This place is amazing for Tae Kwon Do classes . At Atomic, it doesn't matter that I'm not the best or the strongest; I get as much encouragement, praise, and individual attention as any black belt. My instructors are truly invested in my success, and it shows in every class. They push and inspire me to train to my full potential--nothing is more valuable than that. The best part about this place, however, is making so many new friends who have become so dear to me. I love my Atomic family!

We began a few months ago and already our son has quickly picked up on the necessary focus and protocol for martial arts. He truly enjoys the instructors and each class provides a new approach to skills that extend beyond the mat. We love this place!

I’ve been taking my boys to Atomic for about 3 years now and love it there. Master Bart and Dr. Luiza are two amazing instructors who have a staff of instructors that are just as warm, friendly, and knowledgeable as they are. Master Bart and Dr. Luiza have gotten to know my boys so well, I trust them inherently with the boys and have even consulted with them for advice about my boys whenever I need some feedback or input. I love watching my boys progress and seeing how happy and proud they are to accomplish goals and move forward with each belt they earn is what it’s all about. I highly recommend Atomic Tae Kwon Do!!

EDUTAINMENT- Entertain while you Educate

Be the parent your child needs you to be. They need you to be in their world. That means interacting and playing with them on their level to prompt them through the tasks and chores they don’t want to do. Here are some tips and examples on using effectively using edutainment with your child.

1. Practice Healthy Competition
The child brain loves novelty. That is why healthy competition and games get them excited. You can help your child accomplish the daily tasks they do not necessarily want to do by adding a fun edutainment component.

 

 

Edutainment in daily tasks may include incorporating a game or competition into their nighttime routine to prompt them to get ready for bed, pick up their toys, or brush their teeth long enough.
For instance, when it’s time for bed, create a healthy, fun competition that gets them excited. You might tell them, “Okay! It’s time to get ready for bed! Let’s see who can race to the bathroom the fastest!” Once this task is completed, follow up with “Who can get their toothbrush out and put the toothpaste on the fastest?” or “Who can brush their teeth the longest?” For tooth brushing, when you know the two minutes is up, you can finish first, allowing them to win the competition of brushing for at least two minutes. Then, follow up with how surprised or excited that you are that they won.

 

 

2. Be Playful with Your Child
Your child is not going to behave all the time. They are not perfect. When your child throws a temper tantrum, is upset or is insistent on something, add something playful to the mix that takes their mind off it.
If my son throws a temper tantrum, sometimes I pretend in a silly way that I am falling and hurt my foot and he laughs. Or, if he sits in a chair that I specifically told him that I am going to sit in, I playfully act like I am going to sit on him. He likes the silliness, and it detracts and redirects him away from his original temper tantrum or negative behavior.

3. Think Outside the Box
Playfulness and silliness work, but other times creative solutions help your child accomplish their tasks and chores. Homework is one thing that your child may not enjoy. Think outside the box to what excites them and incorporate that into their homework time.
Younger children love tents, so building a tent or fort in the living room together where they can go to do their homework is an exciting way to mask the doldrums of homework. For teens, coffee shops are common favorite hangouts, so going to one where they can have their favorite coffee drink and do their homework is a treat that they will look forward to. Both scenarios change your child’s negative outlook on homework to something positive.
How edutaining are you as a parent? Whatever your level, you can better implement healthy competition, fun, and creative approaches to motivate your child. A child’s way of interpreting things is rarely ever black and white, usually because they are not eager to learn. When you edutain, you help them learn in a behavior that they embrace.

Wishing you Health!

Dr. Luiza and Master Bart
