How Can I Support My Child?


As a parent, you no doubt want to help your child succeed in anything they do. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

1. Encourage your child! Try to praise their effort more than their ability.

2. Provide your child with a safe place to practice at home. As with any other skill, repetition is needed to master skills. You can help to keep your child accountable for this practice, but remember—practice doesn’t make perfect; perfect practice makes perfect!

3. Take class with your child! You have the rare opportunity to participate in an activity along side your child. Not only will you reap the benefits of training for yourself, but you’ll be creating life-long memories as you accomplish goals together.
