How to Help Your Child Begin Thinking About Their Future Career Possibilities
Going out on her own, she discovered how hard it was to attract business. To deal with that frustration, she introduced herself to the web, social media, and then in 2005, blogging. “Now, everything I do is sourced in social media and networking on the internet, and my business is international.”
Why Is This Important?
“Many children don’t have a sense of direction when they arrive at school. Parents play a vital role in positioning their children in school to begin to think about their futures, about the WHY behind going to school: to fulfill a larger purpose for their lives as they become adults.”
What Are the Key Lessons Learned Here?
“Start early to give your children the WHY behind going to school. Talk to them consistently about how they can use their talents, their smarts, the unique gifts they have to create something wonderful for their life in the future. Consistently talk with them about their passion, purpose and meaning.”
