Help your teen to explore future plans
Help your teen to explore his or her plans for the future, including career preparation. In high school, encourage your teen to participate in activities that are within their realm of possibilities, thus allowing them to gain a better sense of responsibility. “For example, maybe your teen can't be a firefighter but they can still work directly with firefighters in any number of capacities. Help your teen explore options, interview people and get creative,” wrote Greene.
