☆ encourage 励ます
You encourage someone, and give them confidence, by letting them know that what they are doing is good, and telling them they should continue to do it. So… do you want to hear how last night went? Good news, we had time for a storybook before bed, and everyone was happy!
Last night, as soon as we had eaten dinner, I encouraged my son to do all his chores and get ready for his bath. I reminded him about the time, and told him what time he needed to be ready by if he wanted me to read him a bedtime story… and we did it! I kept encouraging him, until the very end, and he got everything done by 8:20pm, and was in bed waiting for a bedtime story.
I love a happy ending! Ha ha.
