Being a mother of young children can be challenging at times. From not knowing how to provide for them in the best way you can to worrying about whether their needs are being met, there is no experience like the one offered by motherhood. If your children’s behaviour is at times challenging and you have reason to believe they have stopped trying to become better versions of themselves because they don’t think they are able to behave differently, you might want to use some rewards to help them grow more confident in themselves.
A little reward from time to time goes a long way, and this educational method will help you turn your children into highly capable individuals who have a bright future ahead of them.
Here’s how to motivate your little ones.
Hold events in which they can be the winners
There is no better reward than that which has been earned, and that is what you should make your children believe. If you have some free time during the day that you can devote to looking after your children, this could be well used if you planned activities in which they could excel and become winners. This won’t only introduce them to new sports routines, but it will also show them that with a bit of effort and determination they can become good at things they didn’t know anything about before. In order to make them that bit more motivated about taking part in activities that are little known to them, you should put a reward system in place so that they are not only congratulated on their success but also given a prize for it.

Spend more time with them
Your children are little humans who are always growing (fast), and they need attention and warmth in order for them to be vulnerable and honest. You might think that you already spend enough time with them, but if they are at a stage when they are learning about their surroundings and becoming more aware of them, you might want to schedule in some extra time to spend with your children. This could be in the form of merely sitting next to them when they are doing their homework, going to the cinema and enjoying a film in their company or having some ice cream while you talk about whether they are happy in school. It might be difficult for you to find the extra time to sit with your kids and play but with a little effort, you will get to spend some of the most magical moments you have to date spent with your little ones.
Be frank and honest about their behaviour
Your kids are growing, and one day you hope they will be equipped with the necessary tools in order for them to make wise and intelligent decisions. In order for them to do so, they will need to be taught how to behave and respond to life situations. This is why it is essential for you to be open and honest about their behaviour and while you will be rewarding their achievements when they succeed at something, you also need to make sure you are truthful when they behave in a way that you think is detrimental to their growth and social relationships.
