21 day challenge

The world no longer cares about what your kids know, it cares about what they can do with what they know.

​21 days to make (or break) a habit

If you want your child to be able to stand out from their competition and to thrive in the modern world then they need to have the Attitude, Skills, Emotional Intelligence and Thinking Ability to do so.

The question is: How can you ensure that they develop these qualities?

The 21 DAY RESILIENCE CHALLENGE will help you to do exactly this.

We break down the KEY elements of RESILIENCE and over 21 days, we help your child to understand what they are and more importantly, they get to practice, develop and experience them where it counts: the real world.

how the challenge works

The 21 Day Challenge is a downloadable workbook for your child to fill in and keep. Each day there are 3 fun activities that only take a minute or so to complete. 

  • 1
    MORNING ACTIVITY: your child answers one question that helps them to start their day in the right frame of mind.
  • 2
    DAILY MISSION: a single task or lesson that helps them to focus their thinking and their efforts during the day.
  • 3
    EVENING ACTIVITY: another simple question helps them to frame their day and reinforces what they have learned.

They get to practice and experience RESILIENCE in the real world, and at the same time the activities build their self-belief,  develop their identity and they begin to understand why the quality is important and why it should be important for them too (values).

a bit more science

The reason for a 21 Day Challenge is that they say that it takes 21 days to make (or break) a habit and we are trying to create a new behavioural habit.

By doing small things several times a day over 21 days we also take advantage of the something called the compound effect*. This means that small changes made consistently over time actually produce an out sized  effect,  each  small change COMPOUNDS into a much bigger result.

Also, studies** have shown that when you make a note of your achievements (no matter how small they might be) you actually increase your motivation and performance.  We take advantage of this by asking your child to make a quick note of the daily progress they make. As they see their progression this further increases their motivation and improves the results they achieve.

some tips

  • Why not do the challenge too? It's a lovely way to bond over a shared experience and you will increase your resilience as well (no bad thing).
  • An A4 folder is a great way to keep the pack together- we used one of these.
  • We recommend completing the 4 activities before taking this 21 Day Challenge, that way your child has an idea what to expect.
