A Gift that Lasts a Lifetime

As adults, we struggle each year with the materialism of the holidays and the need to convey the deeper meaning of Christmas, Thanksgiving, Chanukah, and other winter observances. We hope to inspire empathy, kindness, love, and charity in our children, and instill a yearning to make the world a better place all year long. We […]

Being Thankful: Lead by Example

In a materialistic world, we sometimes let reality get away from us and end up dwelling on the things that we don’t have rather than the blessings that we do have. We dwell on how our possessions define us, when what defines us is not what we own, but how we are. It matters more […]

5 Bad Mental Habits to Break Right Now

Everyone has bad days, but sometimes you can find those bad days piling up. You can also find yourself falling into bad habits that make everything harder to deal with, hold you back, and bring you down. If you feel down and blue all the time, talk to your parents, or another adult you trust. […]

Having a Safe Halloween for Kids of All Ages

Halloween is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year. So many adults have wonderful memories of great costumes, trick or treating, Halloween parties and even (not pointing fingers) TP’ing many a house on Mischief Night. However, I have some very sobering statistics for you, and we need to talk about making Halloween Night […]

Fear of Failure and Why It’s Wrong

  Often, nobody is harder on you than you. It’s the way we’ve been raised, to fear failing, that one failure dooms us to “suck at doing ____” forever.

How to Bully-Proof Your Kid

Bullying has become an all too accepted fact of childhood. The way that we deal with bullying is changing, but not quickly enough to save the lives of some bullying victims. The hesitance of children to confide in adults is the fault of adults; all too often adults do not take bullying seriously, or children […]

5 Reasons Why Martial Arts are Better for Kids than Team Sports

The benefits of sports for boys and girls are very well documented, but there’s debate of how good team sports are for children. I am the first to say that if a team sport is something your child is engaged in, happy with, and enthusiastic about, by all means continue. However, the experience that many […]

5 Reasons Why I Keep Practicing Taekwondo

Taekwondo is popular with young adults and children, but I’d like to take the time to talk to the adults. A lot of you are looking at taekwondo as a good activity for your children, but seem to rule it out for yourselves. I can understand why, with work and family obligations, you might feel […]

What Is Good Sportsmanship?

Looking around, the world is more in need of good sportsmanship than ever before. The definition of sportsmanship has been buried by a culture of winning at all costs. This culture is not only about being poor losers, but poor winners as well. Unfortunately, adults – parents, coaches, and teachers – bear a huge amount […]
