Does Your Child Tackle New Projects?

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

What Teens Don't See

You:   [gathering your parent-courage]
 “Honey, have you applied for that part-time job yet?” 
 
Teen:  [with rolled eyes]
“Oh, (insert your name). I don’t have any experience they’d be interested in and I can’t think of what to talk about during an interview anyway.”
 
You:  [with amazement] 
“ Yes you do!  Don’t you manage your spending money?  I’ve seen how you save toward that iphone you’ve been wanting.  Those are skills ANY employer wants needs.  There is NO job out there that doesn’t require managing assets from money to supplies.”

Do those last remaining lessons for your nearly-grown offspring feel like . . .

SUMMARY

HELP!  Many a parent of a nearly-grown child feels there is still so much more to teach them, but need a creative idea on how to tackle it all.  

We've been there with our kids.  Despite our passion for helping parents and kids this age, we hit the wall (so to speak) on  how to get their attention to listen to those last critical lessons.  They didn't always want to listen to us.  

That's when we realized that we, or more specifically our kids, had/have a SECRET WEAPON to use.  Your kids (and you) have it too but odds are you haven't recognized it for what it is.  

But before we get to this SECRET WEAPON, if you didn't get a chance to view/read a prior session we taught that relates to this where we covered how to build confidence in our kids, and why our kids have such a challenge with this at their age, and what is the first move you can make to start that confidence ball rolling, Start with THIS to build confidence

Now about that...

What You Might Be Seeing with Your Child

Are they hesitating when considering new challenges? Are they missing opportunities that you know they can tackle?  Do they play a mental tape that slows them down?  We've seen this over and over.  

I was very shy in high school and college.  It wasn't until my mid-20's that I began to pull out of it.  This transformation should have occurred much...
