Mind Ninja: What Are Teachers Saying?

Introducing Mind Ninja Online

Mind Ninja Online Is My Entire Program Which Teaches Children, How Special They Are, How To Manage Their Difficult Thoughts And Redirect Them. 

It Teaches Children To Focus On The Present Moment, Rather Than Being Obsessed With The Past Or About Worrying About Future Events. It Gives Children A Memorable Formula To Use When Things Go Wrong Which Will Work EVERY TIME. 

I Teach Them That If Something Goes Wrong They Have 3 Choices. They Can Leave The Situation, Accept The Situation Or Change The Situation. Mind Ninja Is Fun And Addresses Issues Such As The Fact That Sometimes You Are Upset And You Feel Like You Will NEVER Be Happy Again But That You MUST Remember To HANG ON...Because It WILL Be OVER SOON! We ALL Need To Remember That.

What I'm About To Teach Your Child Could Change Your Child's Life Forever.

I Passionately Believe That Every Child Needs The Strategies In This Course And Will Be Changed Forever As A Result. Parents Often Benefit Personally From Mind Ninja If They Choose To Do The Program Too!!

This Is What I Was Born To Do.

My Mum Taught Me To Love Children Unconditionally (My Dad As Well....But He Mostly Taught Me To Be Funny :)...Which Is Another Reason Kids Listen To Me...Thanks Dad)..

Life Lessons Australia
Mission Statement :)
Life Lessons Australia has a single mission at the very heart of everything we do: to develop and enhance the emotional fitness of children. While working and training across the childhood (primary) education and psychology fields for over 20 years, one lesson has always remained constant: when children feel good about themselves and respond to others with kindness, they can achieve great things. It is with passion that we empower children, promote their self-esteem and teach them strategies to improve their emotional health and mind management.

Joelene Lavrick
I have a passion for emotional fitness and social skills. I have always wanted children to be kind to each other and to have confidence in themselves. I understand that children make mistakes and, at times, they need to learn how to be kind to others. I am patient with kids and I believe we must show unconditional respect and forgiveness.

A Sneak Peek To What Is Inside The Course

Thought Catch

So, How Do You Help Your Gorgeous Child Overcome Excessive Anxiety, Anger Or Sadness??

I Can Help. I'm Joelene Lavrick, B.A (Psych), GradDipEd

I Have Taught Thousands Of Children How To Manage Their Thoughts And Emotions Like Anxiety, Anger And Sadness With Outstanding Feedback From Parents Which You Will See Listed On This Website.

I Was A Primary School Teacher For 20 Years And My Main Passion Was ALWAYS Making Sure That Children Knew How Special They Were And That They KNEW That How They Feel MATTERS. After Struggling For Most Of My OWN Life With Horrible Feelings Of Anxiety, Anger And Sadness, I Discovered That It Didn't Have To Be That Way. There Is A Better Way. 

I Have Held Hundreds Of Workshops For Children Throughout Australia And Presented 7 Professional Development Workshops For Educators, Psychologists, Therapists, Principals And Allied Health Professionals With ACT For Autism In The Past 2 Years, With 94% Of Participants Rating Our Course As EXCELLENT. 

My Program Has Been Featured TWICE On GWN7 NEWS And Reached The Semi-Finals In The Curtin University, School Of Education, Teaching Excellence Awards In The WA Regional Achievement & Community Awards.

Sometimes Children Seem Programmed Not To Listen To Their Parents...

"It's the parents' job to teach children to manage emotions and be resilient"...that was a comment I once received on a facebook post BUT I don't completely believe that is true...because kids often do not listen to their parents on these matters. My own daughter listens to her teacher way more seriously than she listens to me, so we need help with these things. 

I Don't Know Your Kids, But I Love All Kids And I Know Exactly How To Teach Them The Value Of Who They Are. I Can Teach Them How To Manage The Hard Times In Life, Whether It's Finding School Work Difficult, Other Children Being Nasty At School, Or Simply Their Own Self Doubting Thoughts!!!

