Teenagers: How Can They Help Them Build a Future Project?

AS BOYS TEENAGERS FIND IT DIFFICULT TO PROJECT INTO THE FUTURE AND MAKE CHOICES IN THE DIRECTION. THIS IS NOT INEVITABLE. YOU WILL GET SOME KEYS TO HELP YOUR TEEN CHOOSE A FUTURE.

Professor Marcel Rufo: It is true that teenagers live in the present and the near future, while parents only talk about the past (“When I was that old …”) and the future (“You have to do a good study”). However, Marie Choquet notes that 60% of them have a future project – which isn’t necessarily a guarantee of success! Especially since almost a third of those who have a future project have already changed. That is a good sign for me. That means they can have different desires and adapt.

In my view, the child who quits the piano or changes sports is often a child who is doing well. Whoever gets in the wrong is the one who trains to get a conservatoire first prize or the one who pursues a sport in hopes of becoming an international player, which he probably never will be. Curiosity, dreaming, wanting to discover and conquer are signs of good mental health. Conquering a dream is more important than anything.
