Behavioral issues can be one of the most challenging situations a parent can face. You love your child and know they have a kind and wonderful heart yet there are those occasions that they just frustrate you by completely being off their game.
I am going to discuss just one strategy for working on the challenge of ‘Behavioral Issues’. There are many things that could be causing this, but this is one that can really help, and I have found it effective through my 32+ years of teaching Martial Arts to children.
Consistency is extremely important in a child’s growth and yet I sometimes see families where the rules and consequences change based on what’s happening at the time. As Adults, we can deal with these constant changes, yet I have found that for children it is confusing and unsettling. Constant Changes seem to create a situation where children are not quite sure what the rules are and often test their parents to see if there are any boundaries or if they will get away this time without consequences. Sometimes they just don’t feel grounded and secure.
Have you ever been in a situation where you aren’t sure what was going to happen and felt very uncomfortable because of it? Well, children who don’t have consistent boundaries and consequences feel this way most of the time. Consequently, they act out to try and find where the boundaries are as they crave a sense of stability.
GIVE THIS A TRY
Create consistent rules for your family and stick to them.
Have consistent and reasonable consequences for breaking the rules.
Lastly and extremely important always talk to your child afterward and assure them that you love them but that the behavior is not accepted.
Hope this helps.

Chigong & stress, 05.23.22. The main pillars of Chigong are body, breath, and mind. When your body is relaxed your breathing will slow down. When your breath is slow, you will feel more centered, more calm. It harmonizes the mind and body to help relax the nervous system and improve focus. It has the ability to create a peaceful and energized state of being.

Chigong & intuition, 05.18.22. One of the best ways to harness your intuitive abilities is through practicing Chigong. Chigong is a powerful energy-based practice designed to align, balance, and expand the energy centers throughout your body through mind, body, and spirit. You learn to listen to everything around you, even in silence, deepening our intuitive skills through mindful practice.
MARTIAL ARTS IS A MANDATORY LIFE SKILL:
Activities and sports like Hockey, Baseball, Soccer, Gymnastics, Girl/Boy Scouts etc... are all great hobby’s and pass time activities and I let my kids choose whatever activities they want.
I categorize swimming lessons differently; swimming is a life skill and non-negotiable in my house. Sooner or later my children will be exposed to water, (be it a pool, lake, river or ocean) and not having basic swimming skills and confidence around the water will hold them back and could be potentially fatal. They don’t need to be Olympic swimmers but they need enough basic skills to tread water and survive but ideally are competent enough that they don’t have to be nervous or fearful around water.
Now apply that same filter to martial arts.
It’s a great sport, with all the benefits of traditional sports, but it also teaches self defence which is an essential life skill. In your child’s lifetime, they will almost certainly face the threat of physical violence (often unavoidably and through no fault of their own).
When you are attacked, just like in the water, it doesn’t matter how hard you try, without proper training and technique you will panic, thrash & most likely drown. We put our kids in swimming lessons to prepare them, so they can be in the water without fear and tread water if they get in over their heads.
The day your child gets confronted by a bully ask yourself; have you given them the tools & confidence to stay calm, protect themselves and survive or have they been thrown in the deep end to fend for themselves?
Martial arts is a mandatory life skill.🥋
