The best way to encourage kids to try their best is with a smile! But don’t take out word for it. Research studies confirm that positive feedback triggers a natural drive for kids to discover their own potential. Intrinsically motivated children are more involved in their own learning and development and tend to be more enthusiastic learners.
So how can you help your child become intrinsically motivated? Praise your child’s efforts as well as their actual accomplishments. Offer suggestions in a supportive way and never criticize or compare their efforts to another child’s.
Here at The Little Gym, we celebrate gold medal moments every day by challenging children to strive for their own personal best in a positive, non-competitive environment. Each new accomplishment builds confidence and each successful experience motivates kids to try for the next. Whether they’re learning to land the perfect cartwheel or are learning to listen and follow directions, the confidence gained will inspire them to strive for new challenges with proud Olympic-sized smiles on their faces.
