I am a parent of a teenager who has been struggling with finding their sense of purpose and meaning in life. My teen seems to be going through the motions and is not really passionate about anything. They don't seem to have any real goals or ambition, and it's starting to worry me. As a parent, I want my child to be happy and fulfilled, and I believe that having a sense of purpose is key to achieving that.
I have tried talking to my teen about their interests and hobbies, but they seem to have lost touch with what they enjoy and what motivates them. I have also encouraged them to volunteer or take part in community activities to give them a sense of purpose, but they are not very interested.
I would love to hear from other parents or anyone who has experience in helping teens find their sense of purpose and meaning in life. What are some strategies or activities that have worked for you? How can I encourage my teen to explore their passions and drive? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
