Helping your teen find their passion in life can help them to stay on a positive road to a better future. Getting involved in clubs, sports, organizations, volunteering and more can motivate your teenagers and build their self-confidence.
Starting at a young age, learning that everything they do in life matters is part of knowing that you have a purpose. Encourage your teens to find out what they really love and help them achieve their goals.
Some great tips from author of The Path to Purpose and professor, William Damon:
- Communicate that everything your child does matters.
- Watch for their spark of interest. Every child has at least one.
- Nurture a positive outlook.
- Provide knowledge and social capital – help your child find the information or resources that he or she needs to pursue an interest.
Be an educated parent, you will have happier and healthier teens.
