Many parents think that their child is always happy and without problems. So there is no reason for talking with them and trying to improve their motivation. This is a common mistake made by almost every parent! The truth is different. Your child may have problems at school, with friends and with bullying. This means he will lose motivation, which is related to bad grades, sadness and even depression.
As a parent, you must give rewards to your child. But, according to one study, giving a reward often to your child, will be treated as ‘’bribe’’. Simply said, your child will do something only until you give him rewards, after you stop, he will stop also. For example, adults work for money, as soon as they stopped being paid, they will stop working! The same situation is with kids. An even more helpful tip is to have meaningful conversations with your child. Parents often avoid these conversations! The best way you can help your child is to talk to him! You have much more experience and this can be very useful for your children. Don’t judge your kid! When he makes some mistake, tell him that it is ok, and there would be no problem. If you criticize his every mistake, you will destroy his confidence, which means he will lose motivation for moving forward! Instead, express appreciation, try to help him improve his skills and be more successful in everyday activities.
If you do this correctly, you will have a child with a lot of confidence and motivations so he can do almost anything! In this world, this is the best what you can do for him.
