Breathe, Think, Do with Sesame is designed for parents to use with their child to help teach skills such as problem solving, self-control, planning, and task persistence. In this interactive game, users help a monster solve a number of challenges by helping him learn the skills “Breathe, Think & Do”. Users progress through different levels and activities in which the monster faces different challenges, for example putting on his shoes, or going to school. Users help the monster take deep breaths, think about a plan, and choose from a number of different ways to cope with the problem. Breathe, Think Do with Sesame offers a parent section providing tips for self-soothing and breathing exercises.
