  • Self-Motivation and Direction

    I hope that this approach is also teaching them about personal responsibility. Do they miss karate now that they have moved on? Should they have stuck it out? If so, then we go back to karate, but this time with the awareness that the work will be done and then a commitment is needed. 

    Now that my oldest daughter has found her passion for singing, the practice time is something she enjoys immensely (most days). She has found a great deal of confidence in singing and looks forward to meeting with her singing coach. In previous activities, I saw the opposite happening. She would go to gymnastics for the class and we would leave with her trying to disappear into the back seat. 

    Of course, I let my daughter quit when she lost interest in that too, and I think I have happier kids for it.
