The Inspired Children life skills approach to parenting is all about empowering children to live a full, happy and meaningful life. Each life skill activity supports children to navigate the world successfully. For example:
- by learning to eat well and to exercise our children can enjoy good physical health.
- by helping children to become aware of their negative thoughts and to take steps to believe positive things about themselves and life they can enjoy good psychological health
- by supporting children to learn how to manage their emotions and be resilient they can overcome life’s many challenges and have sound emotional health
Helping children make a difference in the
world is so empowering and uplifting. Think about how you feel when you have
made a positive difference in the world. You may have been there for a friend
in need, supported a charity or picked up some trash in your local area on a
clean-up day. It all counts and it all feels great to do good in the world,
Dr Martin Seligman, the world’s leading positive psychologist says that giving to others is a key part of our wellbeing. To quote from his website about having meaning in life: “Meaning comes from serving a cause bigger than ourselves. Whether this is a specific deity or religion, or a cause that helps humanity in some way, we all need meaning in our lives to have a sense of well-being”.
Life skills can also support children to make a positive difference in the lives of others in their family and community. We can help our children become aware of environmental and social issues and empower them to be change makers and have that sense of wellbeing thorough their whole life.
We’ve all heard the saying “our children are the leaders of tomorrow”, but what if they could be the leaders of today? The creators of Tomorrow’s Roundtable believe we can learn from our children and empower them to be the leaders in world change TODAY, and are in the process of making that dream a reality.
Five children from across the Unites States join the host, Ivy Joeva, at the roundtable. It's not just a talk show, it's an action show. They come together to explore, brainstorm, and ultimately try to solve one of the world’s big problems. Ivy moderates the discussion, helping the children connect their vivid imaginations with practical adult perspectives. Once they have come up with some great solutions, they are put into action. Children are empowered with the support of other change makers.
This project is so important as it has the potential to inspire all children to know that they can make a difference in the world. I really enjoyed meeting the inspired creators and learning about their life changing mission.
