It may sound like a punishment but, ask any parent who has done the same and they will likely tell you that their kids have thanked them, some a little sooner than others. Sometimes it takes a little time to admit that you like something that, before you tried it was the cause for many a tantrum… it soon wears off though;
Kids today need help
As a parent or guardian, it’s really important that you are in tune with the youngsters that are in your care, they are growing up in a world that is fast becoming very different to what most of us once knew. At one time it was the norm to go out after school or at the weekend and find things to do, games to play, even if it was a bit of mischief.
Nowadays, most kids are glued to some form of computer or device from the moment they open their eyes to the moment they fall asleep. Any chance they can get and, the device is there, in hand feeding them dopamine hits by the dozen.
The dangers of such behavior are already clear to see for most people although, sadly enough, some parents are just as hooked as the kids so, what chance do they stand? The most worrying thing, is that it’s not their fault!
Bullying isn’t even the same anymore
There’s no excuse for bullying and, it should be dealt with as soon as it becomes apparent although, that is becoming harder and harder to implement. Mainly due to the fact that it can be done anonymously, you don’t even know who the bully is anymore! It was bad enough if you were being bullied and you had to be presented with their face on a daily basis, at least you could hold somebody accountable. The form of bullying some kids have to put up with nowadays is despicable and, even more cowardly than it used to be.
It’s absolutely crucial that these kids have an outlet, somewhere that they can let everything out, somewhere like Muay Thai Reading where feelings and frustrations are dealt with in the best possible way, and, if the jobs done properly, they shouldn’t leave the gym after training.
Self-containment breeds illness
There is no question that bullies act the way they do in order to make themselves feel better about some kind of deficiency in their own lives, the knock-on affect to others can be devastating and will require intervention. Something like Muay Thai is the perfect solution for anyone that needs knocking down a peg or two or, needs to knock the living day lights out of a peg of two, either way, the answer is there.
