It is a parent's job to encourage and inspire their children. But what if your son is not feeling motivated? Here are 10 ways to get your son moving and excited about life.
1. Make sure he is always around positive people and experiences
Surround him with friends that encourage him to be positive, hard-working, and compassionate. If he lacks positive role models in his life, encourage him to surround himself with people who do support his goals and encourage him to be his best self.
2. Attend as many school and sporting events as you can.
Support his activities at school and in the community. Be sure to remind him that it is important to give back to others as well. Help him with volunteer work and other projects, such as building a school playground or donating clothes to a shelter.
3. Give him words of encouragement every day
Remind him that anything is possible with the right attitude, focus, and hard work.
4. Take time out of your day to do something special with him
Go on walks in the park, play games together, or read a good book together. Make him feel cherished and special to you.
5. Spend time together as a family doing activities that you enjoy
This will help build strong bonds between you and help you stay close as he gets older. It will also help motivate him to work hard in school so he can follow in your footsteps one day.
6. Get involved with his life
Pay attention to what is going on in your son's life. Ask about his interests and schoolwork so you can help him stay motivated.
7. Let him know that you are proud of him and that you are always there for him whenever he needs you
This will encourage him to keep moving forward and keep working towards his goals. Find ways to work together. If your son is involved in a sports team, go cheer him on at a game. If he is passionate about a hobby, join him and see what you can do to help. Spending time together will give you a chance to form a special bond and build a stronger relationship.
8. Go for a walk
Getting out of the house and getting some exercise is a great way to reconnect with each other and have some fun at the same time. It will also give you an opportunity to talk and get reacquainted after a busy day at work.
9. Cook a meal together
A home-cooked meal can be a great way to relax and spend some quality time with each other. Talk and share stories while enjoying a delicious meal and some friendly conversation.
10. Give an encouraging gift
Sometimes the best way to show you care is by giving a gift that conveys how you feel through written words, rather than speaking your feelings out loud. A great benefit is that the item will carry your encouraging message for years to come.
