Do you have an unmotivated teenager? An unhappy one? It turns out motivation and happiness go hand-in-hand with purpose. But we don't focus on purpose with our teens. It starts when they’re little and we ask our kids what they want to be when they grow up. As they enter high school we start asking about colleges and careers. But it turns out we’re focusing on the wrong question if we want our children to be happy and motivated. What we need to help our teenagers focus on is purpose. But what does that mean and why is it important? Mighty Parenting podcast host Sandy Fowler interviews Tim Klein, director of the True North Program at Boston College about purpose in life. Tim will help parents understand what purpose is, why it’s important for teens and young adults, and how to cultivate it in them.
