If your teen can’t resolve their choices by this Saturday, that’s ok and it’s quite normal.
It’s time for them to be uni-focal by ignoring all distractions, limiting/excluding social-media usage and just concentrating on the task at hand. Get them to set the whole issue aside until the exams over – by then everything will look differently and they’ll have time to focus on college and career preferences.
Now is the time to be single-minded about preparation for the exams. To do this they must focus on work and block out anything that’s not essential to the task at hand – prioritize their time for study, but do include some exercise, a little socialising, and enough sleep.
When the exams are over then they should focus solely on finalizing their choices by researching and talking through their preferences with whoever is helping them (most need hands on help). And remember it’s not for ever, it’s only for the next phase of their life.
It’ll all be over soon and hopefully the sun will arrive for a good summer
If you enjoy doing something, you will ultimately do it well. Pick subjects that you have liked, enjoyed and shown an enthusiasm for. So often you can pick a subject because of the teacher, maybe you like them or hear they are good, but it might not be the subject you would enjoy the most. Although a teacher or parent’s input is very important, you are going to be the one who has to do the subject. So make sure you are interested in learning that subject. It makes your chances of success far greater.
Sometimes the easy choices are not the right ones. If you have an interest in a career or course area which involves a particular subject you consider challenging, be brave and take it now. A lot of students make the mistake of choosing just one science subject. If you like science, be smart, keep your options open and take a second one. This doesn’t mean that you are choosing a science based career at this stage, but you will be better prepared to make that decision if you eventually do. For example, it would be advisable to take Maths & Physics for engineering but it’s essential to have Honours Chemistry for Nutrition & Dietetics. Be brave now. Read the rest of this entry »
