Sparky and Shady gives children the self-worth, self-awareness and self-management they need to reach their potential.

It is the only program of its kind that teaches children who they are, how they work, how to cope with problems and how to believe in themselves so they can live loving, happy and fulfilling lives.

After School Classes are limited to 6 children to ensure there is time for one on one with all children. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

In the nine lessons we cover

  1. Who you are
  2. Why you are here
  3. How your body works
  4. How your personality works
  5. How your thoughts work
  6. How your feelings work
  7. How to cope with problems
  8. How to believe in yourself
  9. How to follow your dreams

What your child gets from the classes

  • Self-awareness of how their body, personality, thoughts and feelings all work
  • To meet Sparky (their loving side) and Shady (their scared side) and knowledge to help them tell the difference
  • Strategies to self-manage their body, feelings and thoughts – ‘Short cuts’
  • A strategy that works to cope with problems, let go of ‘baggage’ and change unhelpful beliefs – ‘Pit Stop’
  • An opportunity to change unhelpful beliefs
  • Three secrets to believe in themselves
  • Three secrets to follow their dreams
  • A ‘Sparky and Shady for Kids’ or ‘Sparky and Shady for Big Kids’ book
  • A blank ‘Sparky and Shady’ workbook to draw and write in
  • 12 coloured ‘Lyra’ pencils and a pencil case
  • An opportunity to make new friends
  • A weekly game of the famous ‘Go home, stay home’.

What you get 

  • All the knowledge and strategies your child gets above
  • A blank ‘Sparky and Shady’ workbook to draw and write in
  • A PDF copy of ‘Sparky and Shady for Kids’ or ‘Sparky and Shady for Big Kids’ (depending on the age of your children) emailed to you prior to the workshop
  • ‘How to take a Pit Stop’ video to support you and your child to let go of ‘baggage’ and change your beliefs (emailed to you after the workshop)
  • Happy and loving children who are empowered to make good choices, cope with problems and believe in themselves!
  • An understanding of how your child works and strategies to use at home to help them cope with problems and manage their thoughts, feelings and behaviour
  • An opportunity to change unhelpful (Shady) beliefs.

NB – The Sparky and Shady program has the potential to greatly improve your child’s life (and yours too). You support your child through the program as it is presented at a kids level and then learn the psychology and neuroscience behind it at an adult level (while the kids draw or play). You learn how our beliefs, thoughts, words and actions directly affect our children and how some of our kid’s behaviours may be a direct result of our own ‘baggage’.

If you come to a workshop with an open heart, an open mind and a willingness to learn and apply some new knowledge and strategies (that are proven and effective) then you and your child will definitely get way more than your ‘money’s worth’!
