Last year I shared with you a moment when a young boy stood up to his bullies. Little did I know at the time, that moment would go on to inspire the name of one of the world’s most unique and important online courses for kids.
UPDATE: THE COURSE IS NOW UP AND RUNNING.
The course is called Here I am!
Since last August, I’d been applying for government grant funding to build the course but after two attempts and two rejections, I decided to bootstrap the project myself and I’m glad I did. It’s given me total control to create the course that truly reflects what I want to say and how I want to say it. This is a Josh Langley course in every aspect.
- Here I Am! helps kids accept themselves for who they are.
- The course focusses on developing self-acceptance, emotional and mental resilience, creative expression, and empathy.
- 28 videos x 4 minute videos + plus fun and easy writing or drawing activity.
- Watch one video per day (in morning preferably) for the duration of the course.
- Once course is finished, all the videos will be free to access and can be used as an emotional and mental tool kit.
- I’ve designed the course to be inclusive for all kids regardless of background, life circumstance, neurodivergence, disability or LGBTQI identity. Preferable age is 5 to 12.
- Based on my Being You is Enough children’s book series.
- Price; $147 AUD
- Released March 2021 – available now
I’ve trawled the internet for similar courses that focus on self acceptance and resilience, I’ve yet to find one. Maybe you know of one? Let me know with a comment below.
What kids will learn from Here I am!
They are enough the way they are.
It’s Ok to be different and how their difference can be a superpower.
They are important to the world.
How to work with anxiety, anger and other big feelings, resulting in less meltdowns.
How to find an outlet for their creative expression and to use their imagination.
Empathy and compassion for themselves, other people, animals and the planet.
Inner resilience, helping them to bounce back from setbacks.
Mistakes and failures can be opportunities for learning and growth.
Techniques to avoid over thinking.
That no-one is perfect.
Develop a sense of gratitude.
I can’t wait to share Here I am! with the world and help as many kids embrace themselves for who they are and hopefully reduce the rates of depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts these young people have.
