Many parents wonder how to motivate their teenage girls. They may wonder how to get their teen off the computer or cell phone, how to get them outside doing anything except sitting around doing nothing. Many young girls lose interest in things because they do not have the right motivation behind them. Teenage girls need to be shown the right methods of motivation.
Encouragement is the Key to Motivation
There are some things that parents can do to help teenage girls stay on the right track and encouragement is the key to motivation. Troubled teens often hear endless criticism, nagging, and complaining about their poor performance. Parents may have a tough time finding something praiseworthy about their child. But, people do better when they feel better and teenage girls need compliments for something they feel good about or to be acknowledged for who they are to improve their motivation.
Teenagers need to be allowed to make their own mistakes providing it is not a life altering decision. Some of them will succeed and others will fail, but trying is the best kind of motivation. For parents, when your child does make a mistake, let her know that she tried and that is the most important thing. Let her know that she will have to try again for the things that she really wants to have in life. Parents need to let their teenage girls know that they are valued and they have important things to do. When teens understand that they have a lot of self-worth, it makes it easier for them to achieve goals. Understanding self-worth now will build the confidence necessary for teenage girls to be motivated as they grow and get older.
