    Five things that can make you a better parent right now

    By Meghan Leahy July 20, 2016 Since 1998, I have worked with hundreds of parents. As a teacher, school counselor, parent educator and currently a parent coach, I have taken note of what makes some parents more effective than others. Effective parents are not measured by any of the cultural standards that we seem to be working toward these days. They come from all walks of life and have followed many paths to parenthood.

    Boxing Is Fun
    Enjoying something is probably the number one reason why anybody ever got good at anything. The one thing boxing has over fitness exercises is FUN! If you ever plan to be successful at anything, it has to be fun. Otherwise, it becomes work, becomes a chore, and you’ll quit before you ever get a routine going. This is the problem with most workout routines. Literally EVERYONE I’ve seen that puts on a pair of gloves for the first time has fun. Hitting the focus mitts becomes a game and they enjoy the challenge. There so many pieces of equipment in the gym and so many skills to master that boxing never becomes boring. Even after the boxing session ....
