The journey between childhood and adulthood doesn’t come with a roadmap. In fact, it can present with some of life’s greatest challenges and opportunities. We specialize in supporting high school and college aged folks.
Parenting today has changed dramatically from previous generations. In the past, most parents lived near their extended family and were able to receive guidance and support from experienced parents. Today’s parents often live across the country from their own families of origin leaving them to figure out all aspects of parenting for themselves. Without these critical benefits of living near extended family, parents must now turn to their community for the support they crave.
It's a different world. While every generation utters those words, the rapidly changing nature of modern life has shifted the skills our children need to thrive as adults. No longer are young adults entering the workforce and spending decades with the same employer, slowly moving up the ladder. The skills our children need to develop now are less about obedience and more about initiative as they shift employers and even careers multiple times in adulthood. Resilience, flexibility and self-discipline are critical to functioning in the workforce.
Even the way we use information has changed. No longer do children need to memorize vast amounts of data to have on hand. That information is now available right on our phones. Instead, we need to help our children develop critical thinking, communication and problem solving skills to navigate our diverse world.
Parent support provides today's parents with the tools and strategies needed to help their children build the critical life skills necessary for adulthood.
