Empower Your Kids: Empowering Children Leads to a Future of Purposeful Possibilities

Children hold the potential for the future of our society. They will grow to be the inventors, educators and leaders for the next generation. It is the task of teachers and parents to build the requisite skills that will drive the achievement for their future success. The key to that skill development lies in empowerment. Helping kids to gain a sense of inner confidence, courage and strength to successfully surmount whatever life may present begins with these skills:

  • Listen to your inner voice.
  • Know your strengths.
  • Identify opportunities for growth.
  • Connect with your community.
  • Establish personal goals.

Empowering literally means to "put in" or "to cause" power as derived from its Latin roots. The act of empowering children is a process of guiding them to feel and believe that they can be a powerful force in their own lives.

It's very meaningful to hear examples empowerment at work. Kids can be made to feel "powerless" and by being empowered, they learn that they can make a difference in the world.
