Self-Discipline For Children

Self-Discipline For Children

May 14, 2012

What is self-discipline?  Self-discipline has been defined as the ability to make yourself do what you know you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like or not!  A disciplined person knows what has to be done and does it.  They don’t put it off until latter or allow themselves to be easily taken off track.  And, most importantly they prioritize and focus on being self-disciplined with activities that move them toward their goals.  There’s a big difference between having self-discipline with tasks that don’t move you toward your goals and doing very well what need not be done at all.  It’s usually the more challenging activities and tasks that will help you reach your goals than those of less importance.  This concept is easily confused so be careful which activities you exercise your self-discipline in. When teaching children self-discipline it is important to have fun and keep in mind that the idea is to establish routines that are followed for the entire week without deviation or distraction.  We want our children to pick up after themselves, to clean their rooms without being told, to study and do their homework on their own, and to be responsible for their extra curricular programs as well.  We demand a whole lot from them! First explain to them that there are two kinds of discipline; Parent discipline- We constantly tell them what they need to do! And Self-discipline- They take care of certain things without reminders from us!  Sometime just understanding that can point them in the right direction!  Next list out all of their responsibilities that have to do with, school, home, extracurricular, and leisure time.  Have a discussion about all their responsibilities in those areas.  Then, with their input, teach them how to prioritize. In other words make sure they know that homework and studying are more important than chores.  Remember the self-disciplined person does the more important goal-oriented activity first. When your child understands what’s important by the goals you and him have set it will be easy to establish a comfortable routine for everyone to follow.  Your routine should include all the activities on your list. The more regimented you...

Grayson Vs Brookwood

Grayson Vs Brookwood

Oct 27, 2011

Some years ago, when I was in High School we had a relatively diverse and cohesive student body, but this new rivalry has created something amazing. Two Impressively Flawless and Professional Videos. Cliques have always existed just like the 80’s movies ‘Pretty In Pink’ and ‘Weird Science’. None more historically divisive than that of the three groups; Athletes, Musicians, and the Audio/Visual Club. Even though most schools had an innate allegiance to their aegis, there has never been such a memorable combination of all three groups, as both schools bring their Friday Night Football Rivalry to the world of YouTube and social media. Here is the original Grayson video that has almost 200,000 views! Brookwood Where You At? httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6NMA7lAnGs&feature=share and of course the reigning champions’ response. Grayson Step Your Game Up httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=On1uwi6UMgc&list=FLJIJsM-L8EKzEtdhE4Lq_fg&feature=mh_lolz …of course creative license defends all of the dangling prepositions in both videos and their...

9/11 Victory Run At Chastain Park

9/11 Victory Run At Chastain Park

Aug 31, 2011

Mark the 10th Anniversary of the tragic 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center at the First Annual 9/11 Victory Run around Chastain Park on Sunday, September 11. This will be a day to salute our veterans and soldiers, honor the lives of those lost on September 11, 2001 and celebrate the freedom we enjoy as Americans. The 5K Run/Walk starts and ends at the Ryan P. Means Legion Hut located on the South end of Chastain Park, off Powers Ferry Rd. All Proceeds will benefit American Legion Post 140, a treasured gathering place for veterans with a growing membership from those who served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Ryan Means was quite a man and truly an inspiration to others. After Ryan lost his best friend on September 11th in the World Trade Center attacks, he felt he had to do something. So, Ryan enlisted in the Army as a recruit and advanced to Special Forces by the age of 32. His motto was, “Keep on rockin’ in the free world.” While serving in Iraq, Ryan was diagnosed with cancer and on July 7, 2009, Ryan passed away. While he died too young at the age of 35, Ryan fought hard and was able to be at the birth of his second daughter right before he passed. WHEN: Sunday, September 11, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. WHERE: Ryan P. Means Legion Hut Chastain Park 3905 Powers Ferry Road Atlanta, GA TICKETS: Adults: $25 and Children 18 & under: $15 available...
