“How learning the skill of ‘Managing Change’ transformed an 11-year-old boy’s attitude and behavior”

See how a single, 90-minute online GROUP workshop on “Managing Change” helped kids and their families, during the pandemic.



WISDOM Coach Judy shares the tremendous impact the online workshop had on a boy who went from being angry, fighting with his siblings, disrespectful to his parents and resistant to online learning, to becoming kinder, more patient and responsible for his routine and learning.

She also shares tips for creating family harmony as well. 

…how we manage change directly impacts our happiness and what we create in our lives. We learned that the main thing is when we take control of our thoughts and the way we think, it helps us to stand in our power and feel like we have some control over the situation and what is happening to us and around us. And how we experience the situation all comes down to how we allow ourselves to think about it.”

Judy Nieuwenhuizen, WISDOM Coach

The mindset skills Judy discusses in this video:

WISDOM Coaches use stories, discussion and activities to help kids learn, understand and practice essential mindset skills kids will use throughout their school years and for life.

  • Managing Change – is taught with the story, “Changes in Paradise”.  Kids meet 5 animals who are forced to move from a home they love. Each animal reactts differently. One is sad, one is angry, one is in denial and one is excited.  The story follows the animals through their move and helps to teach the three steps for managing change. 

“I’ve shared some tips to help families thrive during times of change as well.”

Judy Niewenhuizen

“…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.”
