Learn how these Black Belt Moms managed their families, professions, and health during the pandemic and came out stronger than ever.
The moms that train at the Dragon Gym have become known as the “Mothers of Dragons”. Here’s an anthology of stories from a few of them to share insight into how they managed 2020, the coronavirus pandemic, and the associated tumult that all of our families went through.
A note from Master Somnath Sikdar:
Like most parents, you're probably looking for positive and productive activities for your children. And if you're a mom, you're likely responsible for the physical health and mental well-being of the entire family.
2020 and now 2021 have been unusual to say the least. You're responsibilities as a parent have at least doubled. (As a parent of a 1 and 6-year old, I can safely say 5 to 10 times!)
You're always looking for something that will keep them engaged physically, mentally and socially. Something you know is good for the mind, body, and spirit.
In many ways, the institutions we've relied on to help bring up our children are now gone or fundamentally transformed.
But, you're still looking for something that will help ensure that they're happy, healthy and successful in the long run.
You need to make sure they don't fall behind and lose everything they've achieved till now. You're looking for something that will serve all of your familial goals.
Honestly, we don't know if things will ever get back to "normal".
While the situation has changed, the challenges that our children face haven't gone away. In a sense, they've increased.
So, it's up to us, as parents, to find the best, most effective, and the most enjoyable programs for our families, and do that right now.
And, that's not as easy as it first seems...
Of course, it's a complicated choice and an important decision. So, we're here to help. Reach out to us at any time and we'll help guide you through the process.
I hope you'll enjoy these stories from the "Mothers of Dragons". They share their experience and insights from the last year and more.
