The Educational and Developmental Benefits of Being in RPF:

No fancy, pictures or distractions, just the straight facts.  

There are many educational and developmental benefits to joining a Club Penguin army, especially RPF.  In fact, several of our soldiers are home schooled and being in RPF is considered part of their education and social skills/communications/language arts and other personal development.  The RPF chat is a vital tool for development and growth of our soldiers to be applied in real life.

Being able to socialize effectively with people around you is a necessary life skill and participating in RPF chat is a great way to observe, learn, and practice the social rules of conversation and relating to other people in an appropriate manner.  Our chat consists of many people from around the world who come together and express themselves, sharing ideas and perspectives.  We learn from one another that it’s ok to be different, think differently, believe differently and that people from other cultures are great people too.  It’s also a place where our soldiers find that they share common interests and beliefs from other kids around the world.  Furthermore, being in our chat breaks down those uncomfortable barriers of not knowing how to act and behave in front of others we do not know or being too shy to talk with others, especially those who are “different” from who we are.  Friendships are established between all people in RPF chat, no matter where you live.

In RPF chat, soldiers learn a lot of information about the world around them, political, recreational, educational, cultural, etc.  They openly discuss various topics and share their views based on the information obtained.  They discuss current issues from around the world as well as historical ones and analyze them for discussion.  Contributing in a healthy debate and discussion is important to everyone’s growth as a person in society and a valuable life skill to have, and through the RPF chat, they learn from others how to engage in debate and discussions.

Now we know that our chat isn’t as safe as Club Penguin is, but that doesn’t mean it’s safe. There are constantly moderators and owners on chat, who ban anyone who will ruin your child’s experience in RPF. Bullying, swearing, advertising unsafe sites, being inappropriate and many other things are all against RPF rules. If anyone breaks a rule they will be banned for a suitable amount of time. As well as these moderators and owners who keep our chat safe, we have a xat.com bot which moderates our chat 24/7. Even if no moderators or owners were on, people would still be punished for breaking the rules, as this bot detects anything against our rules and bans the person who broke it. Our chat isn’t as safe as Club Penguin, but it sure is the next best thing.

Proper grammar is a big benefit of the RPF Chat and Site.  I know so many RPF individuals that joined RPF barely knowing how to spell or type and are now great at spelling, vocabulary, sentence structure, punctuation, and are also speedy in their typing skills.  It’s a fantastic way to practice spelling and punctuation while having fun!  With regards to typing skills, RPF Leader Elmikey types unbelievably fast compared to his classmates in real life.  His classmates type 10-30wpm, but Elmikey has been timed to 138wpm–even faster than his own teacher!   Many RPF soldiers typing and computer skills are more advanced than most of their classmates not in CP armies.   So typing skills are also developed and constantly practiced while participating in RPF.

Reading is extremely important to our soldier’s Language Arts skills too and while participating in our chat, they are constantly reading very quickly to stay in the conversation and learn things they might not know or be in a discussion. Reading the RPF site is also great practice and exposure to proper grammar, sentence structure, vocabulary, essay writing structure, reporting, and others. All while having fun!

Good writing skills are also learned and practiced in RPF.  If the soldier is a high-ranking individual, they have the privilege to post their writings on our site.  Of course, proper grammar and sentence structure as well as essay writing skills are encouraged and practiced.  These posts vary from entertainment to factual reporting, fiction to non fiction and even biographies or autobiographies and involve various types of writing such as narrative, descriptive, exposition, and persuasive writing.

RPF soldiers also learn political structure and protocol.  CP armies are highly organized groups of individuals who work towards a common goal.  Within these groups are complex political systems and ranks.  These can mimic real life and give participants an understanding of political systems world-wide and how they work, the different levels of status and duties/responsibilities of each.  Following the chain of command and following directions are a valuable skill to have in RPF. Without it, we could not function as a solid, strong army.  These skills are valuable in real life for the future as well as kids grow up, become more responsible, get jobs/careers.

