Is It Any Good?

SUPERBETTER says its suggested site exercises are designed to boost physical, mental, social, and emotional resilience in 30 seconds or less, in turn strengthening your stamina, willpower, and focus. That may sound like a lot to accomplish in under a minute -- but when it comes to inventive, easy, feel-good activities and guidance, SuperBetter delivers.

The site is so packed with enthusiastic go-get-'em attitude that you can't help but feel a bit more excited after using it. Treatment of topics that could have a negative connotation, like losing weight, wisely avoid iffy territory by focusing on health aspects, instead of body image issues. And users also learn to identify and conquer negative influences, like shame, by ranking how well they battled it that day and how big an issue it is in their life. Still, even with all that constructive self-confidence instruction, parents may have some concerns about kids spending time on the site. You're supposed to be 13 to register; however, kids can easily get through the process if they aren't. It's also very easy to connect with complete strangers on the forums -- many of whom are adults; and some are not in a particularly positive place. As a result, some forum posts may contain content that's a little too intense for younger users.

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.
