Developing “the whole child” is becoming more important now than ever before!

Why?  Because a lot of parents are concerned about whether or not their children have fallen behind in school, due to the disruptions of the past year.

Parents are concerned about gaps in academics and gaps in their child’s social emotional development. And many parents are reaching out to teachers, tutors, life coaches and counselors for help. 

Educators, teachers, and tutors are concerned as well. So, many are seeking resources to support them with these amplified student needs.

They all want to develop the whole child! 

Watch a passionate discussion between an educator and kids’ mindset expert …

Educator, reading tutor, and online tutoring expert, Joanne Kaminski, recently interviewed Renaye Thornborrow, an expert on teaching mindset skills to kids.  Renaye is the founder of Adventures in Wisdom, a company that has certified hundreds of life coaches for kids on using a proven curriculum to teach mindset skills using stories and activities

There is a strong synergy between tutoring and life coaching for kids because both specialties work with children step-by-step to build and improve skills. Whether these are academic skills or life skills! 

Joanne and Renaye explored:

  • How mindset skills, including growth mindset, help kids build self-esteem, self-confidence, resilience, and a life they love
  • How kids who are struggling with school, or who are working with tutors, can achieve better results by building skills such as being respectful, maintaining self-esteem in the face of teasing, goal setting and more
  • How tutors can get even better results by adding life coaching to their tool set or connecting their students to a life coach for kids
