Tips from Shine!

“A lot of teenagers really want an adult who believes in them. If teens don’t have healthy relationships with adults, their confidence and self-worth can be lacking. They are less likely to develop strong communication and social skills that are needed. Teens who have the support of adults in their life often handle things such as bullying, loneliness, and depression better.

This is why mentoring is so important. This is why it’s vital that our teens have someone they can trust to confide in. If you don’t have a teen that you mentor, find one. Pray about who you should build this relationship with, then pursue it.

Here are some tips to help with the process:

  1. Don’t try to be their parent.
  2. Listen.
  3. Donmt betray their trust when they confide in you.
  4. Do fun things with them, something that they enjoy.
  5. Ask questions.
  6. Be dependable.
  7. Be empowering, believe in them.”
