    Why Martial Arts Kids Are Like Kryptonite to Bullies

    At Bucksmont Tae Kwon Do and United Sports Tae Kwon Do, our students take an oath before and after every class. They say: I shall observe the tenets of Tae Kwon Do I shall respect my instructors and seniors I shall never misuse Tae Kwon Do I shall be a champion of freedom and justice I shall build a more peaceful world. We teach the skills to fight. The kicks and punches we teach can cause real damage. That's not what we want. Kids fight because they are scared. Scared of not being seen as "cool" or "tough." What we want is for kids tohave the confidence to walk away. The best fight is the one they are able to avoid. But, if they must defend themselves, do only what is necessary ....

    Parents' Role in Zero-Tolerance Policies

    Hey Parents: I want to share some valuable information that I hope that you will share with your children. If you disagree with me, let me know. I’d like to hear from you. We teach kids how to defend themselves. As part of that, we instruct them to walk away from confrontation when they can. When they can’t, do no more than is necessary to control the situation. It is important that they control their emotions and call on their skills to protect themselves if, and when necessary. Zero-tolerance policies that exist in many school systems have wonderful intentions. If you fight, everyone gets in trouble. Here is the problem with that. The ....

    Establishing School Year Sleep Schedules in August

    Summertime is coming to an end. For many children, it is incredibly stressful knowing they will need to make new friends, meet new teachers, earn good grades, etc. Plus, there are social worries like having to be “popular.” It important for parents to remember that these feelings are very common, and even the most well-adjusted kids are bound to feel some sort of pressure when they return to school. While I have not seen statistics, I would not be surprised if pediatricians see a significant increase in reported cases of stomachache in September. The question becomes: what can parents do to help their children cope with the physical and emotional stresses associated with ....

    Top Tips for Making Friends in the New School Year

    Hey Parents: When I was 16, I read Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People” for the first time. The book had a profound inspiration on my interest in interpersonal communications. While written over 80 years ago, these principles are timeless. We teach them to our students to help them to develop social skills, and to prepare them for adulthood. Hey, they don’t teach this stuff in school. Right? The sooner that kids begin to understand (and practice) these principles, the greater advantage they will have compared to their peers who did not take the time to learn them. Lots of people are smart. Lots of people work hard. Often times the ....

    Teaching Children To Self-Soothe with Their Breath

    Hey Parents: Does this sound familiar? You are on the phone. You just need 5 minutes more to finish your call. And all you hear is “Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom!” How often does this happen in your home? Your child (age 4+) is feeling frustrated, tired, or angry. They melt down and have a fit because they don’t yet know the tools or have the experience to handle those emotions. The bad news is that I can’t prevent all tantrums. (I’m not that good). But the good news is that I can offer a tool to replace or at least add to your current responses to these situations. Instead of saying, “Wait” or “Not now” or ....
