We all know that motivated kids can do everything. Their drive and motivation will determine their success in life even more than their knowledge, their academic achievements, their skills and abilities. Motivation is like a battery that keeps people going. The fuller the battery is, the further we can go.
Motivation is what makes your child get up in the morning, eat, take care of him/herself, learn, try new things and experience the world to the fullest. It is like the fuel that keeps them going and, as a parent you want them to go far. If you want to make sure your kids will go far, into every destination in life, you want to make sure their motivation battery is full.
