Pray Hard That Your Children Ignore You

6. The environment within which one is accustomed to can have either a positive or negative effect on the level of motivation that one feels. If one’s environment does not offer a peaceful, relaxing and comfortable atmosphere within which one can breathe, then the person seeking to be motivated should strive to create their own little space where they can retreat to for inspiration. This might be their room, a private spot in the house or even a park for a one hour getaway. The onus is therefore often on the parent or guardian to facilitate that environment of a peaceful and motivating atmosphere. Environment is not always being just a physical place, but also a state of mind. Channeling the mind to be at rest can be a great motivator as dreams that are often accomplished are first envisioned. Helping your teen to envision their own little heaven can be achieved through introducing them to books that take them to a world beyond their own that is beautiful and achievable.

7. Forecasting – envisioning, because then there is a possibility one can have it. It is believed that the positive or negative thoughts that you convey to a child can become a reality.

8. Re-education is exactly what it suggests– reeducating our teens with the desired information we would like them to have. Some might think that this is impossible as their personalities are already formed and they are already highly influenced by what they have inculcated through the various education media. This is not an impossible task, however, as teens are highly impressionable. They can be re-educated with positive values and attitudes.

In choosing to re-educate, parents can network or they can change the atmosphere around their living environment.

As Pope John Paul II said, “To maintain a joyful family requires much from both the parents and the children. Each member of the family has to become, in a special way, the servant of the others.”
