Mightier & Tantrums & Meltdowns
— Mother of 6 year old boy
How Can Video Games Help Reduce Tantrums & Meltdowns?
How did you learn to ride a bike? Practice. Calming skills and emotional regulation are no different, kids just need a safe space to practice skills so they can build the muscle memory needed to call on them when they face real life challenges. The more they are able to build this muscle memory, the fewer tantrums, outbursts and meltdowns they will have.

Clinically Validated Research
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.
