Giving Teens Opportunities to Truly Thrive

Humanity needs the next generation of adults to be in tune with their bodies, nature, and other humans. The best hope we have in developing a world of freedom and true health is through nurturing, guiding, and providing life-connecting activities for kids. Teens are often not ready to make the transition into adulthood, and witnessing how adults are behaving and struggling today makes them want to disassociate and indulge in artificial worlds on screens. The movie “Ready Player One” is a clear indicator that this is being normalized and programmed into the psyche of the collective consciousness. There is so much that we can do to help re-sensitize and provide opportunities to teens to prepare them to deal with the real world in the most positive ways possible. They need to know that there is so much more to life than what they can do on a screen. Role modeling healthy off-screen behavior with other adults is one major way we can help. Offering spaces and resources for teens to gather to interact, have fun, and learn from each other is also a crucial step in this process.
