#90:  Your Teen is Barreling Toward Life After Your House.  Here's 10 Items/Ways to Help Them Launch Smarter and More Prepared!

Here are 10 ideas (in 5 different critical categories) to help expand their thinking and help you sleep better at night

knowing you are finishing your parenting strong.

If you've ever thought to yourself  "they have so much more to learn" leaving you just a bit worried because you've run out of ways or topics to get them to think more as an adult, it could be because you are busy.

 It isn't because you don't care.  You think big and you want big things for your almost-out-the-door "mini you."   But what to cover and how can you pull it off?  

I suspect I am describing thoughts you've had a least some of the time and I've been there too.  I spent many a night while my kids were in high school thinking . . . "now what" and not being able to sleep.   

So for all the "now what's" we've pondered, I am sharing answers I found, ideas I've used at my house, and for other students, too.   

"Skills and adult-prep tasks your child learns now while still a student, will save you running around the day before they are off to that first job or college and wishing you'd done all this earlier. "  Pam 

Grab a pen and paper, and your calendar.  I'll explain how you can make that calendar work to your advantage in this.  I'm going to cover 10 ideas (5 different categories) that can jumpstart that amazing parent inside of you that wants to pour all you can into your teen and wave goodbye to them as they drive off into their future excited and less afraid of what's coming next.  

Here's an episode overview: (listen to audio here)

> [2:00] The parent pitfall you can avoid

> [3:05] Money Prep.  Age 13-15:  Set their financial hub now and they'll be ready for controlling their money flow much easier as an adult.  Age 16-18: Use this simple idea to get them rolling on spending money wisely.  

> [4:40] College Prep.  Don't be tempted to skip this one if your child isn't college-bound.  Life lessons are often hidden in different packages.  Age 13-15: College in the summer for your high school child?  Yes.  Multiple payoffs.  Age 16-18+:  Leverage who they know currently in college right now.

>[7:10] Philanthropy Prep. Age 13-18+: Get them involved in 2 different philanthropy styles and double their learning results.   

>[8:16] Family Responsibility. Bonus Tip for You: Santa doesn't need to be the only one making a list.  You do to and this list will save you time and worry.  You'll look around at graduation and think to yourself "yes, I have it covered".  Age 13-18+:  This brain storm session with your teen will build a tool they'll rely on for life . . . and know to do this for themselves when they are in their first apartment or dorm.  

>[10:00] Life Prep/Habits. Ages 13-18+:  Help your child recognize, gather, document, and file away for future use all their accomplishments, skills and talents.  (Hint: they'll recognize many more that otherwise would remain lost in time.). Why do they need this?  Talking points during Interviews, scholarships, applications and so much more. 

Ages 16-18: Get them thinking about their future with this one question.  Kids are still generally in a bubble and already have one foot out the door.  Help them see what they want and what they can accomplish.  This question is so helpful you might want to answer it too.
