Preparing your kids for success in school and beyond is a tricky business these days.
Most parents (and you may be one of them) tend to parent instinctively, you keep your fingers crossed and hope that your kids turn out ok.
We did this too.
That is until we realised, if we wanted to help our kids to stand out from their competition, to be successful at whatever they wanted to do, and to live their life on their terms, we needed to think and act differently: instinct and hope just aren't going to cut it.
So, after much research, trial, error, and experimentation (sorry kids)... out went the old approach.
No longer were we parental mechanics, solving problems as they arose, correcting them when they did something wrong. That was exhausting, and it didn't work very well- they kept on making the same mistakes.
Instead, we became parental gardeners- most of the time!
It's longer-term, but ultimately a much more rewarding approach (for us and for them).
As gardeners our focus is on 2 things:
Imagine now, that you had somebody to help you craft this experience for you and for your child.
Someone who does all the research, saving you the time and hassle of doing it yourself.
Someone who breaks this research down into key takeaways, so you get to create the home environment that will enable your child to develop and flourish.
Someone who creates fun, engaging lessons and challenges that teach your kids the skills and attributes they need to understand their inner selves and to thrive in the modern world.
How bloomin' fantastic would that be?
Imagine how you will feel now, as they close that front door for the last time?
"I did a great job, well done."
"I did my very best!"
Our kids face a more uncertain economic future than we ever did. Traditional white-collar jobs are being lost to technology, whilst more and more graduate competition is emerging from the so-called developing world.
Unfortunately, an education is no longer the competitive advantage it once was.
Our research over the last three years has highlighted 3 key areas of character development and 9 key skills that your child will need to be successful in this modern, uncertain world.
We produce a LIFE SKILLS REPORT around one of the aforementioned 12 themes.
Each report is based on proven ideas from the latest and best scientific research, and our objectives are to:
For those who want to be gardeners, we have 2 membership options: FREE and PAID.

WHO IS THIS MEMBERSHIP FOR?
It's for busy parents of tweens and teens that want to help their kids to develop these skills, but don't have the time or expertise to do the job as well as they would like to. It's ONE membership per household so everyone can benefit from the monthly resources.
THIS ALL SOUNDS GREAT, BUT WHERE DO I FIND THE TIME?
Most of the lessons, activities and challenges can be done with little or no input from you (depending on the age of your child). Our aim is to condense vital information into small easy to read and implement advice, so we've designed everything to take up as little of your time as possible. You can choose to invest as much time as you wish, or is possible that month.
WHAT IF I'M BUSY AND MISS A MONTH?
No problem! You can come back to it later when you have the time. You will have lifetime access to each and every single month that you pay for with your Membership, as well as the back catalogue, this way, you and your kids will be able to benefit when and as often as you like.
WHO ARE YOU?
We are parents too (10-year-old twins). We realised that success in life is more than just qualifications and a good CV, and yet this is all that parents and schools seem to focus on.
So we started out by trying to teach our twins life skills in a deliberate and structured way. Our initial research told us that other parents were worried that their kids weren’t getting this type of education either, so we created Lifehacksforkids to fulfil that need. You can read more about us here.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL OR PAUSE MY MEMBERSHIP?
No problem! Just send us an email and we can pause or cancel your membership at any time, no questions asked and you still get access to all of the Monthly Life Skills Reports that you have paid for. Membership is commitment-free and risk-free! There is literally no reason not to give it a try.
HOW DID YOU DECIDE THE THEMES?
The world is changing, fast. When they become adults our kids will face more competition for work than we ever did. Our research tells us that these 12 skills will be vital for our kids to be able to stand out from both their human and technological competition.
We talk about this in more detail in this article.
