ALL WE WANT IS FOR OUR KIDS TO BE HAPPY AND SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE.
But….. sometimes, even when they have everything they could need and want they just can’t seem to get happy or stay happy. You ask yourself ‘what am I doing wrong?’, ‘how can I get them to see the brighter side of life?’ and ‘how can I show them that they won’t die if they try something new?’
Well for one, you are not doing anything wrong my friend. You are doing everything you can to give your kids everything in life – but the truth is, you can’t GIVE your children confidence, resilience or the grit they need to manage life’s ups and downs.
BUT you can TEACH them how to develop these qualities in themselves – through understanding how their mind works and how they can use this understanding to stand in their power by shifting their thinking to the positive.
* Struggling to get your child to see the bright side of life
TO them being able to recognise when negative nancy is stealing their happiness and then being able to switch to powerful thinking patterns where they stand in their power and see the glass half full so they can enjoy life!
* Losing your mind and feeling out of control
TO understanding what sets you off and then using the strategies you learn to empower your child to understand themselves and shift how they see the world too.
* Feeling at your wits end every time you suggest your child tries something new which instantly get’s a ‘No’ because they don’t want to make a mistake or look silly in front of others
TO seeing your child being open to trying new things and growing their confidence and self esteem.
* Living on eggshells at home, not wanting to trigger a meltdown
TO becoming an empowered family who creates their own happiness through positive connection
* Feeling helpless, not knowing how to help your child stop thinking they are ‘stupid’ or how to build their confidence and resilience
TO seeing your child pick themselves up, dust themselves off and enjoy the learning that comes with making mistakes
* Being emotionally exhausted from working so hard to keep the peace
TO having the time and space to take care of yourself in a peaceful home.
