How To Get Your Teen ‘Un-Stuck’ (without doing it for them!)

All too often at the first sign of uncertainty or confusion, many students will immediately ask for help from the teacher or someone sitting next to them or a someone at home when it’s homework.

 

It’s as if they expected every single concept to “click” right away – and when one didn’t, they immediately go into panic mode.

 

This is the behaviour of toddlers. It is not what a student in high school or college should be doing.

 

They need to spend some time persevering with the task at hand and trying to figure it out for themselves.

But, how exactly do they go about trying to figure it out?
How do you GUIDE them into working things out for themselves WITHOUT doing it for them?

Well, that is where my ‘6 Steps To Getting Unstuck’ come in :)

Learning From The Mistakes Of Others

The idea of ‘failing forward’ means that it can actually be a positive, to ‘fail’ or make a mistake (and do so many times over) as long as you are learning from it and moving onwards and upwards in some way as a result of what you’ve learnt.

Good advice.

But what if there was something better?

There is a way to move forwards, onwards and upwards without actually having to fail first.
