Most parents feel successful when their kids go to college, have a lot of friends, get good grades or succeed in extra-curricular activities. What is the true benchmark for being successful as a parent? Through my experience, I have found that the true parenting measure of success is when your teen includes you at the top of the list of who they turn to when they need help and guidance. As kids start to think about their future and where they will go to college, emotions are swirling on both sides. Kids are worried that they will let their parents, teachers and themselves down if they don’t get into the college of their choice and meet everyone’s expectations. Parents are worrying about the financial implications, adjusting to their kids leaving home and the ever-changing relationship dynamics within the family. This engaging program provides guidance and direction on how to be at the top of your child’s list now and forever before they leave home for good.
