At times, we look around for inspiration all across the world. It is propitious for one to look for some sort of inspiration that fuels up one’s energy or succors one’s falling spirit. However, sometimes what we seek is present within our closely knitted circle. That circle is our family where we generally don’t seek such motivation. I, too, was looking for such an inspiration once when I came to know of my uncle.
My uncle, Matthew, is a prolific painter and has won lots of awards in his lifetime. However, I didn’t even have an iota of an idea of it. I am a painter myself and hence, keep on looking for the artists and their artwork to draw inspiration for my next work. Well, It was in the year 2019 when I decided to take part in an art competition, and the one who would make the most unique painting would be the winner. I was falling short of ideas and was looking for some guidance from all the people around but to no avail. It was then when uncle Matthew came to my rescue and presented not one but a slew of ideas. Upon asking the source of these ideas, he showed me his awards and paintings. I was enchanted by them all.
Thankfully, I won the contest. If I didn’t get help from my uncle, I wouldn’t even win a consolation prize. I have ever since been so proud of him.

Part 3 Questions
When would parents feel proud of their children?
Parents feel proud of their children when their children display ethical values in their conduct or study well. Apart from that parents could be proud of anything their child does which is extraordinary or maybe, ordinary things that the child performs extraordinarily.
Should parents reward children? Why and how?
Well, I think that children should be rewarded. That reward could be anything though. Everyone likes incentives and incentivizing good things prompts children to do them.
Is it good to reward children too often? Why?
Everything in excess is bad. Hence, children shouldn’t be rewarded too often. Such recurrent rewards grow a proclivity in children to work only for rewards and this would be detrimental to their intellect as well as their behavior in the long term.
On what occasions would adults be proud of themselves?
Adults could be proud of themselves in various instances and that solely depends upon what their prudence suggests. Some might achieve great things and still be indifferent to that while some might find immense happiness and pride in trivial achievements.

Eg.: That extraordinary child was god-gifted.
