Why aren’t kids learning the one thing that has
the greatest impact on their lives?

Use stories to help your kids learn the mindset skills for creating happiness,
building confidence, owning their magnificence, living with purpose,
creating success in life, and being all they can be!

Dear parents,

Our 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?
  • 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?

Why do some kids struggle?

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 our kids!

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 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 uses stories to help children 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.

We now have parents around the world using our stories to empower their kids!

So you’re in the right place if…

  • You are looking for a fun and engaging life coaching program for kids curriculum to teach them mindset skills and life skills to soar!
  • You want your kids to know how to handle the ups and downs of growing up without getting down on themselves.
  • You want your kids to know how to handle mistakes and disappointments without giving up on themselves.
  • You want your kids to learn how to think for themselves, make good decisions, and stand up to peer pressure.
  • You want to give your kids the best chance of being ready for middle school and their teenage years.
Our life coaching program for kids can help kids learn how to stand up to peer pressure

This is also for you if you want…

  • You want your kids to come talk with you when they have problems or need advice
  • You want simple “conversation starters” that will help you talk about life lessons without being lecture-y
  • You want to know what to say during those priceless “teachable moments”
  • You’ve done your own personal development work (Oprah’s life class, Tony Robbins, The Secret, Landmark Forum, etc.) and you want your kids to learn this powerful way of thinking.
  • You want a fun and easy way to “meaningfully connect” with your children
Our life coaching program for kids helps you meaningfully connect with your children through stories

“Using stories to teach these skills is brilliant. Sometimes my kids don’t want to listen to me but they will listen to Wyatt the Wise Wizard.

We listen to the story and then talk about the lessons that Wyatt is teaching. It give me a great way to add my 2 cents without lecturing, preaching, or nagging.

The other day my son came home really upset because he did poorly on a test. We pulled out the story, “Afraid to Fail Fred” and worked on the lesson to put it in a box.

He felt so much better after that and even told me his plan to do better on the next test. Then he thanked me! What more could a Mom ask for. Thank you for helping me help my son.

I – Identify “Who” You Want to Be and What You Want for Your Life

What will kids do when grownups aren’t there?

Peer pressure is not only one of the toughest challenges kids face while growing up

but also one of the top reasons why kids get into trouble.

…and in the age of camera phones and the Internet,

the mistakes kids make can haunt them…

for the rest of their lives.

To stand up to peer pressure, kids must decide who they are and what they stand for; choose what they want for themselves before they are in a tough situation; and learn how to say “no” to their peers and “yes” to themselves.

In this segment kids will learn…

  • Four core values of self-leaders (including self-responsibility, integrity, respect, and self-respect)
  • How to make good decisions and decide what they want for themselves in key areas of their lives
  • How to recognize 5 different types of peer pressure
  • Key phrases for saying “No” to their peers

“Every moment of every day you get to choose who you want to be…. Choose you!”

“My son who is 8 years old enjoyed the story of “No One Will Know Nelson” and the associated items. The hands on activity using food dye and water to demonstrate how a seemingly little lie can cloud trust between two people was a very powerful experience. He now talks about “Nelson” in his everyday and has ownership of what integrity in action looks and feels like.

We use the “Lunch Box Notes” that come to my email inbox every Sunday without fail, not only to put in his lunch box, but as conversation starters also. It is always interesting to hear his take on the messages.

We have found “Adventures in Wisdom” to be a wonderful additional stepping stone to the lessons we are striving to convey.
Thank you for creating a product that is so positive and easy to integrate into our lives!”

– Cecilia (Mother of 8 year old)

“One of my biggest concerns about my daughter getting older is peer pressure. When her friends started turning on her I didn’t know how to help her – I felt helpless as I watched her self-esteem suffer. Now I feel I have some tools to support her. Thank you.”

“Dragons are just creations of your mind!”

“I loved everything I have found about Adventures in Wisdom! It is actually exactly what I have been looking for.

My child is 10. His teachers all say he lacks self confidence, which is baffling to me. He is my only child and my whole world! I have learned some of the reasons through the information I received from Adventures in Wisdom! The information was mind-opening and I appreciate it….

I know Adventures in Wisdom can give my son the tools to make his life what he wants it to be. I can’t role model every point of view but I can give him the tools to create his life with his own empowerment.

So this is why Adventures in Wisdom is so important to me and my family…”

So as you can see, your kids are going to learn some very powerful skills.
These are skills that kids don’t learn in school…and skills that most grownups don’t even know.

So you may be wondering…
Renaye, how EXACTLY are you going to teach me
how to teach these skills to my kids?

Here’s the best part!
I don’t have to!
Let me explain…

The Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching Program for Kids™ is a “home-study course” and is designed for BUSY families.

1. First, the curriculum is structured using a modular format which makes it very flexible for you to use with your clients.

Each of the 27 skills is taught through a separate skill book designed to take about 20 to 45 minutes depending on how much of it you do (just sharing the story and discussing it will take less time than if you do one of the activities as well).

The separate skill books make the program great for “spot coaching”. If you’re dealing with a particular issue such as peer pressure, integrity, or dealing with change…just pull out the relevant skill books and review them with your kids (we’ll give you a list of common  challenges kids face, and which skill books to review).

2. Second…each skill book has a Mentor’s Guide and a Children’s Guide

  • The Mentor’s Guide contains background information and coaching tips for you.
  • The Children’s Guide contains the story, discussion questions, activities, and Wyatt’s Wrap Up which summarizes the key points of the lesson.

27 skill books come with Mentor’s Guide and Children’s Guide

As a bonus you will also receive “Wise in Fives”

Wise in Fives are 1-page review sheets that you can use to practice a particular skill –
and they only take 5 minutes or less!

3. Third…You will receive a copy of both the MP3 Audio Package and the PDF Package – you can read the stories to your children, have them read the stories to you, or listen to the stories together.

(Stories are written at about a 4th-grade level)

P.S. If you’re like me, I’m sure you’ve looked at your kids and realized just how fast they are growing up.

Every day your kids are developing thought patterns about themselves, how the world works, and what is possible for their lives.

√ They are learning to navigate life now…
√ They are dealing with peer issues now…
√ They are facing challenges now…

And even if your child isn’t facing an immediate challenge, kids don’t have a problem…until they do.

The time to teach them is now – while they are young so they can use these skills as they enter middle school and their teenage years. When you build this “coaching” relationship early, you will be the one that your kids come to when they have a problem or need advice.

Remember that what we do with our kids during the first 12 years of their lives will impact the rest of their lives…and ours too.

Enjoy the journey!
