Will a Calendar Help my Family?

Life is complicated and sometimes scary to kids, especially when things change.

To us, it can look like:

Anytime one of us leaves, he screams like he's being murdered. I don't know what to do.

When I suggest going somewhere, even to do something fun, she immediately refuses. Ever since we moved it's like she is afraid to leave the house.

My cup is empty & I'm exhausted. He's literally hitting me and calling me a mean mommy every time I say no. Maybe we need a therapist.

For kids, it FEELS like they have no idea what's going on and when, they have zero control over what happens to them, and they only way they can express it is...highly unpleasant to us parents.

The good news is that these problems often have a very simple solution: Showing kids what to expect with a visual calendar. This gives them a sense of power during a time when they feel totally out of control, leading to a sense of safety and security that's proven to help them cope with anxiety and stress.

"This magnetic calendar has changed the way I parent! It's helped me explain things in a different way to my son, and I'm noticing he's much less anxious." - Josie M.

Recommended by therapists, social workers, teachers, and school counselors, Mighty + Bright's kits make a huge difference in the lives of kids who are struggling with changes big and small.

How it Works

Kids feel safest when they know what to expect. A weekly calendar helps kids to understand their lives more clearly — and having a calendar of their own empowers them. See, life happens to kids — but when they know the plans and feel like they've had a say in some of it, they don't need to struggle for power every day.

Set up a weekly time — our family does Sundays before dinner — to go through the follow week's activities. Together, have your child rearrange the week's magnets, adding stickers to magnets for new activities and placing them on the correct day.

This habit will be a game changer: not only because you're showing your kids what to expect every day, but also because this time gives kids an opportunity to ask questions, voice concerns, and connect with you.

Works perfectly with our books to explain difficult concepts to kids, like general change, divorce, cancer (either their own diagnosis or that of a parent or sibling).

About Our Charts

Mighty + Bright's charts are sturdy, fully magnetic, dry erase, and designed to be easily taken on and off, over and over. This makes weekly planning easy to do from a dining table, couch, or hospital bed.

Using our included wall set, you can hang your chart anywhere in your house, and never worry about damaging your walls.

Not everyone has a magnetic fridge, and some charts are better suited for other locations, like:
  • near a child's bedroom
  • in the bathroom for morning and evening routines
  • on a kitchen wall
  • near backpacks in a mud room
  • on the back of a door

Exactly what we needed

When I found out I would need to get radiation treatment, I searched for tools to help explain it to my 7-years-old. First we started with the routine daily chart, then the calendar for him. Then we read Cancer Party (I don’t have cancer but wanted something that explained radiation, so I tried very hard to describe it distinctly). The next day, I set up my calendar. We have them all in a central location and he has enjoyed planning the weeks and creating the daily chart routines.

This was a tremendous help to our family and has/will give me support in knowing my child can feel safe with this change in our life.

Great way to connect with my girls!

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!

So helpful!!

I pair the visual calendar with the Mr. Chazz set and it’s been so helpful for my neurodivergent son to know what to expect. School starts soon, and I know it’ll be a game changer for us! Love this set so much!!

thoughtfully designed and hugely helpful in difficult times--and every day

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 has brought so much comfort to my little ones. Each morning they check to see what the day (or days ahead) will hold. We also purchased some sports/fun activities buttons to give them things to look forward to, as well. Thank you for creating such an incredible product.
