Teach Your Teen to Accept Help
The Beatles got by with a little help from their friends, but that impulse to accept help doesn’t always come naturally to people. Luckily, there is a way to teach your teen to reach out to others when they need help in the future, and it starts by getting them to contribute to their community now. When we give back to others, we learn that there is no embarrassment or shame in needing help, making it more likely that we’ll accept help when our time comes. Resilient individuals give themselves permission to lean on others.
