RKNet Studio Announced Suite of Intelligence Games for Fun, Cognitive Skills Development, and Bonding with Grandparents

July 24, 2013

Playing with grandchildren is something every grandparent enjoys. For the child, play is an important part of childhood; developing thinking and reasoning skills, learning social skills and building confidence… and playing with grandchildren keeps grandparents mentally and physically active.

Middletown, NJ (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

Anant Goel, Intelligence games developer at RKNet, stated: “Grandparents provide their grand-kids with love and have their best interests at heart. Grandparents can also encourage a child's healthy development by using their free time to playing intelligence games and reading books to kids. Such dedicated attention can help improve a child's cognitive and learning skills for life.”

For the grandparent and child, playing intelligence games develops family relationships and builds memories. Establishing a bond with grandparents can benefit kids in many ways; because grandparents can be great role models and influences, and they can also provide a sense of cultural heritage and family history.

Despite physical distance or busy schedules, parents can encourage their kids to develop a closer bond with their grandparents. Try these tips:

  •     Visit often: If child's grandparents live nearby, make an effort to carve time out of busy schedules for regular visits.
  •     Stay in touch with technology: Use the telephone, email, Skype, etc., to talk, write, and send pictures of kids to grandparents.
  •     Share Pictures with Kids: Post snapshots of grandparents in your home and point them out to kids often… or keep family pictures in a special photo album.
  •     Share mail: Kids love receiving mail, be it an e-mail or a letter in the mailbox. Encourage communication by having children send e-mail to their grandparents.
  •     Pass the skills: Many grandparents have hobbies or special skills that they'd love to pass on to their grandchildren. Provide kids with the time and tools needed to learn these skills.
  •     Chart a family tree: Both younger and older kids would enjoy learning about their ancestors and relatives. Encourage grandparents to share stories of their families.
  •     Plan safety: Don't forget to make safety a priority, because grandparents may not be accustomed to having young kids in the house.

A traditional activity for grandparents and grandchildren is playing games. Whether it is the latest electronic version of a classic board game, a brand new game, or a simple game of cards, both young and old will enjoy game playing.

Grandparents can encourage a child's healthy development by using their free time to reading books to kids and playing intelligence games like 21 Bridge. Such dedicated attention to playing intelligence games, for example, can help improve a child's cognitive and learning skills for life.

By stimulating brain with several simultaneous activities at any age, children as well as adults can increase their attention span, increase awareness to their surroundings, sharpen their memory, process information quickly, recall and organize their thoughts in a positive and productive manner… all the while playing a competitive game and having fun,” said Anant Goel, producer CEO, RKNet Studios.

Cognitions Bridge games are designed in the labs, but proven in real life. Cognitions Bridge is a suite of six mobile games for brain fitness, cognitive and social skills development that actually entertain, educate, and progressively challenge the user.

“In a game of ‘21 Bridge’ between a grandparent and a youth, for example,” said Goel, “the adult can take the fun opportunity to teach and mentor on the basis of shared interests and nurture the youth's memory skills, math skills, logical thinking and reasoning skills, decision making skills, risk taking and risk aversion skills, and social skills such as turn taking, graceful winning–or loosing–and being patient with other players.

The integration of multiple cognitive skills makes intelligence games fun to play and more beneficial than the so called brain-training games. The current genre of computer brain-training games is very limited in their scope, focus on one cognitive skill at a time, and lack dynamic integration between cognitive skills. It’s like revving your car engine in neutral, while sitting in your driveway going nowhere.

In a game of 21 Bridge, up to 21 cognitive skills are engaged and developed in a competitive play environment with an objective to win… the perfect recipe for accelerated cognitive development in children and adults. The game also provides computer based mentoring, scores game results, grades cognitive skills, and monitors progress.

By connecting the tablet to a TV, the entire family can join-in a competitive game of fun and social engagement.

Intelligence game 21 Bridge can be downloaded on tablets from Google PLAY Store or the Apple APP Store.
