WHAT IS LIFE COACHING FOR KIDS?
Life coaching for kids is all about empowering kids through mindset development by targeting the root of the thought patterns that hold kids back. Coaching empowers kids with a specific set of skills ( and wisdom) that they can use throughout their childhood, teen years, and for the rest of their lives. I use stories, discussion topics, games, role-playing and experimental activities to help children learn how to use the power of their thoughts to create happiness, confidence and success in their lives. Kids learn how to use the power of their mind and the power of their thoughts to create happiness, confidence, and success in their lives, so that they can take their life, goals, and dreams wherever they want to go.
IS THIS CHILD THERAPY AND ARE YOU QUALIFIED TO DIAGNOSE MY CHILD?
No, I am not qualified to diagnose your child's mental health issues. At Wisdom Power Kids I team up with kids in a thought-provoking and creative process to help them develop mindset skills of their own. This will help them to "go for it" in life, and reach their fullest potential - Wisdom Power Kids sessions are all about mindset training.
ISN'T THIS SUPPOSED TO BE TAUGHT BY US, THE PARENTS?
MY CHILD DOESN’T HAVE A PROBLEM…IS LIFE COACHING FOR HIM?
Wisdom Power Kids isn’t just for kids who are facing challenges or problems. Helping kids learn how to reach their fullest potential is about personal development and personal empowerment so that they will be ready to face any challenge that comes their way. The skills they learn at Wisdom Power Kids can be used for the rest of their lives! Similar to after school classes such as learning a musical instrument or learning a new language, Wisdom Power Kids sessions are simply child enrichment classes.
WHAT WILL MY KIDS LEARN?
People often confuse "life coaching for kids"and parenting. At Wisdom Power Kids I go beyond the traditional parenting roles of moral and character development, how to treat others and learning how to behave. In fact, what kids learn in Wisdom Power Kids sessions, most adults haven't learned! When a parent seeks help with their child it doesn't mean that they are an "ineffective parent" just like a tennis coach helps children develop the skills, confidence and ability to thrive on the tennis court, a life coach for kids helps children develop the skills confidence and ability to thrive in life.”
At Wisdom Power Kids, kids aged 8+ will learn powerful mindset skills and success principals that are critical for creating happiness, confidence, and success in their lives – and the key is how they think about themselves and what is possible for their lives”. Amongst many other topics, kids will learn • How to recognise and shift limiting beliefs that hurt self-esteem and hold them back in life. They also learn how to proactively create supportive belief that will support them in feeling good about themselves, believing in themselves, and in creating a happy fulfilling life. • Kids learn the values of self-leaders such as the power of taking full responsibility for their lives, the importance of living life with integrity, and the importance of treating others with respect while always treating themselves with respect as well. • Kids learn how to think for themselves and make decisions…which helps them develop their inner compass and learn how to stand up to peer pressure. •Kids learn how to develop a Growth Mindset critical for achieving any goal they set their mind to • Kids learn how to feel good about themselves even when things don’t go their way so that their self-esteem is based on the inside-out and not based on who they know, what they do, or what they have. • Kids learn how to believe in themselves even after facing a disappointment so that they can move through their upset and their fear…to create courage and self-confidence. • Kids learn how to live life with intention and with direction, so they don’t drift through life. • Kids learn how to develop a mindset for creating success in their lives including learning how to set and achieve their goals. • Kids learn how to manage change so that they can thrive in the new circumstances.
These are skills that most programs geared for kids do not cover.
OK I AM EXCITED FOR MY KID TO START BUT WHAT DO I TELL THEM??
This is one of the most common questions I get. I always explain it to kids in a way they can understand so I tell them that similar to their Gymnastics or Tennis coach who helps them stretch their muscles, and get them to move into positions that they never believed that they could... I do the same - only with their minds. I will send both parents and child an Intake Form to fill in so they can start thinking about what they want to get out of the Wisdom Power Kids sessions.
WILL I BE INVOLVED AND KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IN MY KID'S SESSIONS?
I SEE YOU HAVE OVER 40 SESSIONS - AM I EXPECTED TO SIGN UP FOR ALL 40?
No, not at all! I will always schedule a call with parents before I start working with a child where we can discuss any issues or challenges the child may be facing or areas and topics that you think are most important and then I will create a tailor-made programme for them, focusing on the topics that are most pressing. I usually suggest to start with 10 sessions and then take it from there.
Yes, absolutely. This is part of the service that I provide at Wisdom Power Kids. After every session, if you are available, I welcome you to come and join us for a 5 minute summary where you child can explain to you what they have learned giving you a chance to ask any questions too. If you are not picking up, or don't have time (believe me, I get it!) I will always send an email summary after every session explaining WHAT we have learned and WHY we have learned it. I also include a "Parent Coaching" section that includes any steps that you as a parent can take to help your child along, including topics of discussion, questions and activity ideas to encourage further learning. The more you and your kid can integrate their learning into their everyday life, the more benefit they will get from the sessions.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me as I am always more than happy to help.
