Helping our Kids Thrive with Shaista Fatehali | CNC84

Specific expectations and life, in general, can be overwhelming at times and can lead to anxiety in both adults and children. Helping our children cope with the stress they are experiencing is a priority! Shaista Fatehali, experienced teacher, certified life coach, and owner of Thrive Kids Virtual Early Learning Academy, joined me to discuss how we can better help our kids cope, understand, and alleviate the anxious feelings they are experiencing.

About the Guest:

As a Kindergarten teacher, Shaista has been working in the Delta School District for 16 years. She serves as a mentor teacher, a leader and facilitates initiatives for the District. Over the years, she has earned the following: Bachelors in Arts (Psychology) and English. (UBC), Bachelors in Education specializes in Early Childhood Education and English language learning. (UBC), Masters in Education, and Ph.D. candidate in Early Childhood Education.

Shaista is a certified children’s life coach and works with clients to build self-esteem, manage anxiety and develop the heart-mind. Shaista is the author of the book BACK HOME; which has received accolades nationwide.

She is also the co – host of the I am Mom Podcast.

Over the past 2 years, Shaista has developed programs such as The Thrive Kids Virtual Early Learning Academy, Thrive Mommy and Thrive Babies.

The Thrive Kids Virtual Early Learning Academy was born out of the need for young students to engage in a preschool curriculum from the safety of their own homes. Four days a week, students from the US and Canada join Shaista as she virtually teaches them academic concepts such as early literacy, early numeracy and soft skills such as collaboration, mindfulness and communication.

Thrive Mommy is a program that has been developed by Shaista, where she facilitates important discussions around mental health, coping strategies and finding purpose through passion. As a result of Shaista’s ability to target all members of the community, Shaista has been able to reach a vast array of individuals throughout Canada and the US.

Thrive Baby is a program that began as a direct result of the lack of accessibility to programs for babies and mothers born during the pandemic. Through virtual, live classes, video lessons and tactile sensory packages, Shaista has been able to fill a massive gap and dire need. Thrive babies, through the use of the sensory package, enables all participants, regardless of background, to come together, connect and learn as one with equal opportunity.

Helping kids and families THRIVE is her passion

About the Host:

Following the crumbs in the chaos is a full-time job as a Productivity Coach. As a busy mom of three and the founder of Chaos N’ Cookies, keeping moms from crumbling is my main objective. After gaining 10+ years experience as a Director of Marketing helping build multiple 6 & 7-figure businesses for other women I’ve created the Chaos Control System to equip moms to overcome their own objections so they can live the life they want to live and start that business they have always wanted. The Family Playbook, or standard operating procedure, is the tool every mama needs to save time and stress-less when chaos ensues at home.

For new biz owners, I also help simplify systems on social media and other business platforms to automate processes to get their business up and running quickly and efficiently with how-tos and hands on coaching. I have helped hundreds of women to be more productive and self-sufficient in their homes and businesses allowing them to reclaim control of the chaos.
