WHY BREAKTHROUGH AND VLINDER?

  • 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.

Discover a reliable plan to support every member of your household

 

We all need a Breakthrough when it comes to our family relationships. Breakthroughs that are done through play are specifically more memorable and habit forming than those through stress and aggravation. What I do is I show families how to integrate new positive habits with young children, replacing old undesirable ones. I do this while also supporting parents in discovering their relationship with stress, anger, team building, values and motivation.

Mission

My kids play this pen and paper game every day. It sure is better than those video games.

My family recently got Vlinder delivered to our home. We took a couple days to open it up. What was really nice is that Jenn followed up with us to help us get started. There is no game companies that I know of that do that type of stuff. It’s like the personal touch you always wanted. So we took the game out of the box and started going through it. We spent a good hour to ninety minutes becoming oriented with the rules and how it works. My children started playing right away and they have been playing every day since. We are at the point now where we are customizing some of the game tasks specifically for our family needs.

My children really like the point system. It’s an absolute hit. My son only got nine points so he ran around the house doing chores so he could get up to twelve and get a reward.

The real genius of the Breakthrough game is how it rewards points to simple chores that parents want their kids to do every day and that includes positive behavior.

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.

My Kid is a Liar

I can still remember the look on my child’s face when he got caught in his first lie. It was the perfect mixture of defiance and embarrassment with neither behavior wanting to make an appearance.
