Do you want to become one of the greatest motivational speakers for family and parenting? The initial step to become the best motivational speakers is to build your experience in the chosen field or industry. You need to experience real-world scenarios and the techniques.
Start within you
Before sharing to other people your effective family and parenting techniques, you need to build your own parenting habits. Here are some tips to start building your experience.
Unconditional love. Provide unconditional love to your kids to make them feel a sense of belongingness in your family. Let your children be aware that they will always have a spot in your family no matter what happens or whatever mistakes they have committed. Kids who belong to affectionate families are much equipped to handle disappointments and frustrations in their everyday life. They develop self-confidence, self-worth, self-esteem, and self-belief from being loved unconditionally.
Quality time. Anyone will definitely enjoy spending quality time with loved ones. Who would not love a chat or a fun game with their families even for a couple of minutes?
For most parents, this is the most challenging parenting habit because it requires devoted and committed time. Kissing and hugging your children is quicker and easier to do in comparison to sitting down with your child to read books. A fully engaged time with your children is a gift that you can give especially if your child needs and wants to feel loved. Ensure to devote a specific time from your busy schedule to your children. During this period, focus your attention only to them. You can do some activities together and chat.
Forget about your work or the need to answer quick emails during your devoted time to your children. Keep your gadgets away during family day or weekends. Make sure that when you are at home, you do not spend most of your time tinkering on your laptop. Save it on a work day.
Positive communication. Start practicing soft and gentle delivery of messages to your children. Unfortunately, there are parents who speak in demanding and controlling phrases. These parents actually just want their children to simply follow what they want to do and where to go.
For instance, “Go to your room,” “Take out the trash” or “Wash your hands.” As a parent, you have the power over your children because you are bigger and older. However, the result of this negative habit is you will have a hard time making your children do something they do not want. Most probably, you will end up yelling and shouting all the time just to get things done around your home.
Personal space and privacy. You do not have the license to invade the privacy of your children even if you are their parents. Respect the personal time and space of your children regardless of their ages. They also need time to energize, to relax, and to be quiet alone. Teach your children to respect the personal time and space of their siblings especially if they share a room. Teaching this value will make them feel they have a secured place where they can think, relax, create or cry alone.
The above tips on how you can build your experience will help you to become one of the best motivational speakers on family and parenting. Remember that you need to start within you before you can share information. Take note of the valuable lessons you have learned as you go along on your journey.
Most great motivational speakers speak through their own experiences – the ups and downs. Inspire other parents and be an instrument of building a happy family through becoming a great inspirational speaker.
