A few of my kids’ friends, whom I’ve known since they were little kids, have decided to skip college and are working fulltime jobs. It’s hard to look at them now and not think how time flies. It’s hard to imagine them in having gone through job interviews and pre-employment screening and are now in the 9-5 grind, the kids I used to see running and playing in school.
It’s at these crossroads that many kids have a problem deciding what they want to do. Taking up a job will give them time to make up their minds. As parents, we can only point them to the options and help them find their passions.
