Life Coaching For Kids
Inspiring kids one story at a time
Life coaching for kids is all about mindset development and empowerment.
I use coaching stories, hands-on activities, projects, art, songs, videos, and journaling to teach kids how to use the power of their thoughts to create confidence, happiness, and success in life.
In life coaching with kids, we focus on the following key developmental areas:
- self-confidence and self-esteem
- personal responsibility
- positive self talk
- emotional regulation
- decision making
- handling peer pressure
- visualization and affirmations
- and resilience
As a parent, I know you love your kids and want the very best for them. If you could buy a box of "confidence-happiness-success" off the shelf for your child, I know you would - no matter the price.
But the truth is, you can't give your child confidence, happiness and success like you can a hug or a kiss. And just telling your kids what to do, think, or feel when things are tough doesn't work either.
So what's a parent to do?
You can help your child develop these skills within themselves by partnering with a life coach like me. I'm here to teach your child the lifelong lessons for success, happiness, and confidence, and support you in helping your child blossom.

Really? A life coach for kids?
Think back to your youth - don't you wish you had someone back then to show you the roadmap to success and happiness? Someone to teach you how your mind actually works, how to build self-confidence from the inside, overcome your fears and worries, and follow your dreams with decisive and brave action?
As a certified WISDOM Coach,™ that's exactly what I do today with kids all around the country!
All of my youth programs are based on a proven coaching model called The WISDOM System for Coaching Kids. What makes this system so powerful is that I use storytelling and experiential learning to help kids develop powerful mindset skills for transformation, achievement, and self-confidence.

The WISDOM System for Coaching Kids
1. MindPower - Wire your mind for happiness, confidence, and success
This is the secret behind why some people live happy, fulfilling lives - a life of their dreams, while others seem to struggle – never quite achieving the life they imagined or dreamed of. When kids understand how their mind actually works, they gain the confidence and tools to achieve their goals. It’s not magic. Confidence, self-esteem, happiness and resilience are not things you either “have” or “don’t have”. They all can be developed through life coaching.
2. InnerPower - Identify who you want to be and what you want for your life
Negative peer pressure can cause tremendous stress on kids who just want to fit in and be accepted by the other kids at school. Fear of being rejected, teased, laughed at, or of losing friendships can cause anxiety and even depression. What can we do? Through life coaching, we start by helping kids develop their own inner compass, learn how to make good decisions and stand against peer pressure by saying YES to themselves!
3. MePower - See your inner superstar and shine
Through life coaching, children can develop solid self-esteem and strong self-confidence that doesn't rise and fall with the ups and downs of life. There are specific skills kids can learn to handle challenges and disappointments so kids can feel good about themselves and believe in themselves - no matter what comes their way!
4. DreamPower - Dream big, live with purpose, and make it happen
Throughout history, humans have made the once “impossible”, possible – from electricity, to flight, to cell phones, to open heart surgery – impossible dreams have become day-to-day conveniences of the modern world. And it's all the result of dreaming! Through life coaching, kids realize that no one can make their dreams come true except for them! Kids learn to create a vision for their lives, live with intention, set goals, and use the power of visualization, affirmations, and gratitude to program their mind for success. Best of all, kids learn how to make their dreams come true without a fairy godmother or lottery ticket!
5. Slaying Dragons - Bust through fear, mistakes, failure, and change
Fear, Failure, Mistakes, and Change. These are the dragons that keep so many people from their dreams. I use the term “dragons” to describe the negative thinking and limiting beliefs that keep us from our happiness and our goals. Through life coaching, kids learn to slay the dragons and develop powerful self-confidence and strong self-esteem as they realize they can handle any obstacle that comes their way.
