AS PARENTS we know our children have tons of untapped potential. If only we could find a way to inspire and motivate them to release it.
We want them to continually make good choices, and to take ownership for their lives, education, and goals. We want to help them stop procrastinating, and start taking action on the things that matter most, so that they're prepared for their future -- a future we hope is bright, filled with meaning, happiness, family and financial success.
Personally, we struggle to know what and how to best help our kids. We're often feeling low on energy and lacking enough time to do the things we need and want to do. How can we make sure that our family is functioning smoothly, that our relationships are strong, and that we're feeling good about where our life (and our kids' lives) are headed? How can we make sure that the 'most important things' are happening?
OUTSIDE MENTORS can often provide the support and inspiration that we need, for ourselves and our children. A 'third-party witness' is often exactly what our kids need to drill home important life principles, inspire change, provide accountability, and help them feel motivated and energized to take on challenges.
MENTORING is one of the 'secrets' that parents are discovering to help them raise their kids. While some parents will pay tens of thousands of dollars (sometimes monthly) for troubled youth programs that promise to reform their wayward teen, wise parents focus on prevention -- by teaching principles and values, molding and guiding their kids, and re-enforcing their teaching with the help of inspiring mentors who have already successfully navigated that treacherous trail.
