Twas The 10 Great Student Prep Ideas Before Christmas

 (see podcast above)

Regardless of the time of year, every parent will recognize this:

"Twas the Night Before . . . (Christmas, Summer, Fall) Break and ALL thru the house not a student was stirring, not even a mouse."

Yes, this happened at my house, too.  I wanted them to have a bit of downtime, but I also wanted to keep them on a growth pattern.  

Today, more than ever, ever, our kids need to build their "edge".  

Let's reframe how we look at those amazing "break" days and get starting on their "edge".  

The gifts of days free of traditional school are just as described . . . gifts.  Those days don't come to we parents, of course.  So how can we help our kids capitalize on those day-gifts?  

Whether to earn extra money, to get ahead, to catch up, to add nuggets to their resume, it IS the perfect time to allow downtime AND sneak in that all important growing and learning we want them to have.

This podcast comes to the rescue with 10 great ideas.  We practically guarantee you'll find at least one that is a perfect "fit" for your "nearly grown" child/family.

If your "nearly grown" needs help discovering, recording, and documenting their accomplishments, see our prior podcast for a checklist to do just that:

 Precious parents, we have such a wonderful and yet challenging gift of raising our kids, don't we?  It calls for every bit of our energy, stamina, and yes...patience as they round the corner to adulthood.  You can do it.  You are doing it.  You are every bit the hero even though you might not feel it.  From those that have gone before you, to those that go after you, you ARE making a difference.  

Please take care and as we always say:

You CAN Have Success in the Middle of it ALL
