My Teen has lost confidence
Mines not a teen yet
But not far off, this threw me a little at first as most teens I have met are anything but less confident 😅
However yes there is another side, since covid especially, our youth feel isolated, unwanted and worst case bored 😴
Less motivated and dare I say it just annoyed with all that's going on
Management of their life is bad enough 😪 then they have the baggage of unwanted and unwarranted emotions 😢 😑 😕
Sad, angry, 😠 afraid 😨 disappointed and lots more
It's all so confusing 😕 for all of us nevermind the young
Nature walks are amazing, connecting, feeling grounded and the effects of just breathing that air is amazing
Open spaces for them to talk, be themselves and let it out
Most effective I have found is brain dumping as I love to call it
Scribble some words, write a letter or do some finger painting ....
Then throw it out..
We all need help sometimes... it's OK to not be OK all the all the time
