teach your child how to be resilient

According to research* how RESILIENT your child is will be the most significant predictor of how successful and happy they will be in life.

The question is: How can you help your child be more RESILIENT?

* Angela Duckworth Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance 


You will know from your own life experience just how important RESILIENCE is. Now, imagine how different your life would be had your parents taught you how to BE RESILIENT!

And that's the good news, the experts agree that RESILIENCE can be taught, it's not a 'you either have it or you don't' quality.

However, it isn't taught in school, and you can't learn it from a book, so how can you help your kids to develop this key life skill?

the resilience report

The aim of the REPORT is to create lasting behavioural change, it's not enough to know about RESILIENCE, we actually want your child to BE RESILIENT. 

How do we do this? 

Well, not by focusing on changing behaviour, that never works for long- as those of us who have ever used the 'carrot and stick' approach will know only too well.

Lasting behavioural change can only come about if you focus on the drivers of behaviour: identity, beliefs and values.

First of all, we make sure that your kids understand what RESILIENCE is and what RESILIENT behaviour looks like.

Then, through activities, games and challenges we get them to practice RESILIENCE where it counts: the real world.

This real world context helps them to see why RESILIENCE is important (values), and their experiences lead to increased belief in themselves and their ability to be RESILIENT (belief),  and they then start to see themselves as a RESILIENT person (identity).

    To paraphrase Will Durant: We are what we repeatedly do. RESILIENCE, then, is not an act, but a habit. Over 21 days, your child gets to repeatedly 'do' RESILIENCE in the real world. This is where their VALUES, BELIEF and IDENTITY are forged.

It's for busy parents of tweens and teens that want to help their kids to develop their RESILIENCE, but don't have the time or expertise to do the job as well as they would like to. It's ONE report per household so everyone can benefit from the REPORT, parents and kids.


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.


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.
