Enjoy a short description of Vlinder, a game that manages behavior, and what children have to say about it.

Learn By Doing

Having knowledge is important. Being able to draw on experiences and apply that knowledge, also important. Breakthrough, LLC draws on a the practice of doing rather than explaining to our children. In fact once you  have completed working with our product you have successfully worked on Communication, Team Building, Stress and Anger Management, Organization and so much more.



Breakthrough’s Mission

Parenting with Intention. Everything that works doesn’t have to come with a big price tag. 

Our mission is to offer families tools they need to create an environment of structure and support with the reinforcement that encourages growth.


  • Strengthen your child’s social and emotional resilience through play!

  • Make big changes in your home, without big resistance.

  • Use game-like tactics to teach long-term life lessons.

  • Experience everyday responsibilities while practicing to communicate, cooperate and connect.

Vlinder is more than just a game – it is a game changer.  It is an influential tool that brings out your child’s strengths and heads-off difficulties.  This powerful project gives your child a better opportunity to grow and creates a home environment of which they can be proud.

-Jennifer Smit

Breakthrough, LLc and Vlinder

Simply put it’s positive reinforcement.

Sometimes you give your child a smile which is rewarding enough. That’s how simple this game is. You get to use what you’ve learned along the way to help reinforce new behaviors that you want your child to hold on to. 

Operant Learning

Operant Conditioning is when your child learns a lesson because they learned an association between a behavior and a reward or consequence.  

Reward vs Bribery

I’ve written an entire blog on this subject. In short…a bribe is when you are offering payment at the moment to stop a behavior. No planning and no conversation. A reward is an arrangement that is discussed prior to any situation and is agreed upon. Especially with regards to playing Vlinder, this subject is non-negotiable.

Bummer Cards

Bummer cards are cards placed in the pack to be funny. They can be taken out at any time if the family does not feel that they serve a purpose.

Interactive Task Sheet

There are two different types of Task Sheets. One that you can make on your own, online. That is the Interactive Task Sheet. There is also one that is premade.


Consultations are available. They vary in price but normally run about $40/hour. Consultations are by appointment only.

Understand the Background of Immediate Reward Now

How many times have you promised something to your kids only to let time get the better of you and either forget or procrastinate? It happens to the best of us but it is one of the worst things you can do when utilizing a positive reinforcement model.

Who Said Anything About Heros?

So, when my 10-year-old casually asked me to watch something funny from his favorite you-tuber the next time, you better bet I was right by his side. I wasn’t there to judge what he thought was funny. I was there as a spectator for what was going on around the game.
