Happiness, Confidence and Resilience 

– for you and your kids-

We were all born LightHearted

There is a simple yet profound understanding about what makes humans tick that has the potential to transform every element of having a child, and being one.

Ages 6-10 can hold their own unique challenges – changing friendships, starting to assert their own preferences and individuality, sometimes losing confidence in their own abilities and seemingly  having no respect at all for their elders – ie you!

Ages 10-13 can be tricky transitional years – moving schools, the onset of hormones, constantly being plugged into their devices, feeling a lack of confidence and self-doubt are all common experiences.

What if your kids could learn the fundamental principles behind happiness, confidence and resilience that allowed them to tap into the lightheartedness they were born with?

In a way that made sense to them?

Happiness

Imagine a family where your kids knew where true happiness really came from and were able to tap into that whenever required? Do you think your house would be a little calmer??! 

Thriving

Our children have an unlimited potential for thriving and success. When we talk and engage with that part of our kids, get what we get? A child who can flourish in any circumstance – whatever life may throw at them.

Resilience

How about if your kids saw how completely unbreakable they are? If they could see how they are naturally designed to bounce back. Would that change how you handled the latest upset at school?

Our Mission

Six Weeks to LightHeartedness

Seventeen bite-sized modules focussing on core themes, in a language your kids will understand, delivered over a 6-week period.

Based on the established SPARK curriculum*, these short videos will be delivered directly to you each week to sit down to share and discuss with your kids, and we can send them directly to your child as well if you wish. 

No live calls, no embarrasing chats with adults, just open up a phone, tablet or computer and watch. Might as well put those devices to good use!

As a parent, you also have access to our LightHearted Facebook Group so you can ask questions and join the community of other parents all looking in this direction.

 Tricky Feelings

Sometimes we get sad, worried, angry or nervous and we don’t know what to do to handle the situation better. In this first module we’ll explore the link between how we think and how we feel. We’ll also talk about how to make better decisions so you feel better at school and at home. 

 

 

 

Finding Your Inner Spark

Did you know there’s something built into you that always lets you know what to do? Something that’s yours and can never be broken or taken away from you? In this module we’ll get familiar with what that is and how to access it whenever you need it.

 

 

Feeling Confident

Nerves can often get the better of us and we can start worrying about going to school, taking part in clubs, doing our homework, getting ready for tests or just hanging out with friends. Here we’ll talk about useful ways to handle that and where confidence really comes from.

 

 

 Moods and How to Handle Them

Sometimes you’re in a bad mood seemingly for absolutely no good reason at all. At those times, you probably get into fights with friends and parents and usually end up in trouble! What if there was a different way to be more successful at getting what you want?

 

 

Bullying from the Inside-Out

In this module we’ll talk about why bullies do what they do and how you can best handle it if they come your way. That inner spark we talk about on earlier modules? It’s impossible for bullies to damage that in any way and sometimes, that’s just good to know.

 

 

Academic Stress to Academic Success

We can often have thoughts that actually get in the way of us doing as well as we might be able to at school. In this final module we’ll learn how to be able to tackle any challenge in school calmly and take a look at how you can thrive to your full potential in the whole of your life.

What!!? It’s free?

Until 23 May (or until we enroll 10,000 kids, whichever comes first!) registration is completely free.

Why? Because our mission is to enrol 10,000 kids and this is the fastest way we know how.

All we ask is that if you like what you see, please share with your friends, teachers and colleagues.

This little girl is just 6 years old and has just learned that she has been born with something inside her that always lets her know what to do and is completely unbreakable.

And just imagine if you’d discovered this when you were 13 years old.

“You can always choose if you listen to the spark or not and it’s all about learning when to listen to it and making you and other people happier. Also just knowing that how you act can’t make people feel anything so if someone is angry or annoyed at you and you haven’t done anything wrong then don’t let how they are being affect you and your behaviour because it won’t be about you.”

 

“How will your spark help you at school today?”

How different the playground might be….

FAQs

What if my kids roll their eyes when I suggest this?

That’s a pretty typical reaction! Some kids love to snuggle up and spend some ‘special time’ together watching the videos with you. But if they’re not into that, then YOU watch the videos. You’ll learn how to share this understanding in a way they understand, and you can just drop what you’ve learned into every day conversation with them.

 

 

Do you have anything for 14-18 year olds?

Not yet, but it’s coming! 

 

My kid's school could really benefit from this - can I share?

Brilliant – please give this link to them to take a look: https://alittlepeaceofmind.co.uk/lighthearted/

 

 

 

Your Teacher

 

 I am a mother of three and an Advanced Transformational coach. My own life was transformed from one of anxiety and stress to one where I experience a light-heartedness and carefreeness I never knew was possible. This has made a huge difference to my own parenting and I’ve always wanted a way to share what I’ve learned with my children so they can grow up knowing this right from the start. This program is my attempt to do just that. And share with you on the way!
