About Mightier: Mightier is a video game program that teaches kids emotional regulation through play. Mightier was developed and tested at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School to give kids a safe place to practice emotional regulation, develop coping skills, and build the emotional muscle memory they need to help respond to life’s challenges. Many families have found Mightier beneficial when long-term therapy and/or medication hasn’t worked for their family. Video games meet kids “where they are”.
