Hey Parents, Stan Tabor here from Life Skill Martial Arts. Over the last 30 years we’ve been helping parents help their kids grow stronger physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. I get to talk to a lot of parents and it seems like the stress, worry and anxiety level of parents is really high right now with regards to bullying.
Kids are being bullied in their neighborhoods, being bullied at school, they are being bullied on social media. You and I both know when they get older, the bully they have now wont exist anymore. But to a child, its their world right now and they don’t know how to deal with it.
The good news is there are some tools your child can learn to help reduce the effects of bullying. And there’s one character trait in particular – and its called CONFIDENCE.
This reminds me of a story of a little boy who came in with his mom and it seems that this school year particular was really difficult for him. Some kids at school were being mean to him, bullying him and he was taking it really hard.
He did not wanna go to school, he was withdrawing, and his mom wanted to explore the idea of using martial arts to help him.
Within a short period of time he started to stand tall, hold himself differently, smile more, he started to make friends. Everything seemed to change for him.
And is now in our Leadership Program and doing Great!
Confidence won’t eliminate bullying, but it refuses the effects of it. When your child starts standing tall and smiling, it sends a different message to the world.
Here is my challenge to you:
Over the next 24 hours do nothing but encourage your child to stand tall, make eye contact and smile, and every time they do it give them a high 5, give them a hug and a kiss. Tell them you love them. It’s parental support that matters. Let them know that you are their Biggest Fan!
Kudos to you for watching this video. I know all parents really love their children, but, not everybody’s going to do what it takes to help them. Congratulations. If you find any of this useful, share it with your friends.
This is Stan Tabor signing-off – until next time.
Have a great day!
