Tool for children's secrets

Unfold a paper ball and read the secret worries children have written about the divorce of their parents. Crumple it up again and pick the next paper ball.

Each paper ball contains one sentence starting with “I didn’t dare to say that…”. Children are asked to finish the sentence. Then they can crumple up the paper and drop their secret into the black hole. The simplicity of finishing a sentence invites children to speak about what they usually wouldn’t say – anonymously.

This message web app is born in the context of a Dutch Television series for children with divorced parents ➝ Het Klokhuis over Scheiden. The series was one of the first programmes on TV giving attention to the growing number of children suffering from a divorce by their parents. In addition to the TV documentary series we developed this website to give a voice to the children.
