Between managing meltdowns over untied shoes,
finding soggy goldfish crackers between the couch cushions,
and navigating the never-ending guilt,
we're overwhelmed and exhausted,
...and we feel like we're drowning as parents.
We believe you don't have to be a superhero to be an incredible parent.
That's why we've shifted the way we think about skill-building, softened the expectations on parents, and taken the best practices and research-backed frameworks from industry leading psychologists, and distilled them down for parents to use in their everyday lives.
Here's how it works:
Reduce unnecessary stress by creating the structure that works for each of your kids.
From Problem-Solving to Room Cleaning, we found a way to make learning fun and easy.
The foundation for positive mental health is knowing what to expect (and what's expected of us). But kids need that explained visually.
Kids need visuals to understand things - they can't keep information in their heads the way adults can.
A weekly calendar helps them make sense of the world around them, relieving underlying anxiety, reducing the number of questions they ask, and giving them confidence to navigate life with less stress.
Choose from a variety of sets that fit your child's needs — from everyday activities to more complicated custody schedules or health and developmental issues.
The research is solid — routines are one of the most powerful ways to reduce stress, especially when life is constantly changing.
You don't have to make a move to a new city to experience change. For kids, life is constantly changing, which is why they melt down when asked to stop an activity and move to a new one.
Creating a daily visual routine gives kids a sense of power in a world where they feel like they're constantly being bossed around — reducing power struggles, improving behavior, and making them feel proud.

My daughter is loving this calendar, and all of the stickers. She now has a visual for her schedule, and loves going over to the fridge and confirming where she will be each night. Thank you for this product. It makes an impossible situation, feel a little bit easier for all of us.
We love our daily calendar! My three-year-old chose which stickers she wanted on the magnets. Then she chooses what tasks she wants to do next. It takes away a lot of the frustration with trying to keep her on task. Of course, we still struggle with staying focused on completing ALL of the morning and evening tasks. But I find myself not repeating things 800 times a day, which helps my sanity a lot.
Thank you for making this product!
I love my three-year-old but I don’t love the feeling of losing my mind during morning and evening routines. One can only say “brush your teeth” 8,000 times before snapping.
The daily routine schedule and magnets made her so much more cooperative. She picked the stickers she wanted to use on the magnets. She selects what she wants to do next. Life is easier!
Thank you, Mighty and Bright, for giving me some sanity back!
This schedule board has brought peace where there was madness. I love that my son will run to look at the pictures and see what's next instead of me having to remind him every step of the way and have him try to make his own path. Now we do our weekly planning and there's limited fuss after that!
This is so perfect for my 3 year old. We've only been using for a week and she is already able to "check the calendar" and figure out what she needs to do next in her day to get ready to go somewhere or ready for bed. Even when it's an activity she really wants to go to it's a constant battle to get her ready to get out the door. This eliminates so much of that. Love this collaboration! This product will be used for many years in our home.
We love the connection calendar. Each week we sit down together to map out the week. It has really helped our family connect on a consistent basis and our girls absolutely love it!
I'm beyond impressed with the research and care that went into designing Mighty and Bright's products. My kiddo is only 2.5 and a bit too young to make the most of the calendar but he loves the books and putting together and playing with the magnetic buttons has still been a great way for us to talk through all the changes happening at home and identify the types of activities that bring us all joy. I'm hoping to keep using this product long after treatment to help establish and maintain healthy routines--and I've been recommending the products to parents I meet in my cancer support group.
This calendar is perfect for my 7 yo, who needs help with daily reminders. He has ADHD and this visual chart helps him and me so I don’t have to repeat myself
The consistency and predictability of knowing what is coming next helps our days run so much smoother. We go over it and adjust the buttons each morning together. We ordered the My Morning/My Night board. We plan to order a few more buttons! Our kids are 3 and 5.
My son was always asking me where he was going when we would wake up in the morning. Now he can look at this fun calendar and know. The magnets are really fun and the calendar is only a week which is perfect for my four year old. I wanted to adjust my order and the response time was very quick. They worked with me to make sure I was able to get the magnets I wanted. Perfect coparenting calendar!
We bought the Separation + Divorce calendar for our kids (ages 4 and 9) and it has turned out to be such a big help! This has immensely helped our 4 year old not only learn the days of the week, but understand which are the transition days, which has helped her feel calmer and more secure knowing what’s ahead for each day. Our 9 year old knows the days of the week, but sometimes the days roll by without him noticing, so this calendar has been great for keeping him on track without any surprises. We also love using the event magnets to remind them about special occasions and chore days.
Aside from how much we love the calendar, the customer service has been above and beyond! Even during the pandemic, the calendars and magnets shipped out incredibly fast, and I received great tracking and delivery notices along the way. I love how they also have relevant event magnets such as “zoom calls” and “online school.” I’ve really had such a great experience and highly recommend this calendar if you have young kids going through split custody.
This calendar puts the fun in functional! My kids and I use it to keep on track and prevent any confusion about which parent they will be with on a given day. It also helps them plan for events and makes them feel engaged in the scheduling and events. It's a life saver for my family. I got my ex-wife one as well and it helps keep us in sync on the various appointments and events so that we don't have to constantly remind each other.
Significantly reduced our son's anxiety and confusion for going between two homes. Thank you!!
Small family owned business who really care about what you think and listen to you! Highly recommend!
Cute and fun and delivery was fast
