    Teaching Children Discipline

    Teaching Discipline

    Until now, these reports have focused on motivating children and building their confidence to help bring about success in martial arts and in life. I’ve shared my insights and explained how we motivate Aikido and Tangsoodo students and build success in our schools.

    Now, I want to shift the focus to discipline, an essential trait for parents and children alike.

    I find that parents sometimes shy away from the topic of discipline because too often, we associate discipline with the act of reprimanding a child for bad behavior. Scolding, punishing, getting angry — that’s how we tend to think of discipline.

    Unfortunately so. Because having a positive attitude toward discipline can help that child learn to internalize structure and walk the path toward an achievement-oriented life.

    So forget scolding and punishing. When you think about discipline, consider the positives:

    It takes discipline to save money for big goals, like a new bike.

    Practice makes perfect — and that takes discipline.

    New privileges come only when a child is disciplined enough to have good behavior on a long-term basis.

    Our martial arts school is well known for our emphasis on high standards and good discipline. In fact, we often call our school the “Academy of Discipline.”

    We have identified good discipline as a priority for our students and we all work hard to build discipline.

    Stay tuned for more information and techniques you can try at home to encourage good discipline with your child. In the meantime, reconsider your attitude toward discipline. It’s an important skill for life.
