How to motivate your kids to achieve their own goals ?

no thumb

Parenting is a whole another level of training for me.  I was 25 when I started being a step mom to a teenager and a 9 year old.  It was something I had to mentally prepare for.  The kids and I bonded immediately because I was able to to put them first and be very supportive.

Investing my time in them has really made all the difference.   It is not always easy, I used to get extremely exhausted before.  Now, I just count it as part of my day.  As they grow up, we noticed that there is more work that needs to be done on their emotional development and motivation to start getting things done on their own.  We can only really point them in the right direction.   I have learned a lot since I got married and became a parent.

  1. Build your kids confidence.
  2. Teach them independence.
  3. Include them in the family’s activities and goals. Listen to their suggestion. Create a vision board.
  4. Post motivational frames in your house.
  5. Be supportive all the time.If the ideas seems unrealistic then suggest something that they can do better. Have boundaries though.
  6. Acknowledge when your kids did something great. Give them a hug. Reward them for their current achievements.
  7. Work ethics. Show them what hard work is. Always tell them that you will not get anything done with sitting and doing nothing all day.

Homesick Therapy: Kamayan

best filipino food

The US is becoming my home because I am with my husband but every now and then I miss my home country, the Philippines. The feeling of frustration, getting upset for no reason and being moody is what happens when I am homesick. I knew it was not time to go to the Philippines yet so I have to do something.

So I went to the Asian market, spent about $100 to get all the ingredients that I needed to make kamayan food. My mood changed from depression to extreme excitement and happiness. You should do the same too when you start feeling it.
