Why do parents reproduce the same mistake with their teens?

Updated: May 1, 2021

The average person will change careers 5-7 times during their working life according to career change statistics.

With an ever-increasing number of career choices, 30% of the workforce will now change careers or jobs every 12 months.

Most people are the products of their environment. They are the fruits of what they have seen, heard, and learned when they were young. Most of the time, adults must learn to unlearn what was taught to them from a young age in order to find fulfillment. Most adults go through a process of quest and self-discovery after the age of 25 when they realize that there is something missing in their life. Therefore, they decide to invest in their personal growth to achieve a life where they want to experience freedom.

If you are a parent who already invests in the personal growth of your teen(s), you are already paving the path of greatness for them.

However, it is not every parent who has the same kind of mindset. As much as parents desire the best for their teens, their actions don’t demonstrate their desire.

The questions I have for you are:

  • What are you willing to sacrifice to help your teen(s) become the best version of him/herself?

  • What would you do differently to bring the best in him/herself?

  • Why do you follow the pattern of this world?

Most coaching businesses succeed because they are giving solutions to fix adults who must break their set mindset to achieve freedom in every area of their lives. Adults would pay tons of money to have a successful business or to experience freedom.

Why do you have to wait until your teens become adults to really teach them and invest in their personal growth so they can be on purpose at your age?

Why does society have to wait to fix adults when society can give great tools to teens who will become eventually adults with the right frame of mind?

We are not trying to create robots or teen(s) who will know everything, but we are building a better society. A society where teens become responsible, fulfilled adults who will contribute to the betterment of society.

You see the problem is that we reproduce what we have learnt when we are meant to break the cycle.

Do not wait until your teen(s) are all grown up, to start coaching them and investing in their mindset.

I know you will say that they must learn from their own experience.

I totally agree with this. However, there are concepts, questions, and mind mapping, they must be aware of to make their own choice.

As you know, knowledge is power and if they don’t know anything different, how would they choose what is best for them?

You will only teach them from what you know, your own experience and perspective.

Most teens find it difficult to listen to their parents. Therefore, it is important as parents to find help somewhere else to maximize your teen(s) growth.

As a parent, your role is to guide them and give them the best tools, the best opportunities to become who they were called to be.

As a parent there is so much you can do, however, you cannot do everything.

Let me help you, in your teen(s) journey so they can embrace little by little who they are.

When you expose them to opportunities and a coach like me to challenge them, you give them a chance to think outside the box and to be ahead of the game.

I am not trying to impose anything on you, I just want to challenge your mindset.
