The Grump Meter (www.thegrumpmeter.com) is a tool for kids, parents, teachers, school counselors, and others to help regulate moods and help prevent angry, self-destructive, and other harmful or dangerous behaviors--ranging from children’s temper tantrums to suicide. The Grump Meter itself is a kind of ladder with colored squares; people point to it to identify the intensity of their feelings or moods. Our Grump Meter projects in schools are focusing on helping kids create awareness of their feelings and moods, and regulating themselves so that they can have calmer and more successful experiences at school and home. Kids and parents say the Grump Meter changes their lives. They like carrying it with them. They text each other about the color they’re on. All this feedback suggests that people would like and use a Grump Meter app.
Anyone interested in working on the app can contact me directly at the email listed below. I'll be eager to hear from people.
