It is very hard to understand how kids act and react at certain points in their life long journey to becoming mature. For instance, in classrooms kid’s tend to wonder off into a daze imagining things instead of listening and taking notes. However, given a Math problem, doing spin kicks or playing their Xbox, their mind goes to work. Fingers start moving, their focus and awareness is at its max etc..
Why do kids lose focus, when and how to get their attention back and keep it:
After teaching over 1,000+ at AmeriKick Martial Arts, it stereotypically seems to be that kids only focus longer on things that are interesting (eye-catching, physical fast movements and mind exercising materials) .
For home chore’s and homework related activities, you should add a goal to their finish (a prize of some sort; if it no longer works, it’s time to put your kids into karate). Remember, the prize doesn’t have to be something big or expensive, but something that is very big in value to your kid’s. (Your not going to karate, I’m telling sensei that you are failing in school, thus not graduating to your new belt, etc) These are sentimental values that mean the world to your kids. Our student’s receive achievement stripes for doing chores at home, academic stripes for high grades in school. Give your kids what they want and need: Karate, self-confidence and discipline!
Public and private schools teach kids about book smarts, we teach our students about LIFE smart! Karate is NOT a seasonal sport, it is a LIFE Lesson!
