Wisdom For Motivating Kids

Everyone enjoys life more when they have goals and dreams that they want to fulfill

Children thrive on wisdom.

Kids are spiritually nurtured by it.  In other words, wisdom, presented in a way that they can really receive, is inspiring to children.

We provide wisdom to kids in two ways: through what we say (when they are old enough to comprehend our words well enough) and through what we do.

One form of wisdom kids benefit by receiving is the wisdom healthy ambition.

As it says in the Wisie for Children, The Value of Ambition:

The big word – ambition – means that you have get-up-and-go power.”

So teaching children about ambition passes on to them “get-up-and-go” power.

What do you want YOUR child to be ambitious for?

In other words, what goals would you like your child to be self-motivated to pursue?

We instill the wisdom of healthy ambition by pursuing OUR goals in a healthy, balanced way.

If we strive in stress, anxiety, frustration and fatigue, we make ambition “look bad”.

Here is another inspirational quote from the Wisie for Kids video, The Value of Ambition:

“Everyone enjoys life more when they have goals and dreams that they want to fulfill.”

Inspiring children with the wisdom of ambition requires that they see ambition as a key to a happy life.

When I see my almost 9 year-old resisting doing a chore or his homework, I help him to feel motivated by suggesting that he make the work FUN.

I then offer to join him, to assist him, to WORK with him to help to see that working hard can be fun.  In other words, I try demonstrating healthy ambition.

What are YOUR goals and dreams?  Talking about them with your child in a way that expresses your enthusiasm for them is a way of passing healthy ambition onto your child.

In this blog, share your thoughts and questions about inspiring children with the wisdom for kids that relates healthy ambition.

Kindness Inspires Hearts of Children

motivation children

Our kids need to regard their own feelings as important if they are to relate with other children, and even pets, with sensitivity

In the Wisie Inspiration for Kids video, “Choose Kindness, the child is reminded: “Kindness makes hearts happy.”

We parents need to remember that kindness also makes our children feel INSPIRED.

Just like adults, children need to feel inspired to deal with the challenges THEY must face.

To do their best, children, like adults, need motivation.

Children lose motivation when the feel heavy-hearted.

We adults often seem to think that kids have no real challenges, compared to those that we must face, like making a living, keeping the home in order, and dealing with the children.

But children don’t really have it that easy:

  • They feel frustrated by all they are unable to do
  • They are sensitive to all the pain felt by those around them (even when they do not show it in obvious ways)
  • Being teased, left out of a game, feeling overlooked in class, messing up in sports, coming in second or even last place in ANYTHING, can drain inspiration from kids.

It’s important that we do NOT minimize our children’s emotional suffering while making our own emotional needs seem all-important.

In what instances do you find it most challenging to
relate kindly with your children?

In what ways do YOU support positive motivation in your children?

In this blog, share your thoughts and questions about the wisdom of
providing children with a sufficient amount of inspiration.

Our kids need to regard their own feelings as important if they are to relate with other children, and even pets, with sensitivity.

When we treat children unkindly we risk teaching them to believe that they are unworthy of kind treatment.  This sets them up to gravitate toward other children who do not treat them very well.

As it says in the “Choose Kindness” Wisie for Kids video, “…you deserve to be treated well, just because you are you…”

As we inspire our children with an abundance of OUR kindness, we teach them to actually LIVE as if they really deserve to be treated well.

wisdom and motivation for children

By calmly, patiently and perseveringly bringing your child back to the mess he left, and then guiding him to put his things where they belong, over and over and over again, WITHOUT fighting, your child gradually develops the habit of doing it on his own.

In the Wisie for Kids video, “Teach Your Children Patience”, the wisdom for children is really essential for the child’s learning, development and success.

The message is also great for adults to remember.

After all, isn’t patience a necessary part of all major accomplishments?

It’s even essential for remaining sane as we parents work on improving our child’s behavior.

For instance, to get your child to clean up after himself is usually NOT a quick process.

You need to remain patient, to “keep your cool” as you repeatedly guide your child to put her things away each time that she “forgets”.

If you lose your patience in the process, and react with annoyance and frustration, you actually motivate your child to be more resistant, and you make the process more of a strain than it needs to be.

By calmly, patiently and perseveringly bringing your child back to the mess he left, and then guiding him to put his things where they belong, over and over and over again, WITHOUT fighting, your child gradually develops the habit of doing it on his own.

At the same time, you model the wisdom for children of being patient with when you cannot instantly have your way.

What are some of the new or improved behaviors that you would like to motivate your child to do on his or her own?

While working with your child, when do you tend to lose your patience?

In this blog, share your thoughts and questions about how to
pass on the wisdom for children (and adults) that patience represents.

As this Wisie for Kids video reminds the child, “Don’t get angry, just keep working at it” – we parents need to remember this for happy success in improving child behavior.

As we model patience and perseverance in the way that we work with our children, we pass on that wisdom TO our children.
