Overindulging Our Kids

Where’s the line in the sand that says we’re overindulging? What does it look like? Check out this article to learn how to keep a healthy balance.

You Can’t Always Win

A competitive spirit can be a great trait, but it can become difficult as a parent when your child doesn’t win. Emotions fly high and feelings are hurt. Children may easily become mad, frustrated, or sad. How do we teach our children about competitiveness and that they aren’t always going to win?

Breaking the Habit: Picky Eaters

We’ve all been there. Waiting an hour for your child to eat three bites. Listening to the never-ending, “I don’t want that, I want chicken fingers.” Hearing, “I’m full” after a few bites of food. Welcome to life with a picky eater! Check out our tips on how to break the habits of these picky eaters.

Why Taekwondo: Taekwondo is not all about kicking and punching. I think of Taekwondo on more of the values that are taught here at Farrell’s such as self-discipline for your own actions, respect to everyone that you see and the perseverance one takes through practice of Martial Arts which is why I am blessed to be a part of something so special!

Master Bishop has lived in Des Moines, IA his whole life and couldn’t be in a happier place. His family put him in Farrell’s when he was just seven years old back in August of 1998 and he is very thankful of his mother and grandmother for putting him in something that he truly loves to do every day! Being a part of my students’ lives six days a week makes every day unique and also challenging for me but couldn’t be any happier anywhere else! In Master Bishop’s spare time, he loves to teach cardio kickboxing classes also located at Farrell’s, going to the gym as often as he can, going disc golfing and also loves weather, especially thunderstorms!
