PARENTS, Be Your Teen's Career Coach
With Free Assistance From The Family Corner

You helped them learn to walk and talk. You taught them to share with other kids. You helped with their homework and took them to baseball, soccer, piano, or some other kinds of practice. You taught them the values you hold dear, and you tried to make sure they learned to think for themselves. Now they need help trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives. You can help there, too. It's not as difficult as you may think with help from The Family Corner.
