what others say about our work

teach your kids recommendation

I would highly recommend to any parent needing to get in the here and now of parenting… but also who wants to look to the future too.

TALYA STONE  //  Motherhood: The Real Deal

It is presented in a very straightforward and easy to read manner and I can already see that there is value in the takeaway.

ALICIA ANTONIO //  The Bottle Poppin Mamma

The main focus is to help you discover your own values and put your own plan into action, as opposed to telling you what to do.

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/ is possible.

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, so 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. If you purchase an annual membership your cancellation will take effect at the next renewal. Membership is commitment- 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 extremely important 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
