At the beginning of the new school year I introduced my girls to the Cool Cats Leader Deck. We use the cards before school to review the important characteristics of a leader. It has been a great conversation starter for us, and I love that it is another tool for me to use as a parent. Teaching my girls to be leaders and independent thinkers is one of my top priorities.
So when my daughter came home with an award for being the most respectful in her class, I was one proud mama. The very next day my other daughter came home with a note from her teacher stating she was very kind to another student in her class. One of her friends was having a bad day and she offered her own teddy bear as comfort. The teacher was most impressed by her empathy and understanding of her classmates feelings (another proud parenting moment). This is not an exact result of using the card deck, because I know I have worked hard to teach my kids these characteristics. I think using the cards routinely keeps these traits front of mind for my kids. The cards make it easy to review!
Today, you can all enter for a chance to win a Cool Cats Leader 3-Pack! This amazing set includes a copy of the Growing the Leader in You book, 22 Easy Ways 2 Lead Card Deck and a Top 10 Tips for Leadership poster. All of it will soon belong to ONE LUCKY READER!

One of my bestfriends is a teacher, I will share this with her. I think her students might like these too!
I bet they will enjoy them!
These sound really great. When my daughter was in public school, her school was a Leader In Me School, it focused on all the concepts of teaching kids to become leaders.
Teaching leadership concepts to kids is such a positive choice. These cards sound like a great tool to use with your kids to encourage leadership skills.
What a great skill for kids to learn at an early age. Unfortunately, sometimes kids who are leaders get labeled as bossy and that makes me so sad.
These are definitely fantastic skills for kiddos to be learning…. Thanks for sharing this product!
These seem so great! My daughter is only 4 but I think it can never be too early to start teaching these concepts. I had never heard of this before, but I may need them !
I can already see leadership qualities come out in my son. These look like a great way to encourage those qualities to grow and develop! What a great giveaway.
This is an amazing opportunity for the kids to learn . I think this will to allow then to maximize learning.
I would love to get this for my youngest. I’m sure we’ll make the most out if it.
This sounds great, I had never heard of this before. I think it would be helpful for my girls to learn about what it takes to be a great leader.
I think a good leader knows how to listen and is always respectful to others. This would be great for my grandson.
Making a good leader is listening to what the followers want!
Somebody that listens and responds with kindness. Someone that enjoys their position and enables people.
Being organized and having patience
I think that I am a great leader because I try to strive for the best outcome while being fair. Working hard, having fun, and still being able to remain focused on the end goal is important!
Leadership is a good quality, it teaches children how to direct and to be strong in their goals.
A great leader has the ability to listen and learn
A fantastic leader is someone who listens an can help others easily.
Someone that leads and doesn’t follow. Someone that takes charge.
A great leader is someone who is willing to do whatever he or she expects of his or her subordinates.
I agree. Little ones may not understand that until much later in life. These fun sets help lay that foundation.
I’ve never heard of this company before. It sounds like a great set of leader-building resources, though!
Oh Id love this. My little ones would really love it, and I think learn a lot! Such a great idea, and great way to learn!
This sounds interesting and it is important that children learn to be better leaders as well as independent!
Cool Cats sounds like something all kids should be using. Anything that teaches good leadership skill and empathy is severely needed in these days.
This is so neat and a fun way to incorporate learning valuable leadership skills at home. It’s always great to hear your child is being kind at school.
This sounds like a great tool for all parents. We need more kindness in the world and teaching our kids is a great way to start making those changes.
