Child's Experience: A guardian or school counselor must create the account for the child. At login, the children are presented with different emotions to select (for example, I am feeling sad, worried, blame, distracted, angry, happy). This selection leads them to a list of exclusive pre-recorded video activities uploaded to the site by a vetted children's grief counselor.
The video content leads them through a creative project which they will watch, create and share. Examples of activities include: a painting exercise to see where the love goes after someone has died, creating a song from the heart, burpees to focus for when you are feeling distracted, and telling a joke to feel better.
The children are encouraged to upload their finished project which lives under the counselor’s main video for other children to view with the purpose of allowing children to see they are not alone in their experience and feelings, further supporting their emotional and social wellbeing through their grief journey. These projects can be viewed and completed at home or during school hours, the flexibility of use is what schools and parents love best about Guardian Lane.
