Help your child discover who they are and what they are good at.
Thinking about the future can be both an exciting and frustrating time for your child. As a parent, you play an important role in this process – supporting your teen with encouragement and information as they begin their life and career journey. This resource can provide you with insight on how to explore the role of coach and ally for your child.
Before your child starts exploring their options, it's important they take a look at who they are, including what they're good at, as well as their capabilities and learning style. Explore how their choices fit them. One good place to start is Career Matchmaker on-line at www.careercruising.com. Many students will have used this resource in their schools. Check with the career teacher or guidance counsellor for specific login information.
