Helping Teenagers Look Ahead Today

From TODAY, MONDAY July 28, 2008

By Dr Bill Maier

If you want your teenagers to do well in college, make sure they have some sense of direction before they get there.

Kids who know what they want to do with their careers are much more likely to succeed in higher education.

And the time to help them figure that out is during the high school years.

Encourage your teen to explore different career opportunities.

If your child has an interest in medicine, there are numerous opportunities to see what it would be like to work in the medical field.

They could volunteer at a local blood bank, hospital, or a free clinic. Nursing homes and children’s hospitals are always in need of interns.

Kids who love animals might contact the zoo or animal shelter.

Talk to your teen about their interests, and help them get started exploring their future careers today.
