Teens don’t often stop and think about who they are and where they are going in life. As a parent, you can be instrumental in helping your teen begin the process of examining their life. – Sandra
Self-reflection allows teens to figure out what about a situation is unpleasant and then to come up with possible ways of responding more effectively with similar experiences in the future. The habit of self-reflection is not often easy for teens to develop on their own, and they need to be encouraged and guided.
Self-reflection helps teens to figure out more effective ways of interacting with the world. Teens may come to recognize that there are certain skills they still need to learn. They might also come to understand ways to avoid similar situations in the future, or how they might turn them around.
The world is full of distractions. Television, video games, and cell phones definitely look more exciting to teens than time for reflection. Yet, self-reflection is important because it gives teens the sense that they creating their life, and not merely being ruled by forces outside of their control.
Self-reflection provides a doorway to understanding themselves, and life in general. The kind of wisdom and self-control that teens need to be ready 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 experiences to grow.
If your teen or young adult child is struggling socially or emotionally, I can help you to discover the cause and remedy it.
