Growing up isn’t like it used to be; living in an interconnected and ‘switched-on’ world adds additional pressure to young people. Our goal is to provide a safe space for young people to understand their pressure points. TLT is an additional support to parenting and is no way a replacement.
Some Topics We Cover
Identity - Development of the self in society
It is such a basic question, “Who am I?” but sometimes, it can be a difficult question to answer. It is however one of the most important questions we will ever answer! Imagine how powerful it would to emerge from your schooling career knowing exactly who your are, and what you would like to accomplish with your life? It is possible, if you understand who you are. We believe that it is absolutely vital for a person to know and understand their identity, before they go onto do anything in this world! Knowing who they are will allow a young individual to make decisions from a place of being ‘comfortable in their own skin’, knowing their strengths and weakness.
Self-concept formation and self-motivation
Self-concept is a term we use to describe what we think of ourselves. People who have a positive self-concept respect themselves, take good care of themselves and do not allow others to treat them badly. Our most important relationship is with ourselves – are you taking good care of yourself? Taking care of your health? Being careful about the kinds of friends you hang out with? Are you being kind to yourself? Setting goals for obtaining your dreams? When you think about what you want to achieve in life, this falls under Self Motivation. What motivates you and keeps you going?
