Not being seen at home

When I was an adolescent, my mother repeatedly said to me, "You have a good brain, you have to work it out for yourself". My older brother had difficulty learning. So she was with him every day for years, supervising his homework. I was not seen, not heard, and not appreciated.

Not at school either

Something similar happened to my eldest daughter in secondary school. She was not feeling well and was withdrawn at the back of the class. In the 10-minute conversations, I was told by teachers that they could not say much about her because she was "invisible". Indeed, they did not see her.

We are not the only ones

I am sure we were not the only young people who did not feel seen, heard and valued, either at home or at school. It takes much more than the standard question at home: "How was school today?", or the question at school "Who knows the answer to....?".

Is also difficult for parents and teachers

Now I know (from my experience) that for many parents and teachers it is not easy to connect with that difficult adolescent, who wants nothing, hangs around, drinks, and does blow.

Will you join us to change this?

With a whole range of totally different questions and conversation topics, for example as part of our Core Values Game, in Future Labs and webinars, I want to help young people with Nexxdott to be seen, heard and valued. This is so defining and valuable for the rest of their lives!
