This is Denny Strecker with Prestige Martial Arts. Over the last 27 years
many parents come to me because their child seems to sit on the sidelines, so to speak.
They are really shy around people
Their child doesn’t make friends easily.
They don’t like to participate in sports or interact much with other children.
If they do participate in a team sport they often sit on the bench.
This can cause a parent to really worry about the overall happiness and well-being of their kids.
They wonder if their child will ever make good friends?
They worry their child might be lonely …or feel left out.
Or sometimes they just want to see their child have some good, old-fashioned fun.
In most cases, once a child has ONE good experience with a group of other kids – whether they already
know those kids or not, that child’s shyness starts to disappear …and the barriers start to come down.
And the more experiences like that they have, the more outgoing that child becomes.
This reminds me of a time a student came into Prestige Martial Arts.
His name is Zach M – and during his first lesson he hid under
His mom’s chair.
It took us a couple of more lessons to connect and work
With him, so he could feel good about himself. Within a short period of time, he was on the floor taking
Class with all the other students.
Fast forward 10 years later….He became one of our Instructors.
From shy to Leader. I know that training experience will forever
Impact his life in a very positive way.
Put your child in a group activity where they move and exercise and have fun.
Where the Staff is experts in connecting with all kinds of kids.
Where they aren’t singled out.
Listen you know what. The fact that you are watching this right now
Really indicates you are a dedicated parent
and that you REALLY care.
I just want to take a minute to acknowledge you
I want to take a minute to thank you – not for watching the video
But for being an Awesome Parent
I think you and I can both agree even though we have never met
That we live in a pretty good country And we could agree that our country
is made up of great people.
And because our kids are the next generation of people that will live in this country
By being the parent you are And by dedicating yourself to making sure that your child really makes the best
Decisions to be the best that they can be –
you’re really making sure that our country.
Is going to be left in the hands of great individuals
And that is truly something important.
So I want to offer you my respect and I want to offer you my support.
Until then – this is Denny Strecker singing off – and by the way. If you know anyone who might benefit from hearing this message please feel free to share this video
And please let me know if there is anything I can do to help your child avoid peer pressure?
