Term 1 2017 - Cracking the Confidence Code

24 February 2017

It’s a must-do course for parents where low risk-taking and fear of failure is a constant companion for their kids. This course will put the skills and know-how at your fingertips to develop a real sense of confidence, competence and mastery in your kids. 

Term 2 2017 - Raising Mighty Girls

May 2017
Girls may have a head start on boys in the academic stakes but life these days is not all smooth sailing for girls. They are often harder on themselves than boys, more likely to be perfectionists, and have more fears.  Unlock the secrets to raising girls of any age so that they become more confident; build positive self-esteem and body image; can face up to their fears; build friendships and not cliques; face the challenges of living in a digital world; build strong connections with fathers from a young age; and make the most of their natural strengths.  More details coming soon...

Cracking the Confidence Code

What will I learn?

  • How to develop a ‘growth mindset’ in your child so that learning and development become hard-wired.
  • Key strategies to help a negative, pessimistic child take a more realistic, optimistic view of themselves and the world.
  • How to help a child overcome the curse of perfectionism so they take more risks and achieve more as learners.
  • The 3-letter word you must say to a child who says, “I can’t”, even when you know he can. This word is a game-changer. It’s worth doing the course just to learn this.
  • How praise differs from encouragement and why kids need to receive both.
  • Key strategies to help your child become more independent from you. You’ll also discover why independence building is a key confidence-building strategy.
