"You'll be on your way up! You'll be seeing great sights! You'll join the high fliers who soar to high heights."
Hmmmmm. Encouragement in any form is welcome, and as a young person just getting on their way in life, it is really important to hear statements like these. Whether it comes from a parent, sibling, older relative, school teacher, or religious counselor, we need encouragement every day and in every way. Teenagers especially need encouragement, as hormones, everyday tasks, and romantic relationships challenge friendships. Between the school life, the social life, the family obligations, and chores at home, teens are under a lot of stress.
Please be gentle and caring while at the same time holding your teens to high standards. Communication is key. Of course, telling kids I LOVE YOU multiple times a day and hugging often can bring them the support and confidence they need to soar to high height!
I want to hear from you!
