Is it possible to motivate your children?
Is the desire to challenge oneself and do ones best, inborn?
I have a theory that unconditional love extinguishes a healthy fear of failure.
(It's a rather harebrained theory combined with a touch of humor)
Can parents light that fire in their children....or is that fire there from the beginning?
The second thing I am wondering this morning is....
Can you recommend a book that teaches word origins in Greek for beginners?
For instance last night I read this in Martha Peace's book "Becoming a Titus 2 Woman;
The Greek work for "love their children" is philioteknos. This work is a combination of the word philos (beloved, tenderness) and teknos (child).
I love learning what the Greek word means. It adds so much to my understanding.
But I don't really want one of those big thick books with all the cross references. And I am not looking to learn the Greek alphabet right away.
Any thoughts? It can be very basic.
