Parents, Give It a Try

 Podcast:   Parenting Your "Nearly Grown"   JUST.   GOT.   EASIER.   

 How up to speed are you on:

  • money
  • current events
  • ways to sneak last bits of wisdom to your kids before they enter adult life?

Not sure?  Then this fun quiz (podcast link above) is for you. 

The questions in this podcast are designed to:

  • catch your "almost-out-the-door's" attention
  • show you how you can use current events and data to sneak in learning
  • and yes, impress your kids with some of today's current famous names

As our teens and young adults get older, the more they pay attention to "outside" sources.  As parents, when we learn to harness that crucial connection, it's a powerhouse way to not only communicate to them, but sneak in information they need to know.

Have fun with this.  Use the thought process as a guide to other ways you can "reach 'em."  

Till next time . . . and . . .

Does Your Child Tackle New Projects?

 Podcast:   Parenting Your "Nearly Grown"   JUST.  GOT.   EASIER.   

 What does your child do when a new opportunity or challenge occurs?

  • avoids it
  • takes 3x longer to tackle it
  • feels inadequate
  • doesn't know where to start?

Odds are high you picked at least one of the above.

None of those responses are surprising.  Your "nearly grown" child still has some growing to do on the "rational/language" side of the equation while their "emotional" growth is practically complete.  

But, of course, tackling new things?   You and I know it is an absolute must in their becoming the very best they can be.    Of course, learning how to do this sooner rather than later?  It helps them get where they are heading faster and wiser.

How can you teach them to look at those opportunities and challenges?

AND

How can they master the steps to keep moving forward and avoiding the fear,...

How can they make the most of college?  Generally it's only 2-4 years.  The first year is the toughest.  They need to set solid groundwork almost with their first foot on campus.

Have you started your "nearly grown" on this skill yet? Here's How.

 Podcast:   Parenting Your "Nearly Flown"   JUST.  GOT.  EASIER.
