Dear parents and/or guardians...
This month we are learning about inspiration and the term “inspire.” It is important
for children to be inspired, whether it is by leaders or peers, reading a book, or
watching the Olympics. Our children need to learn how to be inspirational to other
people as well. Although we cannot always motivate our children, it is important to
help get them inspired to reach their goals and dreams. As parents, we need to be
excited and supportive of the things that help to inspire and motivate our children.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Paint a picture of what you see in
their immediate future. Visualizing the
future can give them an inspiration
to become motivated to reach those
dreams and goals.

Tell stories of what other people
have overcome and accomplished.
There are so many stories about
many different kinds of people that
overcame something to accomplish
their goals and dreams. Find someone
with a similar background to what
your children are trying to achieve
and share the story with them. Stories
are inspirational.

Help your children see how far they
have already come on their journey to
accomplishing their goals.

Help your children learn a new skill.

Celebrate your children’s progress.

Talk to your children about who in the
world inspires them and who they see
as leaders.

Inspiration
THE WORD INSPIRATION COMES
FROM THE LATIN WORD INSPIRE
MEANING TO BREATHE SPIRIT.
TO INSPIRE ANOTHER OR TO
BE INSPIRED MEANS TO INFUSE
WITH LIFE, TO STIMULATE SOME
CREATIVE OR EFFECTIVE EFFORT,
TO GIVE LIFE, OR TO EXHILARATE.
