Why do I love doing school holiday library events so much?

Because parents are there too.

They get to hear about what really matters in life, not just the kids.

Normally during my school visits, it’s only the kids and teachers who hear my messages, but during the school holiday library workshops, parents always stay around, and for that, I’m so grateful.

Parents hold the key to reinforcing my messages back at home.

It’s okay to be different and be who you are.

It’s okay to make mistakes and learn from them.

What opportunities can be found in failing or experiencing disappointment?

How to use gratitude to regulate thoughts and emotions.

There’s no such thing as perfection – Practice makes progress.

Even cool kids have to poo – how to avoid constant comparisons.

The importance of talking about our feelings.

Really simple ways to show kindness and empathy.

Using the power of their imagination.

Home is where the rubber hits the road with all this stuff.

Sure, most learning is done in school, but it’s in the midst of the weeds of daily life when what I talk about really matters. What I talk about also applies to adults, but kids can absorb it easier as they don’t have the deep conditioning of idiocy we have.

It’s about planting the seeds of good mental and emotional well-being now so kids can better navigate what life throws at them later on.

It’s what all parents want for their kids.

And I make it simple for parents to make it happen.

That’s why I write my books, create my video programs, in person courses and do my kids and parent talks. This stuff shouldn’t be hard or complicated – because lives may depend on it later on.

So, parents, thank you for coming along to the school holiday library sessions and for everything else you do. You rock!
