Dear parents and/or Guardians
How Can You Help
When a student in our school accomplishes their first kick or punch, they begin to build confidence. They have to be persistent, practice and stick to it to get
better. At times, they may get frustrated, angry and even feel bad, but we do what we can to help them understand that their persistence is going to pay off.
As a parent, you can instill this same feeling of not only self-confidence, but self-esteem. Don’t do everything for your children; help them accomplish things themselves. Give them some age appropriate chores to do. Initially, they may not enjoy it, but they will feel great after it’s complete and see how happy and proud you are of them.
Allow them to fail at some things so that they can |continue working for a successful outcome. Teach them it’s ok to make a mistake sometimes if they learn how to correct it.
Help them recognize their great qualities and how
important it is to not only use them, but share them.
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.”
— Henry David Thoreau
