Apathy in teens is a common issue, especially these days with so much screen time – cell phone, tablets, lap tops, streaming video and video games.
I recently came across an interesting article on ways to motivate teen boys.
Below is a link to the article.
I especially like the suggestion to: “let them make mistakes”. We see so many students so deathly afraid of making mistakes and aiming for perfection. Making mistakes is how children learn and grow. There is no such thing as perfection. One of the best gifts we can give our children is room to make mistakes and learn from them. This is how we equip them for life!
