Don’t steal from your children – You Tinkers
The moment your child can tie their own laces, make their own bed and pack their own equipment before training. This should now be their responsibility forever more. Doing it for them is robbing them of responsibility and essential skills for life.
Don’t steal from your children – Start Young
You’ve no doubt heard someone repeat the following from someone, ive even heard this reported in the news. I mean the news report it as if a crime. That’s the sort of moral punch these actions carry

So the person sending these text messages and Facebook dear Johns learnt that behaviour from somewhere. I mean it must seem acceptable to them in some weird reality.
Don’t steal from your children – Seeing the lessons
I believe it boils down to responsibility and we start teaching that age 5 in our classes. Now here’s an example of how the above behaviour becomes acceptable.
James is 6 years old, he’s been at his martial arts club for a year now. He decides he wants to leave and try football. Nothing wrong with that. We all leave, I left my coach and he left his coach.
Now, when I left my coach I went to see him and I thanked him for his mentoring and passion. In fact, every single relationship I’ve ever been in when its time to move on I’ve made that dreaded visit and spoken face to face.
Don’t steal from your children – Take Responsibility
So James wants to leave after a year, so dad calls into the club to say he’s leaving. Now is dad going to tell James’s girlfriend they are splitting up? Or is dad going into work for James and telling them he’s got a new job.
Doubtful isn’t it, now I’m being silly but you get my point?
James aged 5 would be served well by parents if he were taught to speak to the people he’s in relationships with himself.

You get out of this life what you put in, I’m not on about hippy nonsense here.
Like push ups, you do sloppy push ups in practice. You get sloppy push ups as a result
