Today, I’m pumped to dive into a topic that’s close to my heart – the profound influence a mother can have on her child. As a top motivational speaker for teenagers, I have seen the impact firsthand in countless stories, including that of my friend, dunk champion and former Harlem Globetrotter, Chris Staples.
Let’s talk about Chris for a moment. He’s living proof of the influence a mother can have as he credits his stellar career to his unwavering mom who supported his dreams, even when they seemed unlikely to happen. He talks about it all in a video above. It’s heartwarming to hear the way Chris talks about his mom and the bond that they formed together as he chased his passion in life. I think you’ll enjoy this video and want to call your mom afterwards – and you should!
The importance of a mother’s role in a child’s life cannot be overstated. According to this research, a mother’s emotional involvement is significant for the development and well-being of her child. The results show that an engaged and supportive mother can help her child become more self-reliant and perform better academically.
How does one foster this nurturing approach? How does a mother, make that difference?
Here are a few tips to get you started:
Listen to your child earnestly. Validate their feelings. Express your love towards them verbally and through actions. Show genuine interest in their activities and aspirations. Always, always be their cheerleader.
