How can parents inspire their children to find meaning in life?

Stefan Weitz on the importance of travel, relationships, and the pursuit of happiness.

October 31

So many kids these days are influenced by the YouTube generation, which makes it seem like success and meaning in life is attained through selfies on Instagram.

One way to counteract this is by getting kids connected with groups and organizations that model different behavior. For example, Stefan's daughter attends UN women's rights organization for young people's, where she can be surrounded by and inspired by women who have a greater purpose in life.

Furthermore, parents themselves can model correct behavior. Who you admire, talk about, read about, and interact with, all those things would have a profound influence on what your kids end up doing. Be the change you want to see.
