General

Do children need this sort of thing?

Research has shown highest achievers are those with strong all-round development not just academic skills and qualifications. Children who have strong social and emotional skills are better at managing themselves and their thoughts, attitudes and feelings and better at dealing with others. A successful leader is normally a good people person. It is vital to give children the right skills and attitudes in their formative years so they build their life on a positive foundation that empowers them.

My child is already confident. I don't need this sort of thing do I?

Confidence comes from high self-esteem, so if your child is confident they probably have one of the main ingredients of a happy and successful life. A well-rounded child may well experience more success in life than one who is purely confident. Other skills and qualities are equally important as confidence.../p>

What happens at a workshop?

The workshops teach children life skills through fun, using stories, games and activities. In a typical session, children first experience a Kidz4Mation story which teaches a positive life lesson, followed by written activities where they explore their feelings around the theme they have just learnt. There is also breathing and relaxation and other coaching including walking and talking with confidence. Mikey the monkey and his friends have also been known to make an appearance during the stories!
