How to Motivate Your Unmotivated Child (Part 1)

Dec 03, 2021 / General     

Author Joe White suggests seven ways to motivate our children in whatever they do.  First, have realistic expectations of your child.  Not every child will make straight A’s or start on their sports team.  Second, be a model of motivation.  Your child needs to see you loving your work, exercising, and celebrating goals achieved.  Third, make sure your child breaks a mental and physical “sweat.”  Don’t over protect or over provide.  Let them work out some problems themselves. Here’s more on how to motivate your unmotivated child. Be sure to check back tomorrow as I’ll cover the final four ways to motivate your unmotivated child.
