How I Use It
This app is wonderful for helping calm a child. The visual representation of the glitter clearing is a great analogy to the child's mind clearing and allowing them to think and make good choices. Also the animated fish expanding and shrinking was an effective way to prompt "mindful breathing".
My Take
I really liked how easy this app was for the children to navigate on their own. The visual representation of the mind clearing and taking mindful breaths were very effective in helping children to calm down. Before you shake the glitter the fish asks you what you're feeling and how intensly. I would have liked for there to have been a way for the app to track the responses to this and when/how often it is being used.
