Zachary has been participating in a Little Dragons class at a local Martial Arts studio for a few months now. He's really taken to it, especially the kicking, punching, and yelling. It's really cute!
The studio (and I suppose Martial Arts, in general) are very big into respect, for others and for self. Each student pledges to "do my best" before class. It's a concept that has really hit home for our family and Zachary.
So now, when he's feeling nervous about doing something new and/or scary, we just ask him to try his best, and remind him that we will be proud as long as he does. This has really motivated him, and increased his confidence. We couldn't be more proud!
