Hello Coaches, counselors, and educators,
Kids are learning their ABCs and 123s…but why aren’t they learning the one thing that has the greatest impact on their happiness, confidence, and success in life?
? Have you ever wondered why some kids have “a good head on their shoulders” while others are easily influenced by peers?
? Have you ever wondered why some kids are focused and goal-oriented while others seem to drift through life?
empower child to be a happy child

Why do some kids struggle?

? Have you ever wondered why some kids have powerful self-esteem while others never feel they are quite “good enough”?
? Have you ever wondered why some “A-students” struggle in the real world while some “C-students” thrive?
? Have you ever wondered why some kids stay connected to their parents while others turn away from them?
? Have you ever wondered how someone like Oprah Winfrey was able to rise from poverty to become one of the most influential women in the world? Or…how an illegal immigrant from Mexico went from picking weeds on a California farm to become a leading brain surgeon at John Hopkins Hospital in Maryland?
The answer is simple…

The one thing that has the greatest impact

on children’s happiness, confidence, and success in life…

…is their mindset!


It’s how they choose to think about themselves and what is possible for their lives.


Just as children weren’t born knowing how to read, write, play piano, or throw a baseball, children weren’t born knowing how to:
  • develop positive self-esteem that doesn’t rise and fall with the ups and downs of life
  • overcome mistakes and failure or manage change
  • make good decisions or handle peer pressure
  • be self-responsible, have self-respect, and live with integrity
  • move through fear and build self-confidence
  • live life with intention and achieve their goals
…and they certainly weren’t born knowing how their mind works!
But these are skills that must be taught and here’s why…
All kids develop a mindset…
the question is, where is it coming from?
If kids aren’t proactively taught how to develop a mindset based on empowerment, it will evolve on its own as a result of exposure from the media, influence from their peers, and how they decide to interpret their life experiences.

This often leads to stressed out kids – something none of us want for the kids in our community!
I know something about this because I was definitely a stressed out kid – by the time I hit college, so much of my self-esteem was wrapped up in what I accomplished that I was quite the workaholic – I didn’t have any balance in my life.
It wasn’t until after college and I discovered the field of personal development that I learned how to separate my achievements from who I was. And I learned how to bring balance and joy into my life. Achievement was still important, but it didn’t rule me and it didn’t define me.
Each time I learned a new “mindset” skill, I remember thinking to myself…
Why didn’t I learn this when I was a kid?
I would have been so much happier and less stressed out.

Well I made a vow that when I became a parent…

my kids would learn these skills.

Over the years I became an expert in personal development, coaching, and mindset work…And when I did become a Mom, I started writing short stories to help my kids learn the skill.
You see…I knew that no matter how much I loved my kids, or how much time I spent with them, I couldn’t give them self-esteem, I couldn’t give them self-confidence, and I couldn’t give them success in life…
But what I could do is help them develop it in themselves.
I realized that these skills were something that all kids deserved to learn so I created The Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching Program for Kids™ – a mentoring curriculum that helps kids learn how to handle the ups and downs of growing up without getting down on themselves; to think for themselves and make good decisions; and to go for their dreams and make them happen.

And now you can start using this fun and engaging curriculum in your practice!
When I first started Adventures in Wisdom, we were focused on getting the program into the hands of parents so they could use it with their own kids.
But what we found was that coaches and counselors were coming to us wanting to use the program in their own business – that’s why we created the WISDOM Coach™ Certification Program.  To help coaches, counselors, and educators to expand your business and bring coaching skills to the youth in your community.
Parents and businesses around the world are using Adventure in Wisdom to empower kids!

