Dealing with Being Bored

Did you know that boredom stems from sadness?  Think about the young person you work with who describes themselves as bored.  What they are saying is that their  underlying emotion is sadness.  Identifying the emotion provides an opportunity  to take action to address the root cause of the sadness.  Maybe the information we are sharing does not seem applicable to the youth’s experience.  Maybe a personal situation or perception of the environment is impacting the young person’s ability to engage.  It may be a combination of factors.  What is sure is that the “boredom” does not have to be a personal attack on the presenter of knowledge or the innate character of the youth.  Identifying emotions and taking action means getting support and giving support – one to another.
