When taking into account the constant reminders for our teenagers to do various tasks (that they have been taught how to do their ENTIRE lives), it may be hard to believe that their brains are actually wired to retain information.
While we—the responsible adults in their lives—understand the power that they hold to mold and train their brains, they may not. Let’s be real: every year the academic demands and responsibilities increase, which can leave them feeling defeated and believing that they simply “don’t get it.”
Don’t forget how important time limits and unplugging are for promoting restful sleep and healthy kids. (Hint: using parental control software can help you regulate your child’s screen time.) This journey with your teen may also enlighten you to ways in which you can better communicate with them… and possibly even get them to complete their chores without constant reminders.
