Attitude Books Foundation inc. – our Not For Profit organisation: 2015–2020

Building childrens resilience
Five years ago, Attitude Books Foundation Inc. was established with the aim to help achieve a goal that was set back in 1998 when A for Attitude book was first published; ‘Every year, every grade 3 child in Australia receives their own copy of A for Attitude’.
After significant effort from our current and past board members, we have achieved many things – but not that ambitious goal. We did however, land amongst the stars…So many stars – teachers, principals, parents, children, psychologists, therapists, counsellors, clergy, local businesses, grandparents, doctors, Rotarians and Lions Club members, journalists and a couple of politicians – have all helped us along the way.
Thank you to everyone who has purchased, promoted, shared, discussed and sponsored the book. Many thanks to our long time business friends who sponsored us from Day1. And thanks to the generous and dedicated individuals who have served on our Board, making it possible for this NFP organisation to exist.
Feedback over the years testifies to the significant difference A for Attitude has made in the lives of many children both here in Australia and in many countries around the world. And that’s very gratifying.
While ABFI and our campaign will wind up next month, the little book will always be available here on this website.

Just as a child's body needs nourishment and exercise to stay fit and healthy, so does their mind! 

The earlier in life that your child receives 'positive mental nutrition', the happier, healthier and more successful they are likely to be.

Prevention better than cure



“Begin with the end in mind”, so picture this...

Way ahead in the future, when your child turns 21, is he or she likely to be:

• optimistic and resilient?
• capable of solving his or her own problems?, and
• good at managing money and managing without it?
