How to raise resilient kids for a calmer, happier home.
 

Mighty Minds - Kid’s Coaching

Children are capable of making good decisions. Here’s how we can help!

Time and time again children have proven their amazing capabilities. Even the youngest child can make some pretty solid decisions around their behaviour. However, what I hear the most from my families is children making poor decisions and parents feeling confused, overwhelmed and frustrated around the behaviour outcome.

This may look like siblings fighting, children snatching and daily outbursts in public! (*cringe*) So, what can we change to support better decision making?

According to Self Determination Theory kiddos need three essential ingredients in order to make better decisions around their behaviour. These core elements are included in all of my Mighty Minds kids coaching programs.

Discover. Explore. Grow.

Help your child discover the power of their emotions, explore sensible solutions and grow as a resilient individual!

Mighty Minds kid’s coaching revolves around connection, autonomy and competence.

We all know that children need strong, consistent connections in their life. Connection builds confidence and allows children the safety to explore their self identity and the role they play in their family and community. Connection is the key to self esteem and resilient thinking.

However, autonomy and competence sometimes get forgotten about. This is probably because giving space for autonomy and competence takes a lot more intention and work for many parents. We can become consumed with keeping them safe and navigating their decisions so they feel the least amount of discomfort. This keeps life much simpler, knowing everyone is safe. Which is all completely reasonable but the problem begins when children do not experience self governance.

Self governance, or making one's own decisions, comes when a child experiences intrinsic self control. Through making their own decisions children become more competent and confident.

Intrinsic self control is when an individual makes decisions not based on fear or reward but with a desire to grow more competent (growth mindset). Your child's mindset impacts their decision making and behaviour.

By learning about and focusing on the three core elements shared - connection, competence and autonomy - families thrive. Children can make better overall decisions and live happier, more fulfilled childhoods leading to a resilient, more capable adulthood.

If you are concerned about your child's ability to make better decisions grab a chat with me to explore emotional coaching in your home. My programs include the three elements of SDT in all of our activities and coaching conversations. We take it even further by teaching children as early as the toddler years how to manage their big emotions and begin critical thinking through practising mindfulness and early reasoning.

 Does your child need help with:

  • Frequent outbursts

  • Irrational worry

  • Over competitiveness

  • Sibling fighting

  • Aggression at home or school

  • Quick to give up

  • Avoiding anything new

  • Low cooperation

  • Poor decision making

  • Frequent defiance

They may be a great fit for Mighty Minds emotional coaching!

 How it all works!

What is included? And how does it work?

Let’s keep this process simple. We begin with a planning call! Let’s jump on the phone and discuss your family’s unique needs and begin putting an action plan into place. Next, we schedule out our home and/or Skype sessions - depending on your chosen package.

Your initial home or Skype session will be for exploring behaviour challenges and determining your goals for your family. We will create a step by step behaviour plan which incorporates skill building activities and positive, evidence based discipline solutions to boost your confidence moving forward.

After introducing behaviour solutions we will dive into your child’s specific needs and initiate emotional coaching lessons and activities. This varies depending on your chosen package and is available as 1:1 kids coaching in your home or parent training via Skype and online modules.

All coaching packages include my private, client group with your own personal login for accessing online modules, monthly coaching calls, family time downloads, live Q and A’s, special guest interviews and more.

*Pricing is in Australian Dollars.


 Meet Stephanie

Simply Kids was created by behaviour specialist, Stephanie Wicker, as an avenue of support for parents, families and early childhood educators.  Our mission is to provide families with simple, sensible solutions to the challenges which may be interrupting their connection with their children, through home visits (Sydney based), parent coaching and practical online resources.

Challenging childhood behaviours like disobedience, defiance and aggression can trigger an emotional reaction in us as adults. When a person feels like they’re under attack, it leads to a defensive mindset which places a wedge between the adult and the child.

Our goal is to simplify why children do what they do and remove the wedge in the parent/child relationship during difficult behaviours. Learn more.
