We want our children to grow up to be productive and happy adults, who are flexible and confident enough to handle the challenges life inevitably offers. The world is changing more rapidly than our scope of understanding or ability to keep up. How do parents coach our teens to prepare? Loving them, relying on schools to provide guidance, and hoping for the best is not enough. Teens need REAL information relevant to current world situations, to process, discuss and reflect upon so they are prepared to make the major decisions coming their way. When does that usually happen? When do people really imagine and learn about life choices? When do they plan their lives with guidance and information? After they graduate? After or while applying to colleges? After they decide college is not for them? Or after they drop-out of high school because it doesn't seem to support their needs? Or when they are already out of the nest, trying to find their place in the job market? Think about it. When did you plan for your future? Get Real! offers students a unique, personal journey with an opportunity to focus on their future in practical ways, learn tools for both classroom and the workforce success, so they can confidently begin building the life of their dreams. This Get Real! Parent Companion offers parents a way to travel along on that journey, read view timely information about the world, exchange ideas and personal experiences and actively help coach their teen through the challenging transition into adulthood.
