By Jess Burnett Founder of Mind Traction, Mum of 3 and Secondary School teacher Are you unknowingly limiting your child’s potential? Photo by Benjamin Manley on U nsplash I have yet to meet a parent who will stand up and say that they don’t care what their child’s future looks like and I don’t know a parent who is content raising a child who quits when things get tough. The reason for this is nature. It is because regardless of your childhood experiences, background and mindset, once you become a parent, human programming activates and you naturally want the best for your child, no matter wh ..read more

This is the sad reality of experiences written into the history books under the banner of ‘economic recession’. And, it is safe to say that the world is scared right now. Australia is the latest of a long line of countries to confirm that in 2020 they are entering a recession; it’s first in almost 30 years. Typically characterised by a significant rise in the unemployment rate, a recession is a per ..read more

By Jess Burnett Founder of Mind Traction, Mum of 3 and Secondary School Teacher Self-belief and self-confidence are two topics that are often lumped together. Not here.

When I listen to parents say phrases like the ones above, my heart breaks for that child, and I can’t help but wonder what other limiting beliefs these children have placed on them. I used to t ..read more
