It is one thing when students are sure of their post-high school plans, but it is totally different when they have no clue or, perhaps more difficult, when they have so many varied plans that you are not sure how to help! How do parents steer students? When is it appropriate to totally back-off? Whether your students choose to take a gap year, work a blue collar job, start a business, go to college, or get married, there are steps you can take to ensure their success. It is best to begin to plan accordingly, setting up your students up for success regardless of their chosen path.
