On a few occasions I’ve talked about how the anxiety and depression of high school kids has certainly been on my radar the past few years. And one survey said anxiety and depression are the main issues for about 70% of teens surveyed. And many of them are anxious and depressed because they don’t know what they’re gonna do after high school.
Because after you finish high school, things get mighty real. Mom and dad don’t pay your rent, buy your food, or maintain your car.
And you’ll have a difficult time, at best, without a plan. Especially if your vision for yourself doesn’t fit into the so-called “normal path.” And the “normal path,” usually means college or no college. Imagine. Only two choices. Same ol’ same ol’. Blah, blah, blah.
OK, who’s even more anxious and depressed now?
From my personal experience, I can say it’s crucial for parents and teens to communicate, openly, about options and decisions for life after high school.
Because we live in a time when young people have incredible options. And most of them didn’t even exist when we parents were in school.
Yeah, the evidence backs me up on this. College is absolutely not required for many, if not most, jobs and careers anymore. And, as Martha Stewart said, that’s a good thing. Because college has become excessively expensive. Plus, too many young people pursue degrees that won’t even pay for themselves in the real world.
I’m sure you’ve heard at least some of the news reports on college debts. Right?
So, if you (or your kids) are interested in alternatives to college, consider RondaReady YOUniversity. It’s a course designed to help young people, starting out in the workforce, focus on and achieve dreams and goals. Through 3 main, clearly explained steps.
YOUniversity is based on the same System I’ve used to help business owners and entrepreneurs ramp up their sales and profits. I’d love to tell you more about it. But I’d really like to hear about your own situation to see if YOUniversity is right for you.
I’m confident it can help you figure out who you are and where you want to go in your life. And I want you to know you have options. Because just knowing can reduce (and even get rid of) those anxious and depressed feelings. But let’s talk about it and see. Book a free call with me in the calendar below.
