    Back to School Motivation for Children

    I always find it slightly amusing when I ask a class of students, “who’s excited about school this year?” More often than not, students respond with resounding groans, moans and utter discontent. Very rarely does a student express how amazing their experience is day in and day out! Why? Why are kids so unhappy at school? I’ve met so many outstanding teachers with rockstar personalities… It’s not like kids are walking in to Ben Stine from Ferris Buehler’s Day Off!!! The only reasonable answer I can think of is the OVERWHELMING amount of other stimuli in the world…From video games, I-pads and mind craft to the Sky Zones and Bounce ....

    How to Sprout a Growth Mindset in Your Child

    How to Sprout a Growth Mindset in Your Child& Why it will change their life.
    ==================== Kids with a growth mindset believe that they have the potential to be good at anything. Kids with a fixed mindset believe that their skills are based solely on who they are. ==================== Believing that you are only as good as your natural abilities can have a terribly detrimental effect on the ability to succeed in school and even in the workplace. Knowing that you can grow and overcome not only develops strong minds and bodies, but also tremendous confidence.

    5 Ways to Cure Homework Headaches

    Homework is often more of a pain for parents than it is for children. The battle. The negotiations. The whining. The attitude. It seems like it never stops! Let alone they ask you a legitimate question about the material itself (I’m in the firm camp that only 5th graders are as smart as 5th graders). However, arguing and screaming with your child doesn’t have to be the way. Here are a few things you can do in order to make completing homework a snap: 1) Make routine your friend. In today’s go-go-go family having a set schedule between all the things that your family does is often hard enough. However, having at least a partial routine during the school week can do ....

After all, too many children these days lead sedentary lifestyles that are detrimental to their health. However, if you are still trying to find the right activity for your child, here are five reasons why you might want to consider martial arts over team sports. #1 – They’ll Learn How to Defend Themselves If you ask any adult why he or she decided to enroll in martial arts classes, the vast majority will tell you that they did it to learn how to defend themselves.

  • Kids Karate  in Levittown - Amerikick Martial Arts - 10 REASONS MARTIAL ARTS BENEFITS KIDS


    Fostering Self-Discipline
    – One of the central tenets of all forms of the martial arts is an absolute focus on self-discipline. Today’s kids are so accustomed to receiving instant gratification that lessons in self-restraint and discipline aren’t always easy to come by. Kids with a martial arts background, however, are continually reminded of how essential self-discipline is.
    Boosting Socialization Skills
    – Kids who don’t always thrive in highly social environments may find it easier to get to know people and make new friends when they’re in a room filled with peers who share a common interest. The kids on the playground may not always have ....

  • Kids Karate  in Levittown - Amerikick Martial Arts - PARENTS AGREE


    Your kids have backpacks, books, pencils, paper, and new clothes. All of these things help them feel like they're ready to get back to learning after the summer brain drain. But do they have the ability to get through the jitters and worries to conquer the school day and ace the year? Confidence is the key to learning.

The Development of an "I CAN" attitude helps kids:
    Develop confidence in their abilities

    If back to school means back to bullying: What to do when a child is afraid to go to school.

  • Ice Cream In Your Gas Tank

    ICE CREAM IN YOUR GAS TANK One of the coolest experiences as a young adult is buying your first car: the new car smell, the rev of the engine, the luminescent dashboard and that liberating feeling of driving off of the lot. For at least the first couple of weeks, you take great pride in going to the grocery store, picking up milk, driving your friends etc. I remember that grown up feeling after leaving the dealership with my dad (I also remember that grown up feeling of my first car payment, ugh!!). Imagine for a second, taking your brand new car to the gas station and instead of gas, filling your tank with ice cream, chocolate syrup, whipped cream and butter. Would it ....

  • What does it mean to be in shape

    If you google “in shape,” you’ll find a wide variety of things. On one end of the spectrum, you’ll find a picture of Lou Ferrigno in his hay day. On the other end, you’ll find a yoga instructor sitting quietly in the park meditating! Throughout that space in the middle, you’ll find just about everything else!! So, when someone asks, “In your opinion, what does it mean to be in shape?” I often reply with a conclusive, “It depends.” J . The truth of the matter is that it does depend. It depends on exactly what you want and at what length you will go to get it!! For me, it’s all about art! It’s all about designing a picture in your mind of the body type that you want and working ....
