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 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, this is not therapy or counselling and I am not qualified to diagnose your child's mental health issues.
Although life coaching and counseling may have similarities, such as asking the important questions, listening, and finding patterns in people’s lives, they are not the same thing.
Counseling is designed to help those with more serious issues lead a more normal, productive life or to get back on track. These types of issues might include anxiety, depression, OCDs, moving past neglect/abuse, or going through a personal crisis at home (such as an illness or divorce).
Life coaching for kids is about mindset training. Partnering with kids in a thought-provoking and creative process to help kids develop mindset skills to own their magnificence go for it in life, and reach their fullest potential.

ISN'T THIS SUPPOSED TO BE TAUGHT BY US, THE PARENTS?

People often confuse "life coaching for kids"and parenting. Life coaching goes beyond the traditional parenting roles of moral and character development, and it goes beyond learning how to treat others and learning how to behave. In fact, what kids learn in my program, 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.”

MY CHILD DOESN’T HAVE A PROBLEM…IS LIFE COACHING FOR HIM?

Life coaching 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 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, the Wisdom Power Kids sessions are simply child enrichment classes.

WHAT WILL MY KIDS LEARN?

Through WISDOM Coaching, kids 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”. Through WISDOM Coaching kids 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 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.
