Testimonial – Combined Martial Arts Little Tigers Early Learning & Character Development Program

Feedback from one of our Little Tiger’s mother. Oliver has been a part of the CMA Family for over 12 months now and will be graduating from the Little Tigers program after his next grading. This is what his mother has to say:
“Since Oliver joined Combined Martial Arts, we have observed a positive development in Oliver’s behaviour. He is very attentive to others and shows an increased awareness of safe play. He is often heard to be telling other children not to fight and not to bully. He shows an incredible amount of respect to us (his parents) and his friends and family; this makes us very proud as parents. I do believe that Combined Martial Arts has played a huge role in this, and has been essential to his development.
I just want to thank Bill Wakefield and the Instructors at Combined Martial Arts for doing an amazing job with my child!”

When can a child use a public bathroom by themselves?

Parenting Tips Blog – When can a child use a public bathroom by themselves?

As a parent, you should always know where your child is, what he or she is doing and with whom. Unfortunately, it is virtually impossible to ensure that you child will never be a victim of sexual abuse. Children can’t stop sexual abuse, but adults can.

Answer: This is a question that comes up frequently when a parent has a child of the opposite gender and he or she needs to use the bathroom. Around age 6 or 7, children can use the toilet by themselves without any assistance. When it comes to allowing a child to use a public restroom by himself, however, the issue isn’t about ability as much as it is about safety.

Child safety experts generally agree that most kids are not able to handle an emergency or threat to their safety until around age 10. That’s why it’s best to avoid letting your child use public restrooms in large areas, such as those found in stadiums or movie theatres, or bathrooms with multiple entrances, without you. Either take your child with you to the bathroom you use, or better yet, try to find a family restroom. (Women’s restrooms offer more privacy than men’s, so a dad traveling alone with a daughter will face a trickier dilemma; in that case, finding a small restroom, where he can closely monitor his daughter from outside the door would be the best bet.

The same goes for using public bathrooms in smaller areas. For instance, if you are at a restaurant where there is a small restroom with one entrance, you can let your child go in alone but under close supervision: Keep one foot in the door so that you can keep talking to your child. Have him or her use a stall close to the door. And be sure to remind your child not to talk to anyone or let a stranger approach him while he is using the facilities.

Today’s realisation

When we were younger, life seemed easier. But the truth is life still is easy. It always will be.
But the only difference is that we’re older, and the older we get, the harder we make things for ourselves.
We blame others, work, kids, our partners and the universe itself for our hard life.
But you should sing your own song, write your own destiny; health & happiness is in the palm of your own hands.
