Art of Parenting
Youth care and education is the focus area for the Horizon organisation, the head office is located in Rotterdam. The institution offers counseling, treatments and schooling programs for children and families that are experiencing complex problems because of emotional disturbances or disorders.
Throughout the years Horizon developed itself as an expert on how to develop more effective behavior and on increasing the skills of those who treat, teach or are parenting children (and families) with these specific problems. The institution likes to share its knowledge and experience in ways that are also accessible to the general public.
To do so Maxcode realised a mobile game, based on the fundamentals of parenting. In the game a parent prevents bad influences from a third person by guiding an imaginary child. The game is played during training sessions with pedagogical experts, but can also be used as tool for discussing situations between parents and between parent and child. The game is available for Apple iOS and Google Android.
