Hi, I'm Jussi a former pro snowboarder, a son of a factory worker and a father of a three year old boy. You're here because you love your child more than anything else. You want to see them succeed in life, avoid some nasty pitfalls and help them grow into an independent, loving, kind and committed adult. Are we on the same page here?
As a father of a three year old boy I know how hard that can be. The different developmental phases thrown at you just when you think you've figured it out.
First I was terrified knowing that my kid could seriously hurt himself falling down the stairs or running under a car.
As I'm sure you have also discovered we must let our kids make mistakes. That is an unavoidable part of learning. Perhaps the most important part.
I was fortunate to have parents who gave me a lot of freedom, trust and let me choose my sports. They were able to provide financial and psychological support that would help me cultivate a growth mindset.
Carol Dweck is Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and wrote an amazing book "Mindset". In it she explains how to grow children and nurture a growth mindset for healthy growth that leads to success in all areas of life.
I was fortunate to have parents who gave me a lot of freedom, trust and kindness. As a fairly new parent studying developmental psychology let me to the discovery of Esther Wojcicki the Godmother of Silicon Valley super stars.
She's a legendary teacher and mother of three extremely successful children, actors and business moguls. In her book "How to raise successful people" Esther Wojcicki shares her methods for raising healthy, happy, successful children using Trust, Respect, Independence, Collaboration, and Kindness: TRICK.
I highly recommend this to all parents. Whether it's for your own personal growth or for helping you become a better parent.
I'd like to provide you and your child with some amazing mindsets and mental tools for sports. Psychological techniques you can learn together to overcome fears, shyness, insecurity and gradually and safely grow confidence and improve in sports and in life.
