Are You as Distracted as Your Children
Posted: May 24, 2017
One of the most common reasons parents enroll their children in our martial arts program is focus. Rarely does a week go by when I don't have a phone call from a mom asking if we have experience with kids who have ADD or ADHD. (The answer is YES, we have lots of experience.)
Martial arts is a perfect activity for children (and adults) who have issues with focus but we are just one tool in the tool box for helping. One question that you need to ask yourself when dealing with an unfocused child is, "Am I as distracted as my child?"
You see, most behaviors are caught, not taught. Children learn by example and you are their greatest teacher. Here are a few tips to making sure you're modeling focus on your child's life.
