  • Get your Kids to Listen Part 3

    Tip #3 Assuming Kids Can Empathize At our martial arts school, we actively teach the concept of empathy to our students. The reason we do this is because empathy is a learned behavior that develops over time. Lambasting Johnny about his messy room and guilting him into cleaning up is not an effectivestrategy. "I work all day, and I come home to your room being messy? Don't you care at all?" Statements such as this will make Johnny feel guilty and will also put you in a negative mindset. These feelings could lead to resentment on both sides. Do not assume that your young child knows what it is like to be at work all day or to juggle multiple responsibilities. At the end of the ....

  • Get your Kids to Listen Part 2

    Tip #2 Stop Nagging I have never met an adult who likes to be constantly reminded of what is wrong, what can be done better, what shouldbe done, etc. Kids do not like it either. "Johnny, why is your room not clean?", "You always leave a mess", "I am tired of your messes around the house", "We are going to be late, because you are not cleaning your room and we are not leaving until it is clean." There are many problems with this type of communication and it can result in kids who lack confidence. The underlying tone to many of these nags is that there is something wrong with Johnny. More likely, there is a problem with this parents communication skills. Similar to the tip ....

  • Get your Kids to Listen Part 1

    For years parents have told me that they want their child to listen and follow directions. Karate training does help a lot of kids develop better focus and attentiveness, however, as parents, we can alsodevelop better communication skills. This article is the first in a multi-partseries designed to help parents communicate with their kids more effectively. Tip #1 SHUT UP! If you know me, you also know that I do not like the term "shut up." I use it here to get your attention and to help prove the point I am about to make. Often times parents over talk their points to their kids. I am not suggesting that you are rude to your family, I am advocating that when correcting behavior the ....

    Yankee Doodle

    No doubt this Fourth of July you will be somewhere and hear Yankee Doodle playing. It could be at a fireworks show, sporting event, or even in a commercial on TV. The song is a classic that has its origins in our Revolution. According to history, the song had many derivatives before becoming the familiar tune we know today. The term Yankee Doodle was actually an insult that British Troops would use to describe the colonists and the song itself is intended to offend. In the tune, the Yankee Doodle Dandy is an ignorant country bumpkin of low class. He sticks a feather in his cap in an attempt to appear a more fashionable and higher class citizen than his upbringing would dictate. However, ....

  • Avoid the Summer Slump!!

    Educational professionals state that our long Summer vacations from school in the U.S. lead to a “Summer slump,” where students regress in the skills they developed over the previous school year.Research supports theirconcerns showing that summer loss equaled about one month of classroom learning with math skills taking a harder hit than reading. Why does this happen? For one, the kids are simply not exposed to the same level of stimuli over the Summer as they are in the classroom. Reading is a daily activity, even if it is off the side of a cereal box. However, many young kids do not practice any math skills over the Summer. Also, with the Summer heat kids are ....
