I'm resisting thinking about August but it is coming faster than I want it to.
I want my children prepared!
My daughter is headed to college two hours away and all I can think about is
"Did I prepare adequately her for this?"
Sadly the answer is "probably not."
So in July I will be doing a 10 days series about REAL LIFE lessons NOT taught in school.
School is good but we need more!
Many of the posts will come right from the concerns that I have about my daughter leaving home. I will be talking to her about these thing in July and making sure that she knows more than she does now.
Wonderful resources for Moms and others
For 14 years I've worked with teens plus I've had a teen of my own in our house for almost that long! I love them but there does come a time when they are ready to move into adulthood. Last month I took a poll on my personal Facebook of all my young adult friends. I wanted to know what things about "adulting" did they feel the least prepared for after high school.
The list they gave me reassured me that the things I want to cover with my daughter were extremely important and right on track!
From July 11th to 20th, there will be a new post each day of Day to Day Adventures (sometimes with a guide or checklist) that will help any mom, dad, aunt, grandma, or grandpa out there to guide their young adult in these areas.
