How to Help Your Child Figure Out What They Want to Do After School

How to Help Your Child Figure Out What They Want to Do After School

Sponsored post

Almost from the moment your child starts high school, they are expected to make choices on which subjects to take in order to stand them in good stead for their future. But the reality is that most kids, even those about to complete their final year, aren’t sure what they want to do after high school. This can lead to a certain amount of stress and anxiety for both parents and their soon-to-be-adult offspring.

The truth of it is, whether we as parents are ready for it or not, they are growing up, and only they can make the decision on their future career path. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t play an active role in helping them to do the research and make an informed decision. One of the most important tasks we have as parents is to prepare our teen for adulthood – which can be both rewarding and if we are honest, slightly daunting.

Fortunately, Upskilled have done that homework for you. (I know, what a relief, right?)

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
