Simon Benn, The Children’s Happiness Expert, showing parents how to make their children more resilient, confident and happy with fun activities. I also show parents how to bullyproof their kids so others don’t pick on them and can’t upset them.
Simon talks about bullying and how we can change our perspective by acknowledging that it's just a thought. That bully’s negative voice in our heads, the inner critic is not who we are. The ‘not good enough’ beliefs are picked up along the way from others comments. We compare ourselves to others. By helping the child build resilience - they learn not to listen to that inner critic, not to listen to the bully. By building their self-worth and self-esteem then recognise what the bully says isn’t true.
My mission is to support parents who want to make sure their children are happy.
I do that by using what I've learned working with over 1,600 children in over 50 schools and 22 years in educational publishing.
I was a mostly happy child apart from being bullied for my buck teeth at school and at scout camp where an older boy's cruel humiliation made my life a misery. I left university in 1989 and went into the family educational publishing business.
We published 8 million copies of Roald Dahl’s Guide To Railway Safety to stop children playing on railway lines. And also created materials for BBC, Thames Water, WWF, Tesco, Vodafone and hundreds of other large organisations.
I took over the business in 1995 when my parents retired. The business became my life and its performance decided my mood.
I worried constantly about failing and even when success came it felt hollow. So I got into personal development to find happiness, eventually sold my business and become a coach.
I started working with kids in 2013 and found my true vocation – inspiring kids to be happy and working with their parents to do that face-to-face, on the phone and via Zoom/Facetime.
