My grandson Mason is a student here. He loves going to class and has gotten a lot out of the experience. His mother was so impressed that she also joined as an adult student! They are both continuing to advance in class and rave about the staff. If you’re looking for a place to go, this is it!

Amazing instructors (and instructors in training)! They will meet your child where they are at and work from there, the change and confidence increase you see almost immediately is amazing. We plan to be at The Pound for a long time!

5 Ways to Raise a Disciplined Child

Raising Disciplined Children

 

Parents, do you find yourself asking your children the same questions over and over?

Did you brush your teeth?

Did you pick up your toys?

Did your trash make it to the barrel?

Since the day children are born, we, as parents want to raise them to be self-sufficient and independent. In order to achieve these expectations, discipline must be built. Discipline is training your mind and body occurring to rules or for smaller children can be explained as, doing the things you are supposed to do, even when you don’t want to.

Below are some tips for building discipline for children

 

  1. Be a Role Model- Children often learn best by watching, if you are acting confident, positive, and controlled, your child will most likely adapt and follow.

  2. Set Limits and Develop Routines – Routines and schedules are very important in any child’s life. They give children a sense of security and some control over what they have to do and when they have to do it.

 

  1. Teach Constructive Criticism- Children have to be able to hear corrections without becoming defensive or responding in a negative manner. By speaking with your child about the importance of  providing feedback in a non-threatening manner children will begin to hear feedback in a helping manner.

 

  1. Provide Positive Praise-  Praise is a simple but  effective discipline strategy that increases good behavior. Pointing out when your child is following the rules or telling him that you appreciate his compliance will motivate him to keep up the good work

 

  1. Enroll in Activities- Sports and activities require self- discipline, as well as provide a positive and fun outlet for your children. They teach children how to work together and build responsibility and accomplishment.
