HOW CAN YOU HELP?

  • Help your kids learn to do things. At every age, there is something new to learn. Help your kids to identify these things and master them. They can be simple tasks like getting themselves dressed or riding a bike.
  • Praise your kids when they do a good job. If they do well on a test or go up a belt rank, let them know how proud you are of them. Kids thrive on positive reinforcement.
  • Tell your kids what you love about them and what makes them special. Choose a variety of things so you’re not just focusing on one area.
  • Be a good role model. When you have confidence in yourself, your kids will follow suit. Be kind, treat others with respect, and watch as your kids mimic your actions
