What is Mightier?

Mightier is a game system that provides a fun way for kids to practice managing their emotions. The games are grounded in practice and routine, where children learn to calm down when reacting to stressors. Over time and continuous practice, kids slowly retrain their brain and body to respond in a new way to stressors automatically.

How Does Mightier Work?

Mightier has created a fun environment where children play video games to practice cooling down/ calming down or “taking pause.”

Kids wear a heart rate monitor while they play, which allows them to see their emotions and connect with them directly.  As they play, children react to their heart rate.  As their heart rates go up, the Mightier game gets harder to play and they practice how to bring their heart rate down (take a pause) in order to earn rewards in the games.

Over time and routine practice (3 times a week for 15-20 minutes at a time, for 90 days), the cool downs (“pauses”) will become automatic even when kids face real world challenges. We call these “Mightier Moments”, the subtle “pause” or breath a child takes in social situations before getting upset so that their emotional reacgtions are more measured.

Who is Mightier for?

Mightier helps children (ages 6 – 12) who struggle with their emotions. This includes kids who have a tough time with tantrums, anger/aggression, irritability, feelings of frustration, anxiety, or even a diagnosis like ADHD, ODD and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

NOTE: We do have kids outside of the 6-12 age range who have greatly benefited from the program. With our 90 day guarantee, you can always try Mightier with your family and return the kit if you find that it isn’t a good fit.

THE GIZMO

The Gizmo shows players the connection between their heart rate and how they feel. The Gizmo becomes the player’s tool to develop self-regulation skills for successful game play. Clicking on the Gizmo pauses the game and allows the player time to regulate before continuing.

DR DRAGON

Dr. Dragon teaches your child emotional management skills. During play, Dr. Dragon guides players to practice the calming strategy of their choice, which can be a Mightier strategy or something they invented on their own (petting the dog, closing their eyes, holding a stuffed animal).

LAVALINGS

These are the creatures that react to emotions and an increasing heart rate. When a player goes into the Red, the Lavalings will try to distract the player by making the game more diff cult to play. When the Gizmo is used to cool down a Lavaling, they will change form and can be collected in their cool state.

GETTING IN THE RED

Experiencing a heightened heart rate and the emotions connected to it. When your child’s heart rate starts to rise, this can indicate that your child has become anxious, excited, frustrated or angry.

GETTING IN THE BLUE

Cooling down after being out of the blue zone. This is an indicator that your child has been able to successfully recover from a high heart rate. Parents often use this term to describe a nice calming down moment.

CALMING STRATEGIES

Dr. Dragon prompts 4 different strategies that kids use to bring their heart rate down: Deep breathing, Crossing the Midline, Progressive Muscle Relaxation, and Visualization.
