The power of positive feelings is immense! When our kids experience love and joy coupled with chores…they associate doing chores with positive feelings.
When they experience warmth and affection coupled with learning…they come to associate academics with positive feelings.
When they feel our joy as we parent or educate them, they’re far more likely to live a life filled with excitement and motivation instead of apprehension and apathy.
Sometimes I get shortsighted. Sometimes I forget all of this. Sometimes I allow myself to get cross and short and impatient, thinking that somehow my negativity will inspire my kids to cheerfully learn and complete their daily duties. I forget all of this when I don’t take good care of myself.
