6. The difference between rights and privileges - As adults I think we get the difference much easier than children do.  A little education in this area can go a long way.  It is right to have clothing to keep your body warm; it is a privilege to have designer outfits.  It is a right to be able to communicate; it is a privilege to have the latest smart phone.   It is a right as a citizen of this country to have an education; it is a privilege to be able to participate in all of the extra-curricular activities.

To ingrain a new habit it is said to take 21 days of consistent repetition for it to become a part of you.  For this month’s challenge we are going to round the number up to 31.  For the next 31 days you are going to commit to training every day for a minimum of 15 minutes without missing.  This means Saturdays and Sundays as well. 


3 Critical Numbers Everyone Must Know for Healthy Eating… But Most Don’t

Posted: May 17, 2019

By Master Christopher Rappold  “Watch what you put into your body” or “You are what you eat” are popular sayings everyone has heard.  The challenge is that most of the undesirable ingredients that will pull you off track from your fitness goals cannot be seen.  Everyone has also heard that you are supposed to read labels; most though, are unaware of what the numbers mean.  


How Many Times Do You Tell Your Child,

Posted: May 17, 2019

By Master Christopher Rappold As a parent, it seems that we are faced with a never-ending surge of requests by our children.  Everything from “Can I have…” to “Can you drive me…” and “Can you buy me…”.  And just when you think they are tired or get the hint it is not working, all they were doing was catching their breath for the next round of requests.  With all these requests it seems there has to be a better strategy than simply and repeatedly saying, “NO”. I found a few simple strategies to alleviate you from sounding like a broken record and at the same time provide you the opportunity create teachable moments for your child.


Setting Yourself And Your Child Up For A Successful Summer Of Fun

Posted: May 17, 2019

By Master Christopher Rappold As with many parents, the feeling of summer and the children being out of school brings dreams of carefree unscheduled relaxation.  Days filled with sun, fun, contentment and laughter.  And while the season does usher in opportunities like this, being a parent for the past 16 years I can tell you it also can create, “I’m bored”, “There is nothing to do”, as well as a general slip in the positive lifestyle habits and routines that the school year helped to build.  Gone unnoticed, a summer can turn into a slide into a bottomless hole of Netflix and TV watching.   With this in mind, I wanted to share some advanced thinking so that you can be a step ahead in the planning process for your family.  Continuing with a theme I started in a recent blog, I do believe keeping yourself physically, mentally and spiritually growing is not a seasonal activity, rather it is a year-round lifestyle.
