Resources to keep you informed


When your child makes the same poor behaviour choices again and again it can be very frustrating for you as a parent. However, the better we respond the better the results we can expect. The better we respond and reinforce good behaviour skills, the better the results we will see in our youth’s decision.


People do not react in a certain way unless they have had practice. Practice verbal de-escalation and ways to create or close the distance between a would-be attacker. Or better yet enroll your child in a bullyproof or martial arts program to learn all the skills they need as well as grow in confidence and self-esteem.


Bullies like isolation. They look to isolate the weak from the pack so if your child stays with their friends and knows the best places to go in groups they lower the chances of being bullied. What if they don’t have a group of friends to hang out with? Work with them to develop friendships. Even one friend can go a long way to preventing bullying.


A new study shows that Martial Arts has positive benefits for improving your attention span and alertness. Something in today’s ‘no patience’ society is sorely needed. A large part of Martial Arts training is developing your mental acuity as well as your physical strength.


One of our many jobs as a parent is to push and challenge our children to experience new and sometimes scary situations so they can grow and develop essential life skills.

Karate for teenagers

The benefits of karate for people of all ages are well documented. Beyond just good fitness it gives you valuable self-defence skills, challenges the mind and gives a great sense of life balance. This article includes five clear reasons why Karate may be a great activity to get involved in.

Creating a stimulating learning environment for private music lessons

As a private music teacher with a waiting-room area for students, I set out to make it a welcome place where some undirected learning could happen. Have a look at these tips for how you can create a stimulating learning environment for your private music lessons.

How to avoid kids' birthday party pressure

With the rising popularity of Pinterest, today’s parents are under more pressure to create the ‘perfect’ party for their child’s birthday than previous generations of mums and dads. Sure, our parents had books of party ideas and our Grandmothers the Ladies Home Journal, but advice on how to throw a memorable child’s party has truly reached new heights with the advent of Pinterest, Google image search and niche parenting blogs.

The Importance of Creative Arts for Children and Teens

Teaching children about art is a good idea. It's been proven that early exposure to visual art, music, or drama promotes activity in the brain. Creating art is a fine way for children to make choices and solve problems. Every step involves making a decision: what colour to use, how to make a line, what size something should be. With every choice the object becomes more and more their own.
