Keep Your Child Motivated by Showing Your Belief
Posted: March 21, 2018
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.
