What is life coaching for kids?

Life coaching for kids is all about empowering them through mindset development. Kids learn how to use the power of their mind and the power of their thoughts to create happiness, confidence, and success in their lives. As a certified WISDOM CoachⓇ, I use the story based program from Adventures in Wisdom™ to focus on the 27 powerful mindset skills. Stories are powerful learning tools because they make us think…and they make us feel. They imprint a picture in our mind and a feeling in our heart. This creates an experience and helps us understand. And they are a powerful way to connect with kids!

FAQ Wood Blocks

Reasons to hire a life coach for your kids:

● When you see your kids struggling with low self-esteem — getting down on themselves, beating themselves up, or thinking that no one likes them.

● When you want to help your child be more successful in school or extracurricular activities.

● When your child is going through a big change, such as a move, a new school, or divorcing parents.

● When you see your kids struggling with confidence, shyness, or anxiety — shying away from new things or new experiences.

● When you want to give your child a jumpstart in developing self-leadership skills.

● When you see your child making poor choices with peers.

● When there are constant struggles at home around homework, chores, and other responsibilities.

Life Coaching vs Counseling

Although life coaching and counseling may have similarities, such as asking the important questions, listening, and finding patterns in people's lives, they are not the same thing.

Counseling is designed to help those with more serious issues lead a more normal, productive life or to get back on track – these types of issues might include anxiety, depression, or OCDs – moving past abuse or going through a personal crisis at home such as an illness or divorce.

Life coaching is different. It is about helping people get from where they are to where they want to be. For most people, that means reaching higher goals and creating greater success, creating more balance and happiness in their lives, and feeling more fulfilled in their lives and in their relationships – it’s about creating what they want.

In many ways, counseling is about resolving or managing issues from the past... whereas life coaching is about creating the future and helping clients achieve the ultimate vision they have for their lives.

Isn't That The Parents' Job?

People often confuse parenting and “life coaching for kids”. Life coaching goes beyond the traditional parenting roles of moral and character development and it goes beyond learning how to treat others and learning how to behave.

WISDOM Coaching is all about teaching kids’ empowerment skills and personal development skills so they can become self-leaders of their own lives. Think of it as leadership training for kids! What are taught are things even some grownups haven’t learned. The program I use is called the WISDOM System for Coaching Kids.

Through the program, kids learn how to use the power of their mind and the power of their thoughts to create happiness, confidence, and success in their lives. The best part is...they get to learn it through stories! I work in partnership with parents as part of that parent’s team of trusted advisors to help their children thrive in life.
