Gratitude and perspective
It can be easy to focus on the difficulties. However, we need to remind ourselves to be open to noticing the good. 

How to motivate early teens
Not children, not yet adults, and a cocktail of emotions. So how do we connect with and motivate them?

We should never underestimate their value to us as teachers, to our parents and most of all to any our students who need help at different times...
