Are you Overscheduling your teen? on The Empowerment Show with Irene Roth

This week on The Empowerent Show Irene Roth and Traci McDonald will be chatting about if we as adults are overscheduling our teens.

When kids and teens complain of being overscheduled and overwhelmed, we should definitely pause to take a new look at our lives and reprioritize them. Our kids are way too young to feel overscheduled. And if we, as parents, teach them that it is okay, or worse, meritorious to be busy all the time, we can be setting them up for a life time of exhaustion and lack of success. Not only that but they will feel dissatisfied and stressed out all the time.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself and your teens or kids:
  1. What does your child enjoy? Does she/he enjoy playing sports? What kind of sport?
  2. Does your teen enjoy music/dancing? What type does she/he enjoy?
  3. Does your teen do extracurricular activities?
  4. Does your child/teen feel overwhelmed at school?
The World of Ink Network brings you shows each week on topics such as books, writing, interviews, self-help, empowerment, families and much more.
