For people young and old, having purpose is fundamental to having a meaningful life because it connects you to things that matter deeply to you and gives your life direction. But with young people still figuring out who they are, discovering one’s purpose has a number of other benefits, including: forming their own identity, reduced antisocial behavior and bullying; decreased risky behaviors; and increased academic engagement resulting in higher grade point averages. The spring issue of MASK The Magazine informs readers about the importance of encouraging positive purpose in your child’s life.

As our children grow they are faced with many challenges and choices that come across their path. How can parents help teens find their purpose? How can parents foster positive purpose? How can we help make sure our teen’s passion isn’t hijacked by negative choices? Whether you have a Pre-K, elementary, middle school, high school or college student, Dr. Shefali Gandhi offers an age-appropriate guide in the “Making The Grade” section to helping your child identify their passions and purpose.

Readers will learn how to be a parent, not a dictator. “When parents support instead of push, kids find their passions and interests and learn to follow their own paths toward success and happiness,” says Katie Hurley, author of “The Happy Kid Handbook; How to Raise Joyful Children in a Stressed Out World.” When we allow our children the space to discover their passions, instead of fulfilling our own, we tell our son or daughter that we believe in them and their ability to lead their own life.


From cover to cover, MASK The Magazine is packed with parenting advice from medical doctors, clinical psychologists, professors, and professionals, as well as moms, dads, and high school students.
