'Unsticking' an unmotivated teen boy
Webinar 2 - From Boys to Men Webinar Series with Maggie Dent
From Maggie Dent's bestselling book, From Boys to Men, this webinar stands alone or as part of our 3-part webinar series.
It's very common (but also pretty exasperating) for tween and teen boys to become unmotivated about things like schoolwork, tidying up after themselves or changing their clothes. While these things might matter to parents and teachers, there are many biological, neurological, physical, hormonal and psychological changes that make motivation challenging for the average adolescent boy.
While we hope the situation is temporary, it can become a permanent mindset so in this webinar Maggie shares some practical things we can do (and things we should avoid) at home and at school to 'unstick' a son whose motivation is stuck. This will be helpful whether you have a 14-year-old who you just can't understand or an 18-year-old you can't get off your couch.
» what motivates boys to do well (and it isn't stickers and trophies!)
» how to build a boy's autonomy
» the power of positive noticing
» the three keys to motivation
» why school often demotivates boys (especially middle school)
» supporting boys at school & re-engaging reluctant boys
