Helping Your Teen Decide What to Do After High School

While you are thinking about this, you are surely confused and looking for help to help your child. As a parent, you must have always given the best to your child and now during this decisive phase of life, you don’t want your child to settle down for something you find is just OK.

Well, you need to understand that what seems just OK to you may be an aspiration for your child. Today, every stream has a huge scope with succeeding job roles and ample opportunities. As an individual, your child carries his/her potential with a creative inclination towards a stream of choice. Gone are the days of Engineers and Doctors, it is now the era of inventive potential with a passion-driven aspiration to reach a career of dreams. Your child may choose science, engineering or management, may want to become an artist or feels good about becoming a journalist; believe they are all equally fruitful.

Also, as a budding youth, your child may just be fascinated with a stream, but may not know about it in depth. Here, it is important to help your child recognise the right path.

An ideal approach to understanding the thoughts of your child and wisely conveying yours is to sit together and talk. Remember to take it as a healthy discussion, not a debate and follow the following

  1. Start the discussion on a positive note and make your child feel comfortable talking to you.
  2. Listen patiently to what your child wants to share and do not interrupt.
  3. Next, convey your thoughts.
  4. If you both are unable to convince each other, take an unbiased expert consultation.
  5. Finally, remember to respect your child’s final decision.
