Using digital media to boost kids' well-being is what this unique, well-thought-out app aims to do. Consistent use of HappiMe for Young People can help kids learn that a thought is just a thought that can be changed with mindfulness, practice, and a bit of willpower. Some of the British phrases in the Swipe game ("rubbish," for example) may not be relatable for young kids who are unfamiliar with their usage, and most of the support resources are U.K.-based. Still, there's a lot for kids living anywhere to learn and practice.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
