Children’s learning patterns and abilities are very diverse, therefore we are proud to have developed our peer-to-peer strategies suitable to expand the mind of all children. Our mission is it to bring greater mental and emotional well-being to children from 4-10.
Resiliency Training – How it works
Our peer-to-peer instructional videos create the foundation for children to build character, strengthen self-esteem and resiliency. By self-regulating their own emotions they score a major victory as awareness practice is built. The floodgates of growth open up once practice and awareness come together. There are clinical studies measuring the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of implementing a daily mindfulness practice.
Similar to the process of learning to ride a bike, the more you practice, the easier it gets. Before long, these lessons become second nature and suddenly our students natural state changes for the better! Once children become aware of how to stay calm and centered, they thrive to become unshakable! They understand the amazing power that’s now within reach. Being emotionally agile in turbulent times is probably the greatest gift we could give our children.
Why Peer-to-peer Learning?
Real U offers a simple method of practicing daily resiliency and mindFUNness skills through a peer-to-peer video-guided training. We’ve selected our first trainer Danica (11) to teach children from 4-10. Our web-based program is easily run and accessible without intensive training.
Our peer-to-peer learning approach allows children to easily learn from one another. The mindfulness “teacher” is the video guided program. When children learn from one another, they’re more engaged in the learning process. Much of it comes down to the fact that this group shares similar experiences, and these common experiences provide significant benefits. Creating a comfortable peer-to-peer learning environment, enables our content to take on new life. Children relate to and quickly gain trust in another child who can understand and appreciate them.
Although peer-to-peer learning has been used in schools for many years, this peer-to-peer video approach is the first of its kind! As studies have shown, children are more engaged and receptive when learning from other children.
By creating entertaining and engaging peer-to-peer videos, children unknowingly are tapping into the inner-workings of their true selves. Our approach will empower these future leaders, strengthening what they’ll find to be, REAL “Superhero” skills!
Superhero Training – How it works
Kid’s Love Superheroes, so we’ve created a series of superhero videos directed at children ages 4-10. These engaging short videos (5 to 10 minutes) will subtly instill self-worth into children’s lives.
Our viewers are introduced to age-appropriate leadership skills that provide them with a powerful tool-kit.
Regular exposure to these videos will embed “life nagivation skills,” that serve your children greatly. We are thrilled to provide and serve the next generation!

Who Is Behind The Scene?
As a child, Wade was labeled with a reading disability, this label etched a level of empathy within him that runs deep. His misplaced self-worth created unnecessary stress and disconnect in his life. He leaned into overachievement in athletics and business with hopes that this would drown out his false beliefs. What may have appeared to others as a constructive approach to evolve, was without question, an unhealthy and unbalanced approach to life.
Through his evolution, he’s come to believe that a child’s mind is like a new computer, devouring all information that crosses their path (good and bad). At a child’s early development stage, they are desperately seeking guidance in hope of formulating an identity that will serve them.
Our studies have shown that by the time a child reaches the age of 18, they’ve heard (don’t do or don’t say) over 150,000 times, compared to less than 2,000 words associated with encouragement, self-worth, and belief. This ratio raises havoc on a child’s subconscious mind as they seek to mold their identity. We have the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to reinforce a child’s unconditional self-worth, through our mission!
Isabella has been working with children since she can remember, babysitting the neighbors’ kids, working as an aupair and studying Early Childhood Development. Growing up as the youngest of five children always made her feel like she didn’t belong. Starting in Kindergarten she struggled to fit in, as she wanted to play with the gigantic playhouse, rather than sitting down doing exercises in the workbook, which she wholeheartedly rejected. That early experience really shaped her trajectory and created the belief that she was a “bad” student.
It wasn’t until her mid-twenties that she stepped out of this belief “she can’t study well” and started going back to school to learn more about Early Childhood Development. And for the first time she realized that she was a “good” student and realized that she enjoyed studying! She knew that if she could learn more about Early Childhood Development, she could help others that had similar experiences than her and prevent future generations to go through this struggle. She learned that our early years are the most influential ones, where we form our habits, thinking patterns and self-beliefs. This realization explained why she had thought so little of herself for so long.
She was determined to share her findings with the world and her passion grew when she met Wade. After masterminding together, Wade and Isabella realized that their vision was in great alignment and together they created the Real U, empowering children around the world, giving everyone the chance to thrive!
