Now that school is back in session, you may have noticed that your teen daughter is more stressed than usual. Not a complete surprise, right? With so many tests, accelerated courses and other academic pressures, it’s very easy for teen girls to feel stressed and downright exhausted. Giving your daughter healthy outlets to share her feelings and build her confidence is key to helping her establish positive habits.
Now that the summer is over and the school year is underway, let’s talk about some of the benefits of getting your daughter a life coach this fall:
The start of a new school year marks the beginning of a new journey – including a whole new set of teachers, classes, activities, and even friends. Any transition, especially a transition from middle school to high school, can be overwhelming. A life coach can help your teen daughter with this transition by listening to her thoughts and concerns objectively, and most importantly, giving her the tools to navigate new challenges. The more support your daughter has from a trusted third party, the easier the new school year will be for her.
Academic & personal goal-setting.
Often teen girls have no understanding of how to set goals that align with their values - which is unfortunate because much research shows that setting goals has a direct effect on motivation and achievement levels. An experienced life coach may be a catalyst for helping your teen learn how to set meaningful goals, giving her the framework to achieve academic and personal goals while holding her accountable in the process. Once your teen accomplishes even just one of her goals, her confidence and motivation is sure to increase.
Balance and time management.
As the school year gets into high gear, many teen girls often begin to feel overscheduled and overworked. A life coach can help your daughter learn how to balance her academic responsibilities with outside activities and social commitments. Working directly with a life coach will teach your daughter the importance of time management, a critical life skill she’ll need in college, career, and beyond. Your daughter will soon discover that having a better life balance will enable her to be more successful both in school and outside of school.
