…I took a loud, deep breath and said "We need to go back to blue." He did it. He stopped, put the bowl down, and started breathing. Usually it takes being physically held for him to come out of a moment like that.
—Mother of 11 year old boy

 

Clinically-tested and developed since 2010

TESTIMONIAL
Mightier is fun and he enjoys playing the games.
First, Mightier is fun and he enjoys playing the games. Without that, nothing else matters. Giving him a concrete way to see his over excitement and the need to get back into the cool zone offers good lessons and opens the door to have conversations about other times when he is feeling stressed and frustrated in real life.

TESIMONIAL FROM A MOM
We just had a HUGE victory!
“We just had a HUGE victory due to Mightier! Homework has always been a big source of anxiety for Will. Last night he had a difficult math assignment that usually results in tears and tantrums. But this time Will was able to work through his emotions by himself, taking a few deep breaths and trying again - no tears, no tantrums.”

Karen, mom to 12 year-old boy.

Mightier & ODD

Mightier allows kids to practice emotion calming skills during game play. The more kids practice these skills, the more they are able to transfer them to real life situations. For kids with oppositional defiant disorder, Mightier helps them learn to regulate in 3 key areas:
