How does it work?

  1. How does Mightier work?
  2. Our program was developed at Boston Children’s and Harvard Medical school to help kids learn to better manage their emotions.

    By wearing the heart rate monitor that comes with the kit, your child is connected to the video game world. This allows kids to see their heart rate fluctuate as they face challenges within the game.

    During challenging moments in the game, we walk the player through regulation skills like deep breathing to help them bring their heart rate back down. These moments of practice help build the muscle memory needed to call on regulation skills in real life situations.

    You will also have access to the parent hub to track progress, be invited to join our online community groups, and will be assigned a coach for 1-on-1 clinical support.

  3. What kind of games are available?
  4. Racing, problem solving, pattern recognition, adventure & more! There’s plenty of variety in our 25+ game library, all designed to be fun and engaging in short sessions so your child is working on skills whenever they play. You can see full games details here.

  5. How does coaching work?
  6. Coaches are available for parents to make sure their kids are getting the most out of the program. Parents can talk about what makes their kiddo unique and how they’re doing with the Mightier program. If things are going great, coaches can give advice to maintain that progress and momentum. If kids aren’t picking up on the skills right away, coaches can give tips to get the kids motivated, suggest certain games, come up with a play schedule or a reward system and other techniques to ensure success. You can meet the coaching team here!

What is Mightier for?

  1. What is Mightier’s suggested age range?
  2. Our suggested age range is from 6 to 14. However, we do have kids outside of that range who have greatly benefited from the program. I would suggest looking at our games page and seeing if you think those games would interest your child:

    Some parents even find it helpful to show their child the different game options and get their opinion as well. And with our free 30 day trial, you can always return the kit if you find that it doesn’t end up working out!
