Boss Brain teaches kids (aged 5-10) how to be the manager and director of their own emotions and behaviours. Over 10 weeks, kids will learn basic education about how the brain and nervous system work, gain strategies to down regulate big emotions and behaviours and get to practice self-regulation strategies using the exciting bio-technology game Mightier paired with mindfulness practice and brain education.

- Become easily bossed around by big emotions
- Get overwhelmed easily
- Tend to withdraw