What makes us different?
Adventures in Wisdom™ is different than any other certification program out there.  This curriculum is not about how to discipline kids…it’s about how to empower kids to develop powerful thinking skills – mindset skills – that will enable them to handle the ups and downs of growing up so they don’t get down on themselves or give up on themselves when things don’t go their way.
Just like you empower and support your adult clients…
…you will empower and support kids in learning a powerful way of thinking so that they are confident and prepared to choose the right path in life, to handle anything that comes their way, and to go for their dreams.
With our proven 5-step WISDOM System for Coaching Kids…
you will learn EXACTLY how to teach kids the thinking skills for creating happiness, for creating confidence, and creating success in their lives…
All you need to do is share fun short stories and activities with the kids while wrapping your coaching or counseling skills throughout the process.
Coach - man and boy
You see, one of the things that makes Adventures in Wisdom™ so unique is that each skill is taught through a fun short story by Wyatt the Wise Wizard.
27 stories in all!

Wyatt the Wise Wizard teaches skills through 27 fun short stories!

Stories are a great way to teach these concepts because children remember stories – they are fun, engaging, and a non-threatening way to help kids learn how to navigate life.
Through the stories, kids see how the skills are used to solve real-life problems that they might face at school, with their friends, or at home. 
Let’s talk about the skills you will help kids develop!
Our system is called “The WISDOM System for Mentoring Kids™”
It uses skill books from The Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching Program for Kids™ to systematically step kids through 6 areas of development.
W.I.S.D.O.M. is actually an acronym
for what kids will learn with the curriculum…
Let’s look at each step in more detail…

I started out using Adventures in Wisdom a couple of years ago with my daughter who loved the program. Sometimes we would read up to 5 stories per day – she just couldn’t get enough. I immediately noticed a positive change in her and I even noticed her teaching other kids the skills she’d learned.
I began to think what a wonderful idea it would be to coach other kids so I got my certification.Michelle Jacobs It was a very easy process and I found the support along the way to be of great value. The kids absolutely love this program – it’s super fun and engaging. It gets them to really think about the skills they are learning.
For me as a coach, the coaching materials are easy to use and the support that you get is great.
I feel honored to be a part of The Adventures in Wisdom team and super excited to be able to coach kids and to pass on these wonderful skills.

the mistakes kids make can haunt them…

for the rest of their lives.

As a teacher and school administrator, I spent 20 years helping children who struggled in school. Some were special needs students and others were regular education students.
They all had one thing in common which kept them from excelling, they had a very limited Felix Garcia 140x165self-concept of themselves and their abilities, and they were not able to separate themselves from failure.  I am amazed at the Adventures in Wisdom Curriculum.
 It can be used to prepare children for a bright future regardless of what they desire to be in life, while giving them the skills to deal with everyday problems.
 I wish that I would have had this program when I was a teacher.
I strongly believe that it can be used in schools, as well as with families, to help support children overcome their fears, be courageous, and help them be the best they can be.

Sonja Koch“As an educator of youth and a purveyor of life skills, I am always looking for interesting and diverse ways to introduce life’s lessons to children. I am a firm believer in teaching or training through prevention rather than correction. When I saw the Adventures in Wisdom stories and curriculum, I knew this was something I wanted to pursue and incorporate into my own after school programs and summer camps and here at Horses of the Sun.
There is no better gift that we can give to children than the skills to develop their full human potential.

Finding Adventures in Wisdom™ has been a blessing to my business. I met Renaye as I was launching my business and was looking for Law of Attraction and mindset curriculum for elementary age girls.
What I found in Adventures in Wisdom was the total package – comprehensive curriculum, activities, marketing materials and coach certification all rolled into one high quality program.
Candace Avila 130 x 165 It has made launching my classes and workshops much easier and faster than doing it (creating curriculum) all on my own. Plus, the coaching certification provides additional credibility that parents and school administrators love.
I highly recommend becoming an certified WISDOM Coach™ to anyone who wants to empower children or teach Adventures in Wisdom. It is by far the best program of its kind.

With your certification you will receive a set of templates for creating 5 different coaching packages!
  • You can use the curriculum for “spot coaching” during your sessions (For example, if a child is dealing with a particular challenge, just pull out the story or stories that can help you work with the child that day).
With your certification you will receive a document that has a list of common challenges that kids face and a recommendation on which skill books to use to “spot coach” around those issues.
2. Second...each skill book has a Mentor’s Guide and a Children’s Guide
