Ah, motivating kids. A task that requires the cunningness of a motivational speaker, the patience of a saint, and the energy of a hyperactive puppy. But fear not, dear reader, for I am here to guide you through this treacherous terrain with a sprinkle of humor and a dash of wisdom.
Motivating kids can sometimes feel like herding cats or trying to teach a goldfish how to ride a bicycle. It’s no easy feat! But with the right approach, you can unlock their potential and ignite their inner fire.
In this section, we will explore various strategies to motivate those little bundles of energy. From using positive reinforcement techniques to appreciating their efforts (even if they draw you an abstract masterpiece on your living room wall), we’ll cover it all.
But wait, there’s more! We’ll also delve into the delicate art of constructive criticism. Because let’s face it, sometimes kids need a gentle nudge in the right direction (or maybe even an entire marching band playing “Eye of the Tiger”).
So buckle up and get ready for an adventure in motivation land. Together, we’ll navigate through tantrums and tears, laughter and triumphs, all in pursuit of helping those tiny humans become the best versions of themselves. Let’s dive in!
Motivating kids is not just about pushing them to achieve goals; it’s about inspiring and empowering them to reach their full potential. As parents, teachers, and mentors, we have the incredible opportunity to shape young minds and instil in them a sense of self-belief and determination.
Motivation comes in many forms – encouragement, appreciation, and even constructive criticism. By recognising their efforts and achievements, we can fuel their desire to excel. It’s important to create a positive environment where children feel supported and valued for their unique strengths.
Rather than focusing solely on outcomes or comparing them to others, let’s cultivate a growth mindset in our children. Teach them that failure is not a setback but an opportunity for growth and learning. Encourage them to set realistic goals and celebrate progress along the way.
Motivation also thrives when children have a sense of purpose. Help them discover their passions and interests, guiding them towards activities that ignite their curiosity. By connecting their actions with meaningful outcomes, they will find intrinsic motivation that drives them forward.
Above all else, let’s lead by example. Show kids what it means to be passionate about something, how perseverance pays off, and how embracing challenges can lead to personal growth. Our enthusiasm will be contagious as they witness our unwavering belief in their abilities.
So let’s inspire the next generation by fostering an environment of motivation and empowerment. Together, we can help kids unleash their full potential as they navigate the journey of life with confidence and resilience.

Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
Modesty or humility is viewed as the hallmark of a well-brought-up girl, which makes it hard for us to be open to any real compliments without feeling like an imposter.
Why is accepting that compliment so hard?
Colleagues: Have you lost weight? You look good!
She (who has spent months doing Keto and weights): It’s the dress that’s making me look thinner!
Guests: Your house is so beautiful and neat!
She (who spent the last five hours mopping and polishing): It could be tidier; there is just so much dust.
