Life is a challenge-meet it. That’s the kind of message teachers need to give their pupils more often. Pupils spend so much time in school that teachers have more opportunity of inspiring those students than even their parents. So they can encourage them never to give up on their dreams or to strive for excellence. They can suggest that they look at things differently or suggest that they turn their thoughts into action. Of course parents teach by example but teachers have students in a more formal setting and they expect teachers to make inspirational or motivational suggestions. They are, if you like, a captive audience and something a teacher says may just strike a chord. Telling them to make a random act of kindness every day might just encourage them to make that a habit for life. Subjects like these are ideal topics for discussion and of course if you can get them talking about what they can achieve they could develop a totally different outlook on life. So if you are a teacher risk it, a risk is worth taking.
