What do we do if our child has a major behavior issue? How do we motivate through it?
Here is a basic checklist of things to look over when processing an area that your child needs to be motivated in. These are all things that we as parents can do.
One area that many parents find difficulty motivating their children, is schoolwork. There are many different simple ways to motivate a child to study.
Every child is different and there are different motivational triggers for each person. Make sure that you are taking the time to know your child well enough to know what will motivate them.
If we look at the high school and college years as an internship for adulthood and we are the supervisor, it may help us keep perspective as parents.
We have mentioned it many times before … communication is an important key to training. In order for you to be a safe place for your kids to come for accountability, there must be constant communication about the topic of dating.
. The place you begin preparing your child for the process of picking a mate is by having open communication about the topic. This begins in early childhood. Even as you are praying with them at night before they go to bed you can begin the process of praying for their future spouse.
Our children watch us very closely. There are even times when you see your child walking around in your shoes to mimic you. They pick up phrases we say and attitudes we have, how much more will they pick up marital habits?
