Two teens whose families I was mentoring - recently got into medical colleges that they were aiming for.
To say that I am thrilled would be an understatement.
I am really so happy.
The children are brilliant, talented, motivated and focused.
And their parents are loving understanding and focused on helping their children achieve their goals.
Why did they need mentoring then?
Would be the most obvious question to ask.
Because the goal they wanted to achieve was huge.
When they came to me - each member of these families was doing whatever they could to ensure that their children reached their ambitious goals.
And yet somehow things were not working out.
Every conversation was turning into an argument in their houses.
This was creating rifts in a families with strong attachments.
And resulting in brilliant students performing way below their capability.
Through my mentoring I built empathy.
I answered questions that they had about each other's seemingly weird behavior.
I helped them to build better channels of communication within the family.
I helped them resolve conflicts.
I helped them calm down and work without fear and anxiety.
To put it very briefly I guided them on how to work as a team.
To pull together when required
To push together when required.
Not pull when someone else was pushing and push when someone else was pulling.
And the results of the team work are now there for all of them to enjoy.
Often parents hesitate to reach out for mentoring.
There is a stigma attached to reaching out for help with parenting.
And that results in losing out on achieving goals that are just beyond the reach of the child.
If you think your child has it in them to achieve what they dream of...
Don't allow the lack of teamwork in your family to come in the way of their dreams.
