“Instead of sweeping praises, encourage children using descriptive and specific comments...Point out a specific aspect of the child’s performance and describe what behavior led to good results. Specific and descriptive comments signal you have paid attention, and you really care.”
“Self-confidence rises out of a sense of competence. In other words, kids develop confidence not because parents tell them they're great, but because of their achievements, big and small. Sure, it's good to hear encouraging words from mom and dad. But words of praise mean more when they refer to a child's specific efforts or new abilities.”
“Taekwondo...is an excellent means to get good physical activity, it will help children develop mental acuity, it lets kids naturally develop confidence in themselves, and finally the structured nature of the classes promote focus and respect.”
“Gymnastics is one of the most comprehensive lifestyle exercise programs available to children, incorporating strength, flexibility, speed, balance, coordination, power, and discipline. Whether they are involved in recreational gymnastics or with a competition squad, skills learned in gymnastics can benefit a child’s overall development.”
“Guidelines from the Department of Health and Human Services say that children and adolescents age 6 and older need at least an hour a day of physical activity. Most of the hour should be either moderate or vigorous aerobic activity. In addition, children should participate in muscle-strengthening and bone-strengthening activities at least three days a week.”
