How it works
How does Mightier work?
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.

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