20 Quotes about Courage and Bravery for Parents and Kids

Being brave is all about one's attitude and it also comes with time, experience, and some motivation.

Not everyone is brave enough to live their life full of confidence because it requires some amount of motivation. The most important and easiest way to bring out someone's bravery is just to appreciate them in whatever the work they are doing and boost them up.

People really like to be appreciated especially when they are coming out of their shell. This very act takes real courage and confidence from within, and also requires support.

Courage shows up in many ways all around you. Courage is standing up for a friend, helping someone in need or sticking with something that is hard for you to do.  As a young person, courage is one of the most important things you can develop.  Having courage makes you a better person, a better student and a better citizen.

Take Action:

  • Do something worthwhile that will benefit other people.

Resilience is the ability to meet and overcome adversity in ways that maintain or promote well-being. It incorporates attributes like grit, persistence, initiative, and determination.

Parents and teachers build resilience when they gently push young people to the edges of their intellectual, emotional, social, and physical comfort zones. When adults support and encourage youth as they take risks, face obstacles, and grow from failure, young people learn how to bounce back from life’s ups and downs.

Quotes can be a great reminder of how Brave and Courageous one can be!
