Parenting Tip of the Week

 in Bradenton - Ancient Ways Martial Arts Academy

Many don't realize it, but most kids who rebel as teenagers or even act out as younger kids, do so because they are making a subconscious play for power. The easiest way to do that is to act up with people who are going to forgive them and love them anyway. They are subconsciously trying to get a reaction, and any reaction will do, including punishment. Defiant, rebellious teenagers would never treat their friends like they treat their parents, they would end up friendless, but their parents will always love them and subconsciously, they know this. Parents are safe targets for these power plays. Teenagers who trained in martial arts as kids, have a higher level of self-confidence and find no need or drive for those subconscious power plays. As a parent of two teenagers, both Black Belts, I can tell you without a doubt, it works.
