4 Part Framework to Developing The Success Life Skill

👇 Podcast:   Parenting Your "Nearly Grown"   JUST.   GOT.   EASIER. 👇 
 Is "life success" found in a classroom?

 

Your teen needs an education OUTSIDE of the classroom. 
It should never stop.  

Can you find the mistake?

You are so excited.  You finally visit this HUGE museum.  It's several floors and each is olympic-sized.  The museum covers thousands of years of history.  You are overwhelmed with seeing beautiful paintings, artifacts, manuscripts, jewels, and ancient money.  Wow.  You and your best buddy and walk thru the whole museum.  It takes hours and your head is spinning with all you saw.  (you wish you'd worn more comfortable shoes). 

Two weeks later, you ask yourself . . . . "what did I see there?"  [cue the cricket sounds]. 

Note:  the answer to "can I find the mistake"  is found in the podcast.  

What went wrong?  

We could ask the very same question of our teens.  They work so hard and do their best to absorb all that comes at them daily.  Tests, grades, ACT-SAT, and more.  It's overwhelming.

They learn math, science, history, and english.  All of those topics are wonderful and needed, of course.  But it's overwhelming.

But what about HUGE topics needed for "real life"?  

Just to name a few:  networking, negotiations, smart spending, debt/credit, insurance, how to "be the author of their own life", and of course what long-term success really takes.

Bigger hint:  It's the lessons they teach themselves during and AFTER formal education that they will remember . . . for a lifetime.  

How Can You Teach This Concept to Your Teen?

It's not as hard to get this concept over to your teen as you think.  Your biggest move is to get lessons OUTSIDE of the classroom - that they set up and learn for themselves.  That's what this podcast is designed for - to help you start this very thing.
