Establishing a solid support system at home

Here at Stapleton Family Karate we would like to take a moment to talk about the key to raising a well-rounded child. We believe that it is to establish a solid support system at home so that they grow up satisfied with achievements and ambitions. The goal as a parent is to help your child feel competent and confident, and to help them develop a sense of passion and purpose. It’s the education that happens before he or she sets foot into school that is crucial in bringing up such a child.

If you want to enhance your child’s learning abilities to eventually boost their academic performance, it will take consistency, dedication, and patience. Consider these techniques if you’re looking to raise a child who is well-balanced, healthy, and happy with their accomplishments.



Applaud and Praise Efforts

Research has discovered that a person’s mind-set can influence behavior. When it comes to parenting,  it is suggested that you  praise your child for his hard work instead of labeling him as “smart” or “talented.” People with a fixed mind-set are usually reluctant to take on challenges because they believe their achievements come from innate abilities. Those with a growth mind-set are usually more willing to face challenges with hard work because they believe in always learning new skills. 


Encourage Special Skills

Every child has unique gifts and talents. These special attributes can show up in a traditional school setting, but there are plenty of children who shine after the final bell has rung for the day. Activities like a martial arts or karate lessons can open their minds. You can also find this a good  a hobby for yourself. Allowing your child to see you trying something new may inspire them to do the same.


Respect Different Learning Styles

Just because you need complete silence while typing an e-mail or balancing your checkbook doesn’t mean your child needs a noise-free environment when doing his work. Martial arts classes offer a unique 

Opportunity to children and adults of all different learning styles.
