you?

My wife is a teacher and she is used to trying different strategies and techniques to get children to learn. We tried various methods from shouting to talking calmly and everything in between. However, nothing seemed to work because we found ourselves repeating the same thing over and over till we lost our voices. And they still didn't learn or make them move faster to keep up with our busy lives.

Therefore, we came up with a set of responsibilities that each child had to do morning and night during the day. We had written them down and put them in a photo frame and placed it somewhere in the room well seen.

This worked...HOORAY!!

Then I had a stroke...which I lost function to half my body and speech. And a couple of months later I needed brain surgery. So my wife had to look after the girls solo for the next couple of months and was struggling to keep up in this fast paced world. I did the surgery in December 2015 and survived the procedure. While my wife was moving house while I was in hospital, it was a very rushed move, and the responsibilities photo frame was lost in the move. When we were in hospital talking about the girls, I suggested making an app of the list they had for their responsibilities, and it wouldn't get lost. Since they are on the Ipads so much, I figured why not make the list digital and have physical rewards they can see for their achievements. And track those rewards to offer larger rewards if they met achievement milestones.

This is how the app idea was born. Catered to all age children, and tailored by one of the finest teachers I know. Will have everything, from checklists of responsibilities, to reward and achievement systems. Mini games for completing their responsibilities which are also educational for reinforcing good behavior. And also financial tracking for pocket money or allowances so you don't have to worry about it yourself, while penalties for not doing their responsibilities. 

This is an overall idea of what the app will do for your child. The idea at the end of the day, is about teaching them good habits and behaviors. So that they contribute to the family chores by doing their responsibilities. Eventually growing up to be self sufficient person that you can trust will have the skills to look after themselves when they leave home.

Thanks you for your time and contributions.
