Life Skills Talk:)
This month at the gym, we are reviewing respect. The first week I handed out a worksheet. The worksheet is a wonderful way to get the kids encouraged to show respect and put to use what we teach at Gladiator Underground outside of the gym. The following is what we go over, and parents are encouraged to use it as well;
Respect is doing what’s asked of us, trying hard, saying yes sir, no sir, yes
maam , no maam. Showing respect at home to our families is a very important
part of lives at home. One of the best ways of showing this respect is to be a first
time listener. Learning to do what’s asked of us the right way right away is a critical part of us being respectful. For one consistent week practice first time listening at home.”
I know as a parent it can get pretty frustrating telling your child the same thing over and over again. That is why we are teaching them to be first time listeners. Giving them a simple saying like “right away the right way” is easy for your child to understand. It’s also a great way for you to remind them of what they learned when their listening starts to fall back on old habits.
More on respect next week and I look forward to seeing you on the mats!
