Teaching Teens How To Problem SolveBy
WHAT IS SELF-REFLECTION?
Self-reflection is essential for digesting troubling or negative experiences. Reflection allows teens to figure out what about their situation is unpleasant, to understand why, and then to come up with possible ways of deal effectively with similar experiences in the future.
LEARNING LIFE SKILLS
Perhaps they will come to realize that there are certain skills they still need to learn. They might also come to recognize ways they can avoid problems in the future, or how to turn them around. Reflection allows teens to figure out effective ways of being who they want to be in the world.
The world is full of distractions and almost anything looks more exciting than making time for self-reflection. However, self-reflection can give teens the sense that they are the masters of their destiny, and not just being tossed around by forces outside of their control.
The kind of wisdom and self-control that teens will need to go out into the world and live on their own doesn’t come all at once. It is gained by learning from their mistakes, and utilizing every experience to create a better life experience.
