    jmd. zu etwas bewegen

    Context/ examples
    Die ersten Menschen aber, die andere zu einer Handlung bewegen, sind nicht Feldherren. Es sind Mütter, die ihre Kinder dazu bewegen, Gefahren zu meiden. Je erfolgreicher sie darin sind, desto schneller vermehrt sich die Sippe.

    would you say...
    mothers move their children to avoid danger,
    does sound right in a certain sense, but not the one I mean.

    @ Helmi
    sounds a bit to modern and active a term to me.
    Jemanden zu etwas bewegen kann ohne Worte gehen,
    oh well I guess the same goes for ermutigen.

    @ Jutta: "without words" generated a little smile, as in "motivating somenone with a baseball bat."
