As parents we want what is best for our kids, and we are doing our best to raise kids who are confident, resilient, and empowered. With all that our kids deal with, it is easy to feel that the world is working against our efforts and worry about the ways our kids are coping with life and how it will affect their future. Growing up isn’t easy, but with these lessons specifically formulated for children, it is easy to make a monumental difference in your child’s mindset. Teaching them about their thoughts and using our simple strategies and tools can change how they think, which will change their behavior and the results they are getting. You can teach your kids about their thoughts, why they are important, and how they can have better control of their thoughts and their results in only 5-10 minutes per day!
Teach your kids about their thoughts, why they are important, and how they can improve their thoughts and in the end control the results they get in life. Thoughts are the first step to any result we get in life. If we can change our thoughts, we can change our lives. In this program, you will teach simple and effective tools to help your child improve their thoughts, and as a result, improve their lives overall. Learning about their thoughts and how to improve them will help children be more confident, happy, and better manage hard things that happen in life. You can make a lifelong difference in your kids’ lives by spending only 5-10 minutes per day.
This program will take you 8 weeks to complete. Two versions of each lesson are included. The full version gives you the option to teach the lessons once a week in one sitting; this will take about 45 minutes per week. The daily version breaks the lessons up into simple 5-10 minute per day lessons. Each lesson contains fun analogies, stories, games, and activities to help the children learn the concepts. These lessons require very little preparation. Most of the materials are already included. Just take a minute to gather any additional materials and then you can open it up and go!
