Every parent knows how hard it can be for young children to share their toys, understand their emotions, or be a good friend sometimes.

Meet Allen from The Allen Adventure app. He’s a friendly alien visiting Earth who wants to fit in and make friends but discovers it’s not always that easy.

This fun, interactive app for children age 3 to 8 explores social and emotional skills which are critical when making friends, getting along with others and dealing with difficult situations. It helps young children develop emotional literacy, positive social behaviours and encourages respectful relationships.

Download it today for free from the App Store or Google Play and visit Bullying. No Way! for other fun activities to do with Allen.

Children are watching and experiencing life online from a very early age. It is never too early to talk about online safety. The Allen learns about technology poster introduces 5 rules about sharing devices, appropriate device usage and safe online behaviour.

The Allen Adventure app was developed by Bullying. No Way! with all Australian education authorities working together to create safe and supportive school environments.

Bullying prevention can start in the early childhood years with the helpful guidance of parents, carers and educators.
