    Resilience

    I was researching some topics for us to cover at our Teen Summit in August and I came across this article by John Cowan that discussed a topic that most of us don't think about when it comes to preparing our kids for life-Resilience. Check out what he had to say here:

    It Is Never Too Late To Try Something New

    I began my martial arts training with my son Stephen when he was in middle school struggling with peer pressure. I was looking for a way to build his confidence and never dreamed that I would find my life's purpose and passion.

    Ways to start teaching your children responsibility
