Is it possible to change the way people think?

Is it possible to change the way people think?

Typically when parents enroll youth into Life Power’s programs, they want our staff to change something in their youth. Whether its a negative attitude, poor grades, or behavioral issues, parents envision their youth leaving our program totally different than when they came. But do we have the power to change someones thinking?
I’d say no, we can’t change people. But we can influence a person to make a change. And this only happens through relationship. As our music and arts instructors train youth they devlop healthy, trusting relationships. Youth feel like they can trust our instructors and allow them input into their lives. This input is invaluable and does not happen without a persons permission. Only then is it possible for youth to change, not because we’ve forced them to but because they have decided to.
