How to Push Your Kids to Better Education without Being Pushy
Posted: March 27, 2018
Educating kids can be difficult. Parents should know that it's not necessarily their fault if they struggle with this aspect of child-rearing. Kids are trying to establish themselves as individuals, are curious about the world, and many like to learn on their own terms. They can even resist something as positive as education if presented in a way they resent. Education is even more complicated today. Some of the most traditional educational models don't work for kids. However, it's still possible for parents to work around these challenges. They can help make their kids more educated and encourage them to go far without pushing them to annoyance.

Keep Your Child Motivated by Showing Your Belief

I've had over a thousand children come through the doors of ATA Excellence Martial Arts in Kendallville. One of the determining factors in which children reach the goal of Black Belt is you...the parent!
Our goal is for every one of our students to become a Black Belt. Many stay after achieving their first black belt (that's when the fun really starts) but there are also so many who quit long before they get close to the Black Belt level. Why? Because they don't believe they can really become a Black Belt and that belief is reinforced by parents.
Every child that walks into our school starts with the belief that they can become a Black Belt. That initial "Yes I Can!" attitude flame is an essential part of becoming a great future leader but it's often blown out by doubt and a lack of reinforcement.
