  • Tuesday Tips for Parents - Motivating Teens

    Tuesday Tips for Parents - Join us Tuesdays at 12noon at for our Live Show. For many kids, the issue isn't their intelligence, it's their intrinsic motivation, according to Beth Larsen, a high school resource instructor. “Teenagers aren’t motivated by the same external rewards as younger children,” she explains. “The best motivation comes from inside.” Larsen believes that kids need to recognize their own potential in order to succeed. “You have to ask them what they want in life.

    Snow Day Activities
