Why Didn’t I Learn This as a Child?

Kids spend thousands of hours learning their ABCs and 123s, but most never learn the essential skills they need to handle the ups and downs of growing up!

As a coach, you’ve seen the impact of limiting beliefs in your adult clients.

You Can Help Kids Use the Power of their Thoughts to…

  • Handle the ups and downs of growing up, without getting down on themselves or giving up on themselves

  • Create happiness and success regardless of their circumstances

  • Think for themselves and make good decisions

  • Go for their dreams and make them happen

“Stories really Velcro the message to the brain…” 

“I feel grateful that you’re doing the work you’re doing. It’s really, really important.”

Success Stories – How Life Coaching Helps Kids

life coaching for kids builds confidence

In the interview, Renaye shared a story about Tyler working with a WISDOM Coach to build his self-confidence and make friends. Here’s a photo of Tyler on his stretch activity!

  • 10-year-old Michael had a lot of anger and when he fought with his siblings he said, “I don’t want to be here.” The work he did with WISDOM Coach®, Inna transformed his life and his family dynamic. He is now a well-adjusted and happy high school student
  • When a young girl labeled herself as “shy”, WISDOM Coach®, Delia, helped her find her voice, become confident in school and reach out to make friends.
  • 9-year-old Scott was dealing with anxiety and fear from changes in school due to the pandemic. WISDOM Coach®, Tara, helped him work through those challenges and find hope and happiness.
  • 8-year-old Alan was a sensitive child, who was embarrassed by his crying. He worked with WISDOM Coach® Cristina and learned that by shifting his thoughts, he can shift his feelings and feel more in control when he was upset.
  • An 8-year-old girl was struggling so much with fear and anxiety, that she was getting physically ill and avoiding school. WISDOM Coach®, Jean, developed a “Resilience” program for her that helped her recover, and transition from primary to middle school.
  • A 9-year-old girl was struggling with relationships. By working with WISDOM Coach® Lisa, she learned that every time she is with someone, she leaves a mark – either  “gold heart” or a “grungy mark” based on how she treats them.  After learning about respect and giving “gold hearts”, she brought the activity to her whole family.
