Word for the Week: Inspire
It’s back-to-school time. Our children started back to school on Wednesday this week. Back to the morning hustle and evenings of homework. One of my goals this year is to inspire my children. I want them to do their best in school because it’s their desire to be the best student they can be.
3 Ways to Inspire Your Children
Give Your Children a Dream
One way to be inspired is to dream and visualize what your life would be like if you accomplish a goal or complete a task successfully. To inspire your children to do well in school, you can help them focus on being the best student they can be. Or focus them on one or two favorite subjects. Maybe they want to be a scientist. Inspire them with visions of being a great scientist (even a great kid scientist).
What type of dreams would inspire your child to be a better student?
Talk and Understand What’s Important to Them
God has given all of us special and unique talents and gifts. We are not all the best in English or History, but most of us can do well and pass all subjects excelling in a few. Talk with your child and learn what subjects and hobbies are most important to them (video games and electronics don’t count unless they are writing computer programs an actual skill).
The more you understand what subjects and interests your child has in school, you can talk to them more about those subjects. For example, my son loves science and astronomy. When I hear about stars and planets we can see, I try to be sure we make time to see them (even if we have to get up in the middle of the night).
Encourage Their Natural Gifts
Sometimes even when our children have a natural gift, they don’t use it or develop it because they are afraid. Haven’t we all been afraid to use one of our talents at some time in life? Encourage your children to develop their unique talents and skills.
My middle daughter is very dramatic. As she gets older and is able to be in drama more, we encourage her to try out for the dramas and plays at school. My youngest daughter loves to run. We look for ways to grow and develop her running skills (she’s only 6 right now).
Take the time know your child’s unique talents and gifts and find ways to encourage and develop those skills.
How do you inspire your children to learn and do their best in school?
