Teach Love and Dreams
Teens are often surrounded by teachers and teen influencers who tell them how “they can achieve whatever they set their minds to achieve.” For teens experiencing depression (a condition one in five go through) these motivational messages only make their depression worse.
In “Dreams” we see a girl who encounters these motivational messages – on social media, in class, and ultimately from a commencement speaker. She confides to camera that she had trouble processing these messages while feeling so gloomy.
She finds supportive, inspiring stories of teens who work through their depression on yourlifeyourvoice. org. And comes to believe that she can indeed achieve her dreams – starting with simply finding herself again. She urges confused teens to take the first step at yourliftyourvoice.org
Love and respect are at the core of each parenting strategy from Boys Town.
