Being a skilled poker player is about understanding the odds and reading people. My friend, on the other hand, used to read books and have consistent games with friends.After three hours of consistent work, it’s best to chill out for a half hour.Video games, TV and getting some fresh air are good ways for them to relax.Teenagers have adults and peers giving them marks to hit all the time.They don’t need you to set a level for them to live up to but rather coach them.
They want you to walk with them in their pain and discomfort.In coaching the wide receiver, he might say, “What do think happened on that last play?I think you may have taken your eyes off of the ball. I know you can do it.” The first is like a parent who says, “I expect you to get good grades, make wise decisions, and do what I say.” It doesn’t give room for failure.A dad who gives guidance will look deeper at his daughter caught drinking and say, “What happened tonight? The person they are when they’re with their friends on a Friday night is way different than the person they are at home or in the classroom.
It seems like you’re lonely and trying anything to fit in. That doesn’t mean they are fake, it’s just a person whose different selves haven’t merged into a solid identity yet.The phone MUST be left outside the bedroom or study area and no computers or phones in the bedroom after lights out.
