The Adventures in Wisdom®
Life Coaching for Kids Curriculum

With the Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching for Kids story-based curriculum, you help children develop a mindset for happiness, confidence, and success in their lives.

We all want our kids to be happy and to walk in the world with their head held high – the question is, how we help them get that?

It doesn’t matter how much we love our children, we can’t give them self-esteem, self-confidence, or success in life. But what we can do is help them to develop it in themselves!

The Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching for Kids Curriculum is a fun, story-based program that gives step-by-step tools for helping kids develop powerful mindset skills to handle the ups and downs of growing up; to think for themselves and make good decisions; and to go for their dreams and make them happen.

What makes our
life coaching for kids curriculum 
so unique?

The Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching  for Kids Curriculum is different than any other coaching or mentoring program available.

This curriculum is not about how to discipline children. It’s  about how to empower children to develop powerful thinking skills – mindset skills – that will enable them to handle the ups and downs of growing up so they don’t get down on themselves or give up on themselves when things don’t go their way.

Children learn a powerful way of thinking so that they are confident and prepared to choose the right path in life, to handle anything that comes their way, and to go for their dreams.


With our proven 5-step
WISDOM System for Coaching Kids…

children learn mindset skills for creating happiness, confidence, self-esteem, self-leadership, and success in their lives!

All taught through the power of coaching stories
with Wyatt the Wise Wizard and a Certified WISDOM Coach as children’s guide!

27 stories in all

Stories are a great way to teach these concepts because children remember stories – they are fun, engaging, and a non-threatening way to help kids learn how to navigate life.

Through the stories, kids see how the skills are used to solve real-life problems that they might face at school, with their friends, or at home.

W – Wire Your Brain for Happiness and Success

MindPower is the secret behind why some people live a life of their dreams while others seem to struggle…never quite creating the life they imagined or dreamed of.

Kids learn how their thoughts create their experiences and what they can do to shape their thoughts. Kids learn how both their conscious mind and their subconscious mind work and how belief systems are at the core of shaping how they experience their lives. They learn secrets as to how their mind works and how to build a belief system based on possibility.

The MindPower Segment lays the groundwork for the rest of the Adventures in Wisdom™ segments.

The secret to creating happiness and reaching your fullest potential is understanding the power of your mind and how to use it!”

I know I’m helping kids develop skills they will use for life!

I have taught in Elementary Education for 30 years. “I became a life coach for kids because I have a huge heart for students that are a little extra unique. I wanted to teach them and help them understand that being perfectly imperfect is beautiful. Every day I work hard in my classroom to build independence and confidence while instilling the love of who they are…”

The benefits of life coaching for students include that students are more confident and understanding of what they think, and why they believe what they believe. I have taught the Adventures in Wisdom program for 2 years in an afterschool setting. I have heard from other teachers at my school how much more confident the students are and how they handle challenging situations in the classroom so much better.

The parents in my classroom have mentioned how happy they are that I am teaching some of the skills from the program in my classroom and how their child comes home and teaches them what they have learned. It provides the parents with an opportunity to talk about subjects they wouldn’t normally discuss like comfort zone, being unique, how to handle failure, goal setting, etc. It is a win-win program for everyone!

What I love most about being a life coach for kids is knowing that I am making a positive impact they can carry with them on their journey through life. The skills instilled in their heart and mind at any age will help them create a life of success and acceptance as they navigate the ups and downs of the world!

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

Skill 11Standing Up to Peer Pressure – Say “Yes” to You and “No” to Peer Pressure“Copy Cat Cathy”

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

The Teacher Noticed!

WISDOM Coach Limor was working with her own son on the InnerPower program where they focused on the values of self-leaders – responsibility, respect, self-respect, and integrity.

When the teacher called she asked Limor if anything had happened to Johnny ? Was everything OK? Because his behavior had changed.

Her first thought was, “Oh no, not again.”

But the teacher said, “Oh, no – he’s really good! He opened the door for me, and he opened the door for the other kids, and he helped out, and he offered to help other kids.”

The change was so noticeable that WISDOM Coach® Limor launched an after school program at her son’s school. It was so popular, the school created two classes.

Limor shared, “The curriculum gave us a common language. I could ask, ‘Did you give golden hearts today?’ and he knew immediately what I meant.”

I Struck Gold!

I am a Child and Family Psychologist in Westchester County. NY My approach is very unique in that my focus is on growth, empowerment, health, and wellness; whereas most psychologists in my area still take a very western medical approach and focus on symptoms, diagnoses, problems, and weaknesses….

I searched for quite some time but never found a program that worked for me. Then I stumbled upon Adventures in Wisdom and my search was over!! I knew I struck gold, I am so excited to incorporate this fantastic program into my work with children, whether in groups or when working privately with clients, I also plan to incorporate this into the school-based wellness programs that I have created. I feel right at home Knowing that I am among like-minded people who really love and care about kids!”
