What harm will come from missing a few sessions?
Over a year, not much if your child is regular to the classes and does practice at home.
The problem can the forming of a new habit to replace the habit of regular training. As adults, we all wish at times that we didn’t have to go to work, wash the dishes, walk the dog, go shopping, go to the gym, etc. As adults, we know that we have to. No work, no money, no clean plates, nothing to eat off, no dog walk, an overactive dog, no shopping, no food, no gym, health suffers.
Parents know best
As a parent, it can be difficult to convince a child that continuing with a martial art will benefit them, not only now but into their teenage years and adulthood. The lure of playing on a gaming console or watching the latest series on Netflix can leave you frustrated. Have you ever monitored the number of hours spent on these activities/devices?
Keeping a child to a routine of martial arts training, just like going to school, is very important to their continual development, not just within their chosen martial art discipline but also into adulthood. As parents, we have to make the right decisions for our children, even if they do not see the benefits right now.
