Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES MIGHTIER WORK?
Mightier kids wear a heart rate monitor. As their heart rate rises, the games present even more challenges. This is part of the science behind Mightier. We elevate your child’s awareness of their emotions AND provide them with the skills to lower their stress during play. Kids begin to realize that they have always had this superpower and start using it in real-life situations.
WHAT AGES IS MIGHTIER DESIGNED FOR?
Mightier games are tailored for kids 6-12, but many families have had success with older and younger children.

WHAT ABOUT ME? CAN I USE MIGHTIER TOO?
We encourage parents, caregivers, and siblings to play Mightier and to participate in the shared activities that are included in the Mightier program. While this isn’t necessary for Mightier to help your child, we have found that family involvement and support is very helpful for Mightier kids. Besides, you might get a little Mightier along the way yourself.
