“…so valuable because kids aren’t learning this [mindset skills] in school!”

“I don’t say this very often, but I highly recommend what you’re doing. It is so valuable, and it’s so complete. That’s what I love about it and, obviously, really effective.”

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.”

How Life Coaching helps children

life coaching for kids builds confidence

Renaye shares story of 10-year-old Tyler stretching outside his comfort zone during this interview with Jack Canfield.

  • 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.
  • A 10-year-old boy’s low self-esteem and confidence was crippling him. He worked with WISDOM Coach® Rowan and she helped him rebuild his confidence by practicing stretching outside of his comfort zone and building belief systems that supported his goals. Within just a few short months, Tyler’s confidence and self-esteem were rebuilt and he was thriving at school and with friends. 
  • 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.
