Developing Resilience

Package Details

Building resilience means helping kids learn how to handle the tough stuff in life – making mistakes, experiencing disappointments or failures, or facing changes in their lives. With this coaching package, kids learn how to get back up again after falling down so that mistakes, disappointments and failures, or changes don’t keep them from their dreams.
I have a 5-session package that will help kids build resilience:

[Skill book 1]
What kids accomplish in life is shaped by what kids believe about themselves ─ both on the conscious level and on the subconscious level. When kids learn how to uncover negative beliefs and then shift them to supportive beliefs, they become empowered to handle disappointments without giving up on themselves. I share the story Who’s Flying Your Plane and help kids understand how their mind shapes their world and what they can do to shape their mind. We also have a fun paper airplane activity that we do to reinforce the learning.

[Skill book 2]
Next, we talk about belief systems. Belief systems shape what kids see as possible for their lives. Kids who have faced disappointments or failure often develop an “I’m not good enough” or an “I can’t do it” attitude. Learning how to develop a belief system based on possibilities will help kids bust outside of their comfort zone, create courage, and go for it in life – even if they’ve stumbled in the past. I share the story, Power of Possibility, and help kids learn that they achieve what they believe!

[Skill book 23]
Next, we talk about how to manage mistakes. Kids learn that everyone makes mistakes and that it’s a normal part of life. In this skill book, kids learn that mistakes are opportunities to learn and to grow. In this lesson, I share the story The Weight of Mistakes and kids learn the “Five I’s of managing mistakes”. We also have a fun activity that we do to help kids learn how to learn from the mistake and let it go.

[Skill Book 25] Next, kids learn how to move past disappointments and failure. They learn that failure is an event and not who they are. They learn that failure is only a failure if they allow it to keep them from their goals and dreams. I share the story Afraid to Fail Fred and Kids learn how to put failure “in a box” so they can learn from it and move forward in their power. We also have a fun activity where kids get to make their own box for the Put-it-in-a-Box process as a reminder in how to move past disappointments.

[Skill Book 26]
Finally, kids learn how to manage change. They learn that change is a critical part of life and that they cannot create who they want to be by staying where they are. Only by accepting and embracing change can they move forward in their power. I share the story Changes in Paradise and kids learn the three steps for managing change.

How Do I Know if a Life Coach is right for my child?

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 this program, most adults have never learned.
Many children need support in the areas of coping skills, building self-esteem, overcoming shyness, peer pressure, dealing with bullies, and so much more.

Life coaching for kids is about mindset development-it targets the root of the thought patterns that hold kids back.

Kids often get down on themselves or give up on themselves. This crushes their self-esteem and self-confidence.

Life events can “wound” children and most of the time parents don’t even realize it. They might see a shift in their child’s confidence or self-esteem, but they don’t know what happened or what to do about it.
