Inspired Parents Raise Inspired Children Who Love to Learn

“I am here to serve. I am here to inspire. I am here to love. I am here to live my truth.” -Deepak Chopra

If you desire your children to love learning, it will begin with you. As you live inspired, curious about life and engaged in your every day, your children will as well. No matter how much or what you tell them to do, it is difficult for them to do anything other than what they are witnessing. As parents our duty is not to become slave to life; working to earn, toiling at home  and just getting by every day. Each and every person has an important role to fill and that includes living your truth, sharing love with others and inspiring your children.

Studies by the National Assessment of Educational Progress have found a direct link between the amount of printed material in a child’s home and their level of academic achievement. Children who have access to more books and learning at home are inspired to learn more. How much greater the results when we model for them how to apply these resources to every day practical living.

The best place to begin is reflecting on what your truth is and how you want to serve others. If you don’t know what that is then look at your life; what are your highest values? As you honor yourself, others will be able to honor you as well and this includes your children. Pick up a book and read more. Get a journal and write every day. Reflect on ways you can participate in your life more fully by living your truth.

Create an inspiring learning environment in your home making it a Smithsonian rather than Better Homes and Gardens. Create your own home library and as you build it supplement with regular trips to your local library. Become an explorer and engage in an expedition of living a lifestyle of learning. Surround yourself and your family with successful people. Do projects, read books and converse about it all together. This doesn’t have to be a difficult project, it can be done in baby steps.

Pick one thing for today. What will you read and what will you open yourself to learn today? Share this with your family tonight over dinner. Please share by leaving a comment below.