RPF also teaches and responsibility.  Within our army we have well established ranks.  Soldiers earn promotions by doing various good things for RPF and work their way up the ladder, just like the corporate ladder in real life.  RPF practices positive reinforcement as a means of rewarding, encouraging, and motivating people to improve themselves and be a better game player, since this is a game.  Soldiers start out as a member at the low ranks and earn their way to being a moderator, or “mod.”  Mods moderate, guard, oversee the chat, making sure everyone is following our child-friendly rules and being appropriate, as well as mediating any arguments that happen and answering questions.  Mods work very hard to earn the rank of owner in the chat.  Owners are the highest you can go, the most prestigious and the have lots of responsibilities as for guarding the chat and making sure things run smoothly and child-friendly.  Both mods and owners have the power to “kick” someone as a warning for breaking a rule, or the option to ban that individual with the consequences being determined by the action involved.  So there’s a lot of observation and decision-making that occurs while being a mod or an owner as well as those ranks reflect the duties you must perform within the army itself.  Of course the higher up you are in rank, the more people look up to you and you must set a good example, be a role model for the other troops, so behavior must be appropriate and kind at all times.

Soldiers also learn and apply leadership qualities in RPF by participating in our chat.  They learn from observing the leaders, how they behave, think, act, and interact, react, organize, discipline, etc.  As soldiers in RPF grow with the army and actively participate over time, they see what qualities they must develop for being a good leader of a group of peers.  These skills are also valuable in real life.

Teamwork is key.  We may not be an athletic team, but we are a close team that works very hard together to attain a common goal, just as a sports team does.  Everyone has their responsibilities and learns to work with various personality types successfully.  They don’t have to like every individual in the army, if fact, they may have conflict with some personality types, but a valuable skill applied to real life is the skill to get along with one another effectively under any circumstance or situation.

RPF is also a great place to learn and express good sportsmanship.  Our soldiers learn that bragging, boasting, or being arrogant is not a valued trait or behavior.  They learn that playing fairly and feeling good about the effort they put into the battle or event, and having fun is what matters.  RPF encourages the practice of good sportsmanship and to get along with one another and be civil when conflicts arise or people don’t get along with one another.  Again, these are favorable life skills.

Being in RPF is not only fun and rewarding, it’s educational with learning the world around us and learning/practicing language arts and socializing skills, leadership skills, as well as responsibility, teamwork, and sportsmanship.  All of these are important life skills that are important for our soldiers to develop for use in real life situations and becoming productive members of our society.

    This is ridiculous I can’t believe you people take this seriously get a life, and really benefits of joining that help with school oh my god you people are obsessed GOD HOW OLD ARE YOU?????? I mean seriously what the heck do you do in meetings???? Club Penguin was meant for having fun, making friends, and learning to be kind to each other and all of these stupid armies turn it into a nerd convention.

    Snaily5 Edit: Dear Sir or Madam, I suggest by the comment that you have made that you join Rebel Penguin Federation and see for yourself the benefits of being in a CP army. IN FACT, our soldiers have increased knowledge of the world around them and better socializing skills than most average kids. IN FACT, kids in CP armies learn logical and analytical thinking skills much higher than the average kid not in armies and learn to effectively communicate with others from various cultural backgrounds and situations, and that is a valuable life skill to develop and utilize. IN FACT, our soldiers have higher reading skills, typing skills, computer skills, grammar skills, and vocabulary than most average kids. IN FACT, our soldiers have a better understanding of political systems around them in real life and different political structures than most kids their age because they are not just studying from a textbook these highly organized systems, they are participating in these systems hands-on and learning how they work first-hand. IN FACT, we have many soldiers that are advanced homeschooled individuals and their parents see this as a valuable supplement to their children’s learning and development. I frankly don’t understand why you are getting your feathers all ruffled over kids learning about the world around them, developing many valuable life long skills, and having a great time establishing friendships with others. If you ask me, these armies are much healthier choice than joining gangs, doing drugs, or participating in other despicable behaviors that will not aid them in becoming successful citizens in our society. I thank you for your comment as we will use it as an example for others to see and further benefit our soldiers on the types of people they may face in society and how to conduct themselves in these situations. Good Day 😀

  33. True, RPF helps making our performances better and helps us in the physical realm. It enhances our abilities, and I’ve seen my benefits over time from when I was a member to what now as to I feel of myself to be. 😀

  34. […] talk about the valuable life lessons armies can teach people. The Rebel Penguin Federation’s Parents Page is solely devoted to making a case for why CP Armies is a good thing. However, from the perspective […]
