Meditation on Giving Teens Guidance


As adults we serve as children's guides for society's future benefit.

We were each a child who grew and became more visible in the world. If we respect children as individuals who have their own thoughts, emotions, and dreams, they will feel good about themselves and in turn respect us. This back and forth respect and communication bridges the generation gap.

Meditation for Reflection
Choose a quiet place to sit and begin even and regular breathing such as 2 counts to breathe in and 2 counts to breathe out. Keep up this even rhythm throughout your meditation without actually doing the counting.

Reflection meditation is valuable for your teens to learn too - aiding them to calmly work out sticky situations.

Thoughts for this meditation: For adults, teens are our inspirations to act as best we can. Growth is from both sides. The 'adult' is the example and the 'teen' inspires the adult to be their best.

Besides academics, teens need to learn practical living skills and spiritual practices, providing a foundation to live in society as useful adults.

Teenagers walk across a bridge spanning the river of uncertainty, from the security of childhood on one side, to the other side of sole responsibility. It is a swinging bridge, with teenagers swaying at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end, sometimes hanging on precariously along the way, till finally stepping onto the firm ground of independence.

Adults that are around, need to extend a helping hand if teenagers are about to fall, otherwise we should just observe and allow them to master their walk.

The basis for their behavior as teenagers was set before they turned thirteen years old. In the teenage years the fledglings are testing their wings. Adults can guide but not act for teenagers, otherwise they won't reach the end of their bridge to independence, or will be slowed down past the age of twenty.

Parents and teachers should set guidelines for teenage behavior at home and at school, with repercussions made known beforehand.

Teens are individuals
Soon to be adults
Part of our world wide family.
Let's guide their journey
By being the best we can be.


To end your meditation, take a deep breath and slowly release it. After reflection write out any new insights in your journal for contemplation at a later time and for future review.
