Balanced Life Skills was established in 2003 as a martial arts school with the greater goal of helping parents bring out the best in their children. It now serves parents exclusively get through the struggles of parenting and children to work through the challenges they face. As the father of four children, Joe Van Deuren, recognizes that parents want their children to be safe, healthy, successful and happy; therefore our mission is about protecting ourselves from the things in life that hurt us the most. While self-defense from physical attacks is important, we also need to manage anger and stress and develop peacefulness if we are to lead our family to a safe, healthy, successful, happy life.
Mr. Van Deuren helps families develop personal peace and growth, bringing out the best in their children and themselves, with the practice of a balanced life. Developing family mission statements and naming family core values is the beginning, while you learn to use the Five Practices of the Gifts of Character. These practices will educate, guide and mold our children in a positive manner.
Mr. Van Deuren invites parents to reduce stress, by empowering them as individuals to live more authentic meaningful lives; helping families raise children of compassion and integrity, educators to create safe, caring, and high performing learning communities by offering personal coaching – one on one consultation and making group presentations on subjects that we face every day.
