Here’s the story we discuss this week:
“My oldest son is incredibly academically gifted. School just comes easily for him, and it always has. The trouble is, he doesn’t really care about anything. I see other kids his age going after big goals, and my child just doesn’t seem motivated at all. He has so much talent, but he’s just not using it!
This is hard for me, because I have been very ambitious as long as I can remember. It’s just how I’m wired. I think I’ve been waiting for him to find something he really cares about so that he will apply himself, but I am beginning to think I just have to accept that this is who he is.
It is very hard to watch.”