Children Doubt Themselves So Much And Even Though, As Parents, We Try To Tell Our Kids How Special They Are And How They Can Handle Difficult Situations, It's Not Always Easy To Get Our Own Kids To Listen To Our Advice (Even When It Is Really Good Advice). I Didn't Listen To My Mum's Kind Words Growing Up So I Grew Up Thinking Everyone Was Better Than Me And Was Constantly Anxious.

The #1 Fact Your Child Needs To Know In Order To Be Happier And More Confident, More Often!

In The Years I've Spent Developing Mind Ninja, I've Learned That The Simple Solutions I Offer Are Often Not Obvious To Others. I've Learned That Once Children Know A Range Of Strategies To Manage Their Emotions, Know How Special They Are And That The Opinions Of Other Kids Don't Matter Even Remotely As Much As They Used To Think They Did, They Are SO MUCH HAPPIER.
I'm Not Going To Tell Your Child That They Are More Important Than Other People Or That The World Revolves Around Them....BUT They DO NEED TO KNOW That They Are EQUALLY AS GOOD As ANYONE ELSE In This World. We All Need To Know That.

Don't just take our word for it, read our participants' comments below:

"Joelene is one of those teachers who finds a way to connect with each child. Students are drawn to her because she individualises every interaction in a purposeful and positive way. She values every child for who they are, and students seem to sense that. On a professional level, Joelene has a rare and unique set of skills that enables her to achieve optimum outcomes. Combining these skills with her passion for teaching positive thinking strategies and resiliency skills to produce Life Lessons Australia will be an experience I would strongly recommend to any of my students and friends' children.
On a personal level, Joelene has worked with my son on a weekly basis. Despite his social and communication difficulties, Joelene has managed to help him overcome his anxiety and he now waits at the window for her to arrive. The contribution she has made to his emotional welfare and showing him a happier way to perceive the world is simply priceless and will help him for the rest of his life."
Dr Gemma Foxall
I am a teacher who has worked in a range of different year levels. I have been looking for something that would benefit my students to support their emotions in the classroom and playground. When I came across Life Lessons Australia: Emotional Fitness and Mind Management I was excited to implement this in my classroom to give my students the skills they needed. My children loved the lessons and activities that are provided in the course. They look forward to every lesson during the week, screaming out 'YAY' when we start each topic. Everything is easy to follow and gives step by step instructions and key focus areas to speak about. Over a few short weeks my students we able to use the skills and were applying them in the classroom and in the playground. When I listened, I could hear them thinking out loud and talking with each other using the language from the course like 'hmmmm how can I fix this?" I found myself dealing with less upset children and my students over time became happier within themselves but also believing that they are unique and special. Not only has this benefited my students but it has also given me common language to use with students, parents and other teachers. I have had many parents comment on the simple steps that I have taught through Life Lessons Australia: Emotional Fitness and Mind Management, with each saying that it has helped them at home. I currently teach 5 years olds and next year will be teaching 9 year olds. Joelene has created a framework that can be used with any year level or age student. I can't wait to teach my next class these skills! I cannot recommend this course to educators enough. Finally I have something that I can teach my students that actually works and seeing the change in my students is all worth it. Thanks Joelene!

"Thank you so much for giving your time so freely and energetically to our senior classes. Jodie and I appreciate the planning and effort that you put into our sessions, especially the YouTube session which was above and beyond.
I can see that some of my kids have benefited already, are using some of your strategies and are keen to tell me when they do. Even an old dog like me learnt some new tricks!
I wish you every success with your sessions to help young people deal with anxiety and the feelings of inadequacy which is becoming more prevalent in youth.."
Primary School Teacher

"Miss Lavrick helped Kai develop strategies to acknowledge and manage his emotions. The lessons helped Kai to reframe his thoughts when feeling anxious and challenge some of his rigidity in his thinking around emotions due to his Autism diagnosis. Joelene developed a strong and responsive connection with Kai, gaining his trust and building his confidence. We can’t wait to continue working with Life Lessons Australia."

Module 1 - I Love Me

On completion of Module 1, children will have an unwavering sense of their SELF-WORTH. This is the DRIVING FORCE behind the Mind Ninja Program. They will realise that they are unique. They will know that they are equally 'as good as' anyone else. They will have a new technique for reminding themselves always, even when they are not surrounded by their loved ones.

