One doesn't always know for sure

The last couple of years, with the pandemic and other challenges, have affected the quality of life for all of us, both children and adults. But how do we know who is having difficulties and do we really know how our closest ones actually are? Fortunately we are living in a society where openness and respect for other peoples' feelings is natural. But we know that people still have trouble «saying it as it is», either it is a colleague, a friend, or our children that has difficulties in their life that they don't necessarily share with others.

Sisom lets children «say it as it is»

Sisom is a communication game designed for children of the age 5-12 years to understand how the child actually are doing. The game is developed in cooperation with scientists and several international studies has been conducted that shows Sisom creates a good foundation for further conversation between children and adults. It has been shown that even though the children seemingly is doing very well, there can sometimes be problems that they hide and don't want to share. This can for example be school related difficulties or things at home.

Go for a boat trip!

Sisom is designed as a boat trip where one can travel to different islands that prompts children with questions about their life accompanied by recognizable animations. The questions address topics that experience shows can lead to negative thoughts and feelings. An example is whether the child gets to play with the others, maybe they are getting teased or bullied without telling anyone, or maybe they are having difficulties speaking up in class.

The good conversation

At the end of the boat trip you will get a nice graphical report that shows what the child answered on the different questions that is easy to go through with the child. You will also be given concrete answers that later can be used in conversations with the school if it turns out the child is having more difficulties than you were aware of.
