Helping Coaches Learn about Life Coaching for Kids!

Topic Title: “Life Coaching Isn’t Just for Grownups – Three Skills Every Child Should Learn Before the Age of 10”
When faced with challenges or disappointments, most kids don’t have the tools to handle them. As a result, they often get down on themselves or give up on themselves – developing belief systems that can hold them back for the rest of their lives. As coaches, we’ve seen the impact of childhood events on adult clients over-and-over again!
Coaching isn’t just for grownups. It’s a game changer for our youth when they learn how to break through limiting beliefs and proactively create supportive beliefs to help them thrive. Life coaching can help kids learn how to use the power of their thoughts to handle the ups and downs of growing up and to develop a mindset for creating happiness, confidence, and success in life.
In this session coaches will learn about three mindset skills that all kids should learn before the age of 10 and how they can use stories and activities to coach kids (the skills work for grownup clients too).
Three learning objectives:
- Why life coaching is critical for our youth
- Three traps that crush self-esteem and mindset skills that can help kids beat those traps
- Activities you can use immediately to help children practice these mindset skills
- How you can use coaching stories to evoke awareness, learning, and action in children

Thank you Renaye for dedicating your life to making it easier for coaches to find parents to help kids. I highly recommend you every chance I get.
I was thrilled to interview Renaye Thornborrow as part of my Unboxed Brain Series – a monthly program where I spotlight out-of-the box thinkers who are bringing creative solutions to the world.
She is engaging, creative, generous and knows her stuff. What I love about her innovative approach is that it enables coaches to use stories and engaging activities to bring life coaching to kids.
Her innovative certification program is exactly what the industry, and parents for that matter, need in this arena. My audience loved her and she was fun and easy to work with.
If you get the chance to hear her speak or take part in her programs, do it. You won’t be disappointed.
Renaye Thornborrow recently provided a continuing education program for our group of certified coaches.
Her program for coaching kids serves as a great resource for divorce coaches because either parents need something to help them to focus on the children during divorce AND divorce coaches can benefit from adding coaching for children to their services.
Renaye is very engaging, has a gracious and direct manner and is so innovative in her approach to coaching children through stories.
I wish I were a kid again because I could have benefited greatly from having a coach when my self-esteem hit the skids after the death of my mother at the tender age of eight.
