Motivational Speaker, Coach, and Author Jon Vroman is back on the show. He is here to tell us all about hope, celebration, and living in the moment. He also tells us how to prevent ourselves from projecting limiting beliefs on our kids, how to honor what’s in our hearts, and how to take a front row seat in our lives!
Today’s episode is all about mindset. As parents, most of us are praising our kids in a harmful way and we don’t even know it. We have the best intentions, but we are actually setting them up for disaster. In this episode, I outline four examples of how NOT to praise your kid and one example of how to encourage them in a way that cultivates a growth mindset.
As much as we want to encourage our kids to do their best, we might be unintentionally causing them undue stress. That is why it’s crucial – whether in sports, school, or life – that our kids see the same us when they look to us for support.
Playing sports teaches our kids life lessons, but today, 70% kids quit sports by the age of thirteen. We’re going to Coach Jim and Coach Steve from Coach Baseball Right to talk about the hidden secrets to why kids quit sports and how we, as parents or coaches, can change our strategies to encourage and motivate them in the right way.
