Learning About “Discipline”

Learning about “Discipline” this month at SMAKIDZ Academy 

“Discipline is the convergence of our ‘want,’ our ‘will,’ and our ‘won’t,’ ensuring that the power to impede is trumped by the power to achieve!” — Dr. Robyn Silverman – SMAKIDZ Academy  Child Development ExpertDrRobynQuote-October2015-PW

October 2015 is Discipline Month as part of SMAKIDZ Academy  Powerful Words Character Development program! All students will be studying, developing and experiencing powerful life lessons focusing on understanding the importance of training themselves to do what needs to get done, when it needs to get done. In addition to all of the physical skills that they’ll be working on this month, students will be discussing and practicing the following concepts both in and out of class:


  • Discipline defined: How do we use “I won’t,” “I will” and “I want” power?
  • Choices: What are the rewards of discipline & consequences without it?
  • Discipline skills: What helps our brains & bodies focus?
  • Work before play: How can people & teams become disciplined & successful?

“Discipline is crucial to helping children and adults thrive and become their best. Disciplined people train themselves to follow values-based rules that are enforced by themselves in a consistent manner. Whether these self-imposed rules are related to exercise, work, sleep or other areas of life, disciplined people do what needs to get done, when it needs to be completed.” says Dr. Robyn Silverman, SMAKIDZ Academy  child & adolescent expert, and creator of the Powerful Words Character Development system used at the facility.

Obviously, they’ll learn and perform better here, however, the benefits of becoming a disciplined person will aid them in school, at work and pretty much in every thing they do going forward.” We’re all excited to see the positive impact that this month’s Powerful Words Curriculum has on our students as well as on our entire community. That’s what it’s all about for us and we take this very seriously.


It’s a pleasure seeing our community recognized as a place with Powerful Character, and seeing our students lead the way! As this community’s premier Powerful Personal Development Center, we take this responsibility very seriously. We’re thrilled to help our students and our community to thrive and succeed, and Discipline month is going to help us to do just that.”


SMAKIDZ Academy’s strong curriculum and the Powerful Words Character Development system provide our students with the opportunities to become UNSTOPPABLE in life. These lessons will remain with our students for life and we’re honored to help them achieve the success that they deserve” says Sensei Darren .
