Online Game Teaches Kids To Deal With Bullying [Headlines]
Herotopia is a virtual community where kids learn the values of getting along in a game setting that can also be applied to their lives.
The brainchild of husband and wife team, Wade and Caryn Teman, “Herotopia” is a massively multiplayer online game where kids learn kindness, good behavior, how to deal with bullies and global responsibility by simply playing this mission-filled game. These lofty goals are met because this is a carefully thought out online world for kids ages 6 to 12. The game's adviser, Dr. Joel Haber, a.k.a. “The Bully Coach,” even writes a Bully Blog that is featured on the site. Jinny Gudmundsen/USA Today.
