Kids and Sports: Fundamentals First


Would you hand a child calculus problems once she was able to count to ten? A geometry text when he began to recognize shapes? War and Peace as soon as she could recite her ABCs? Of course not! Not only is it preposterous to have such expectations of a child, but also it sets up the child for failure - and, most likely, a dread of and distaste for calculus, geometry, and reading.Yet all too many children are enrolled in gymnastics, karate, dance classes, and organized sports before they've mastered such basic movements as bending and stretching, walking with correct posture, and bouncing and catching a ball.

Why A Father Is Not A Dad


It can be said that any man who procreates is a father, whether present in that child's life or not.

Is Your Child Becoming A Praise Junkie?

Five Ways To Build Super-Strong Relationships With Your Children


One of the questions I ask in parenting presentations is "How do you show your children you love them?"Participants usually cite verbal and physical ways of showing affection as the most common means of showing love. These ways work well for children of certain age groups and children with those relational preferences, but how do you relate to a child or young person who becomes a 'conversational clam' or one who doesn't like physical closeness?Conversely, it is easy to miss the relational signs of children if their ways of relating fit outside our frame of reference.
