I am a parent of a 12-year-old daughter who seems to lack motivation and direction in life. I want to encourage her to set some goals and work towards achieving them, but I am not sure how to go about it. She seems to be more interested in her gadgets and socializing with her friends than pursuing any productive activities.
I am concerned about her future and want her to be a responsible and successful adult. Therefore, I would appreciate any tips or advice from fellow parents or experts on how to motivate my preteen to set goals and work towards them. Should I start with small achievable goals or set challenging ones? Any specific tools, techniques or strategies that have worked for you or your kids would be helpful.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
