Can’t get your teen out of bed in the morning? Can’t motivate him in school? Libraries and book stores are packed with texts on motivational strategies. Motivational theories range from mathematical models to Skinnerian studies of rats and pigeons but few are helpful. For a practical discussion by counselors, teachers and parents of teens, have a listen or check out BAM Radio.
