When kids know that we sincerely not only care for them but we sincerely care about things that are important to them motivation skyrockets! How can we show our sincere care about the things kids care about if we do not sincerely care about those things such as Dora the Explorer, Princesses, Spiderman, or fossils? Beginning with the end in mind just may be the key we need to unlock the door to this sincerity because our kids somehow know if and when we are sincere or not and insincerity does not motivate anyone. For example if we want our children to be motivated to behave well at a restaurant we may need to have a tea party with all their favorite characters the week before and model the desired behavior we want at the restaurant making the connection to how the characters behaved and how pleased we were with them. This seemingly silly or senseless time spend with our kids gives us a greater glimpse into their world and how they see the greater world we live in. This understanding and relationship building builds invites us into their world and gets us out of our world. When these two worlds unite the partnership is magical and children will be motivated to do many things that we may have thought were impossible for them. With this in mind if you have not done so already please take the time to Read the Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman . It is a life changing read that will help you keep your kids motivated. If you cannot commit to another book to read consider incorporating these five challenges into your kids life and get ready for greater parenting joy with a motivated child in tow…

A fourth state championship in five years might become a blur to Seton Catholic, but not this year. Despite a lineup of 3-4 freshman starting or receiving regular playing time, the senior anchors of Julia Barcello, Heather Heild and Crystal Eze helped bring the youngens along while remaining a concensus No. 1 team in Division II all season. The Sentinels might not have required an emotional pull, but it happened anyway. While assistant coach Tiffany Tate battles cystic fibrosis and awaits a second double-lung transplant, the Sentinels gave her the golden ball on her 31st birthday with a 37-30 victory over Vail Cienega. The defense shut out Cienega in the third quarter to bring the Sentinels back, then freshman LeeAnne Wirth (double knee fracture, a fractured vertebra and a double fracture in her wrist in the past 15 months) scored on an in-bounds play, sister Jennifer hit two free throws and Barcello made two more, all in the final 90 seconds to preserve the win and tip off an emotional party.
