How to motivate your High School student

How to motivate your High School student

Many parents tell me that their biggest struggle with their teen is:

Lack of motivation

How do I help my child do better in school, if they don’t have the motivation to do well?

How do I motivate my teen to get up on time?

How do I motivate my child to go to school today?

How do I get my kid to do anything?

If you can relate, this is a struggle that most parents feel.

While most teens that seem motivated, are actually intrinsically motivated, there are a few things you can do to try to help your teen become motivated to do better in school (and in life)

Why I teach my daughter to challenge me

Why I teach my daughter to challenge me

My daughter is only 3, and, let’s be honest, I don’t have to “teach” her to challenge me. She kinda just knows how to do it on her own.

Unfortunately for me, she has the attitude of her mother. And I love her for it. Because, while they say she looks like my husbands side of the family, at least she’s got the important things from me! :D

But back to the point.

I home school my daughters pre-school. And like many students, when she learns the basics of something new, she thinks she knows it ALL!

For example, yesterday my daughter and I were going over all of the words that start with J. She listed Jaguar, jellyfish, jelly bean, January, and Jesus. Then she said Kangaroo, so I explained that Kangaroo starts with a K and not a J.

She then told me, “No mommy, it starts with a J".”

We then go back and forth about who is right, and which letter Kangaroo actually starts with. And my first thought was Another typical conversation in the life with a 3 year old.

Most all of you parents remember this stage, and can relate.

But my second reaction made me realize that this trait will take her far in life. And this trait is actually what I encourage all my students to do!
