Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about myHappymind.
myHappymind is delivered by class teachers in school. All of the lessons are pre-made requiring very little prep time. We recommend teaching myHappymind once a week at the beginning of the week and then reiterating the concepts throughout the week through regular teaching and learning.
Absolutely, we have a separate curriculum for all children from Early Years through to Year 6. Each year builds on the last to ensure full integration and embedding of the learning.
All of our lessons are short and sweet, and usually between 10-15 minutes each. We recommend you do 1-2 lessons per week minimum. They can be easily slotted into your daily routine AND you can do them on the go as long as you have a WiFi connection. The habits that you will learn take between 2-5 minutes each to practice. So, if you really can’t find 30 minutes a week to spend on the program, it may well not be for you.
This is not a problem at all. The kids’ lessons are written in such a way that you can go into less or more detail depending on their age. Remember, you will learn a lot more detail in the Parent module than the kids will need and so you can scale up and down depending on the needs of everyone. We really believe the best approach is to do this as a family as this is the best way to embed the habits. We have families with kids ranging from 4 to 12 and they’ve made it work. You will have all the content for life when you purchase so there is lots of chance to recap, review and reiterate if you need to.
We have intentionally structured the program so that you go through the program first to build your knowledge and confidence. By the time you get to the kids’ lessons you’ll already have all of the knowledge you need to teach them. The kids’ lessons are structured in such a way that they are very simple and interactive so all of the content they need is in there and your role is to facilitate the conversation. We’ve tested the content on tens of thousands of children and we know it works.
The standard Families membership is for one year, though continued access is also available.
