Practical ways to support, build and inspire motivation in children

Practical ways to support, build and inspire motivation in children

More details

I discuss what motivation looks like and why most kids feel frustrated and unmotivated in certain situations and in certain times.

I share practical ways to build resilience, self-confidence and help kids find their spark.

We look at tools to develop emotional intelligence ( a predictor of success) which inspire intrinsic motivation and helps children thrive.
