Welcome to K’BRO

WONDERING IF YOU’RE DOING OK? FIND OUT BY PLAYING K’BRO!

K’Bro is an emotional resiliency app that is addictingly fun to play while developing skills to manage the challenges kids face today. As you play the “Am I OK?” game and use other features in the app, K’Bro anonymously captures data about your emotional state. K’Bro lets you know when you’re doing OK but also lets you now when something is not quite right.

Part game/part anonymous sharing/part knowledgebase, K’Bro is a safe place to share your thoughts and emotions and get advice on how to deal with life’s challenges while getting validation on how well you’re doing through the “Am I OK?” index.

The more you share in the app, the smarter the app gets about how you’re doing. Every time you play you’ll get an Am I OK? score that tells you how you’re doing. If you’re doing great, that’s great! If you’re not doing OK, K’Bro offers suggestions for how to help you feel better.

OUR features

K’Bro is a fun game and safe place for you to express what you’re feeling. Growing up can be tough especially when you might not be sure who to turn to for emotional guidance. Luckily, K’Bro is here to help! With our useful features, you will have access to:

Am I OK?

When you play the Am I OK game and name your emotions it helps your practice identifying what you’re feeling. K’Bro asks you to name 4 emotions out of 12 (6 positive options and 6 negative options) for four categories in your life: School, Family Life, Social Life and Everything Else. This helps K’Bro pinpoint which aspect of your life may be causing you problems and how you’re doing overall. This results in an Am I OK? score every time you play.

Deal with it!

Deal With It! is the place where you will find advice on how to maneuver through various life questions or ask questions of your Tribe. My Tribe is an anonymous online community where you can feel safe sharing your experiences and feelings as well as supporting others. My Tribe has unique anonymous sharing sites for Middle school and High school age groups so be sure to enter the correct age when you sign up. Kids in elementary school get all the benefits of K’Bro but do not have access to My Tribe.

Speak Up!

Speak Up is the place where you can practice how to advocate for yourself. You can get feedback on how best to say something from those in your tribe, or simply share to get something off your chest. Your My Tribe peers can provide feedback by rating your comments “Helpful” or “Hurtful” to help you find the best way to provide feedback to someone. You can even text or email what you shared directly to that person.

What’s Up?

What’s Up? is the feature that allows you to share the best stuff in your life to your journal or post on “My Tribe.” Each day you’ll be asked three questions to highlight what’s going right in your life. If you have a “not so OK day” on the index, you’ll be reminded of all the stuff that’s going right to help give you the emotional boost you need to start to feel better.

PARENTS SAY:
Kids need avenues to freely express themselves without being judged or supervised by a parent. It sounds like this would be a great vehicle for kids to be honest with themselves and gain better self- awareness.

It would be good for my child to be more aware of his feelings and options and to get support from sources other than his parents.

Teens can be op-positional, especially if the recommendation is coming from their parent. I see real benefits of my child playing K’Bro.