Module 2 - The Thought Catch

Module 2 is the POWER PACK of redirecting unhelpful thoughts so that the mindset can grow, change and improve.  Children learn to interrupt negative thoughts in their tracks and discover that you should  N O T   B E L I E V E   E V E R Y T H I N G   Y O U   T H I N K !

Module 3 - The Power of Now

Mindfulness plus! What's wrong right now? Nothing. Children learn a rock solid technique to stay focused without being distracted by dwelling on past difficulties or future catastrophes.

Module 4 - Leave, Accept or Change 

An ACTION PLAN for when things go wrong. Life doesn't always go the way we expect it to, and for children, this can be a source of upset. Let's rectify that in Module 4 with a formula for making a positive decision no matter what the circumstance may be.

Module 5 - The Magic Words

Let's look at language. The words children choose lead to their emotional responses. Module 5 will alleviate the stress caused by having a set language pattern which is unhelpful. If children use phrases such as 'this is so unfair, I can't stand it', 'I will never forgive that person' or 'Everyone hates me' ...this module is the key to change.

Module 6 - HYGO Japanese Relaxation Technique

This is a GAME CHANGER. Instead of hitting someone or making a HUGE mistake when ANGRY or UPSET, this technique will provide children with something positive and calming to do whilst they work on shifting their hurt feelings. Once learnt, it can be instantly implemented in any situation.

Module 7 - Fake it 'Til You Make It

Similar to biofeedback, physiology and the way we stand and move significantly affects our emotional state. The opposite of ANXIETY is CONFIDENCE. This module will have children stepping out with a new, powerful spring in that step.

Module 8 - Class Actions

A culmination of positive action. EMOTION and MOTION are clearly linked and Module 8 will have children firing on all cylinders ready for the day ahead. 

We Just Don't Know What Our Children Are Thinking...

I Know, From Experience, That Kids Spend Hours Thinking About Horrible Things And Doubting Their Self-Worth.

Schools Do A Great Job Of Teaching Children A Range Of Skills But There Is Limited Time In The School Day And Academics, Of Course, Take Precedence.

These Challenges Explain Why So Many People, Including Myself, Get To Adulthood Not Realising Their Value, Having NO IDEA How To Manage Their Difficult Thoughts And Emotions While Struggling To Form Any Decent Relationships...

My Degree In Psychology, Experience As A Teacher And Genuine Love For Children Led Me To Resign My Permanent Teaching Position At An INCREDIBLE School To Start Life Lessons Australia And To Teach As Many Children As I Can, That They Can Improve The Way They Think, Improve The Way They Manage Challenges And FEEL BETTER MORE OFTEN. They Don't Have To Give Up So Easily And Get Upset At The Drop Of A Hat.
While I Don't Know Everything There Is To Know About Mental Health, I Know A LOT—Especially When It Comes To Making Sure That Your Child Knows How Special They Really Are.

Imagine What It Would Be Like To...

... Drop Your Children Off At School And Know That They Are Feeling Better Than They EVER HAVE

Know That Your Child Has A Solid Understanding Of Their Worth Which Has Not Just Been Told To Them By You (They Always Seem To Believe It More When It Comes From A Teacher - I'm A Parent As Well So I Have Experienced This First Hand).

Have Your Child Actually Tell YOU How To Deal With Challenging Situations (This Is A Common By-Product Of My Course)

Watch Your Child Respond To A Situation Positively, When You Know In The Past They Would Have Had A TOTAL Meltdown Over The SAME Situation

Look at what Just a FEW of The Parents Are Saying!

I'd Love You To Read The Feedback Of Some Of The Parents Who Have Completed My Course. I Receive Messages Like This Every Week. It Fills Me With Joy And Keeps Me Going On This Mission With Mind Ninja And Life Lessons Australia. 

I Communicate In A Kid-Friendly, Fun And Memorable Way. It Is What I Have Been Doing For My Entire Working Life.

Mind Ninja will transform the way your child deals with their difficult thoughts and emotions filling them with confidence. They will be forever ready to accept new challenges with a range of strategies available to them. When they do get upset, they will understand that it is temporary and that it will be over soon. Life is full of ups and downs. My job is to ensure your child can manage and go through the difficult times so that they can enjoy more positive life experiences.
