Confident Parents, Confident Kids author Jennifer Miller has written the first blog article for a brand new video game being developed by gaming pioneer Trip Hawkins (founder of Electronic Arts) and Chief Learning Officer and Co-founder Jessica Berlinski formerly of GameDesk and Character Counts. Slated for launching in late January, this game entitled “If…” will teach social and emotional skills through cat and dog avatars. Children will be encouraged to practice the skills their characters are learning such as deep breathing when they are frustrated or angry. Check out the full article, “The Time Has Come for If…” about this new adventure series.
