February is notorious for chilly weather and the ‘blahs’, so we thought it would be a great month to keep your eye on the big picture: your sense of purpose! Kids can start to develop feelings of purpose at a very young age. Although this will evolve throughout their lives, purpose can help them continue to live a life filled with meaning. We can’t wait to build this significant skill with you this month!
What is purpose?
Purpose is the feeling that the things we do and the choices we make have meaning and make a difference. It makes us feel happier and more confident and gives us a set of guiding principles that help us make decisions. When kids have a sense of purpose, it is easier for them to keep going when things get difficult because they can see a bigger picture. This can make them less likely to get caught up in the small trivial details that don’t matter in the long run.
Having a sense of purpose is so important that it can actually help your children live longer, healthier lives.
