We can all agree on one thing. The teenage years are hard. Really hard. From peer pressure, to trying to fit in, to uncertain friendships it always seems like there is something going on that can be destructive to confidence. And even though they might seem like they’re overly confident and certain of all the answers, they need a bit of guidance and motivation as well.
TED talks are great way to help your teen without having them feel like you’re breathing down their necks. Every teen needs to find their self confidence, and while that has to mostly be of their own discovery, these TED talks can help set them down the right path.
We all have our bad days, and teenagers are no exception. It can sometimes feel like they’re in some sort of teenage funk when the reality is the world is just feeling a little extra heavy that day. No need to panic though, because often the only thing they need is a little inspiration to remind them life isn’t all that bad. These TED talks are great for those rainy days when your teen isn’t feeling completely like themselves and they need a little extra motivation.
Its true, most teenagers think that they know almost everything and they’re ready to conquer the world, thats just the way it is. However, we parents know that there are quite a few things that they don’t know and it can be difficult sometimes to teach them these things. Let’s face it, teenagers are stubborn. They don’t want mom and dad telling them how to live their life, and that’s where these TED talks can help. They’ll help give your teen some of the tools they’ll need without having them feel like their parents are telling them what to do.
We all know reading is important, but with busy schedules and varied interests, it’s tough to get your teen to sit down with a good book–and even harder to find one they’ll actually enjoy. Whether your teen is rekindling a love for reading or is looking to find that love, audiobooks are a great way to breach the barrier into the world of literature. These fantastic audiobooks will make sure your teenager won’t want to stop listening, and many of them can help introduce important social topics that are important for them to understand. Not to mention, these books are all great for you to listen to together with your teen, as you’re sure to love them too.
Okay, so we’re also throwing in this bonus post. While it isn’t a Podcast, Ted Talk or Audio Book these documentaries are also a great way to expand your teen or tweens outlook on the world and slip something both educational, but entertaining in under the radar. Plus, they make for a great way to do something together as a family.
There’s a lot going on in our world right now, and its important to make sure that your teen is staying caught up to the world they’re soon to venture out into. These documentaries are a great way to keep your teen both informed and entertained, and they can even be a great bonding experience for the whole family! Not to mention that every one of these documentaries will leave your teen feeling inspired to live their life to the fullest. From the story of a lonely Orca in a theme park, to a small-town Indian girl who broke stereotypes to become a champion archer, there’s a documentary for all teenage preferences.
