Kids Life Coaching: Prevention is Always Better than Cure

You see, everything has its roots. Many, if not most, adults whose lives are a concern today have their issues rooted in childhood and teenage years. 

When seemingly trivial issues are unchecked, they spiral into something less manageable and onto mental health issues we see in adults today. Sometimes, significant stress or trauma can lead to mental health disorders, such as anxiety and depression.

In today’s world, we are constantly faced with social media, advertising and we get to see a lot of crime, violence, glamour, wealth displays, and everything that can trouble the mind. 

Unfortunately, these things are even more worrying for your kids. That’s because, unlike you, they are not fully matured enough to process the information and sift the good from the bad. 

Seeing graphic scenes and violence on the news and keep up on social media can unsettle your child’s mind long-term. Displays of wealth and beauty standards can cause anxiety in teens as they struggle to meet societal expectations. What about what they see in movies? They stick in your child’s mind and can become a part of their thought process. 

If such kids do not get adult guidance, their mental health can be seriously affected. Think about depressed or traumatized adults or those with a penchant for violence. These issues are significantly rooted in what they come across as youngsters. 

And unfortunately, our smartphones have become our primary means of communication, and we can’t keep our kids away from them. What happens is that they get both the upsides and downsides of social media use

Why you should consider kids life coaching as soon as possible

It’s advisable to consider kids life coaching if you want to raise children with impressive coping skills and high self-esteem. After all prevention is always better than cure.

Kids life coaching can provide your child with tools and tips on managing challenges, worries, and stress at a young age. A coach is neutral, a coach is non-judgemental, they can listen and provide your child with impartial advice.

Young people suffer from stress, worry and anxiety just like adults. Work and parenthood can be a stressor for you. For your teen, it could be school, and the need to socialise, or relationship issues. 

Kids life coaching can help your child with:

Coping skills – knowing how to live healthily amid the never-ending stressors they come across online and offline

Emotional regulation – understanding how they feel and learning to control how they react

Self-soothing skills – developing behaviours your kids can use to calm themselves when battling anxiety.

Social Awareness – respect and manners are the basic building blocks of civil society. Help your child portray a good image of kindness and empathy. 

In the end, you’ll have a child with high levels of resilience, self-confidence, and emotional intelligence; a child you can be proud of; a child who grows up to be a positive contributor to society.

We engaged Coach Andrea for my 12 year old at a point where my child was going through a period of emotional roller-coaster and often angry. Andrea is very kind, approachable, warm and patient that my child feels comfortable opening up to her. Having another adult, rather than us parents, to talk gave her a safe outlet. She taught my child useful life tools to help better manage her anger. We saw improvements and happy with the impact Coach Andrea had on my child. I would highly recommend Coach Andrea to any parent!

Rebecca has been a great help to me during my long and challenging fertility journey. From my very first session with her, I felt instantly at ease. Rebecca took great care to really understand my story, my journey so far, my disappointments and my hopes. I found her questions incredibly insightful and perceptive. Together, we uncovered a number of unresolved issues and she handled all our conversations with the utmost sensitivity and empathy. Rebecca is genuinely passionate about helping anyone with fertility issues and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who is looking for someone authentic and caring to speak to.

I was really struggling with stress and not knowing how to manage it effectively. It felt like everything was spiralling out of control and I was constantly reacting emotionally to situations. However, after just a few coaching sessions with Rebecca, I feel like I've turned a corner. She has helped me to see things (and myself) from a different perspective and given me lots of guidance on living a more purposeful and stress-free life. I'm now much more mindful of my thoughts and actions, and after implementing all the tools learnt in our sessions, I’m finally learning how to manage my stress and am feeling calmer and more in control than ever before. If you're struggling with stress, I would highly recommend Rebecca- she's truly transformed my life!

My children, aged 11, did Life Coaching with Coach Andrea. Andrea has a soft touch - she was very approachable, gentle, kind and patient with them, offering valuable lessons on how to lead a healthy life, in both mind and body. The materials were presented in a fun way, in the format of games and videos, so it was understandable and digestible. Having another adult, rather than us parents, talk with the kids helped them be more receptive to all the topics too. The kids really enjoyed her pre-recorded meditations for night time to help them relax before bed. The pre-teen/teen years can be an emotional roller coaster ride for both kids and parents, but I feel that Andrea’s coaching (she even helped me with some great pointers) has really helped us prepare with valuable tools to better navigate what’s ahead! It’s definitely a worthwhile investment and would highly recommend to anyone and their kids!

The moment I heard about Kids Life Coaching from Coach Andrea, I knew I had to sign my kid up for it. Coach Andrea helped to show my pre-teen the tools she needs to cope with all sorts of things life throws at her now, and prepare her for what it will throw at her in the future. I think it was a bit challenging to get things out of her in the beginning, but after building a relationship with her, it became easier. I recommend Kids Life Coaching with Coach Andrea strongly because it’s so important for kids to learn these coping tools, or as she puts it: Superpowers!

Frolic for Life’s Kids Life Coaching with Coach Andrea was such a great experience for my pre-teen son. Coach Andrea helped him with a transition to a new school and then a transition to a new country one year later! It was so helpful for him to have so many tools in his back pocket to deal with all of the emotions and big feelings. Having an extra adult in his life who he could confide in and trust with his feelings was really important to us. Especially living far from extended family. He really appreciated the role she played for him and felt pretty cool having his own “life coach”. I highly recommend Coach Andrea. She is so excellent with this age group. She really knows how to talk to pre-teens and earn their respect and trust without judgement.
