There are many children that seem to lack motivation or a life focus. They wander through life letting life happen to them rather than taking the initiative—to be deliberate or determined.
How can you motivate them? How can you help them find their place in life? How can you help them to get a life focus?
You could send them for counseling. Or hope and pray that they will soon grow out of it. Or you can be proactive. You could use public speaking to help them find their unique path in life.
You could send sign your child up for a public speaking group. Or you could send him for private public speaking lessons. Or you could make it into a fun project that both of you could do together.
