Help your Teen, Adolescent, or Child find Motivation to Succeed

Motivating Teens is a topic that concerns a lot of parents. When I was a teen, I struggled with finding the motivation to do homework, study for tests and exams, go to school, go to soccer practice, do chores around the house; really anything.

It appeared as though when faced with any type of task (even the ones I enjoyed doing), it became this long drawn out battle between whoever was trying to get me to oblige and myself (sorry Mom and Dad).
