know thyself

know thyself

She hates choosing between options.  “What was your favourite part of the day/movie/trip?” always elicits a look of mild panic and an: “All of it.”

This summer’s project in homeschooling, Career Prep we’re calling it, is forcing her to choose.  What Color is Your Parachute for Teens makes her list, then order the lists, then write only the top three. Here she’s ordering her Top 10 skills.

It’s good for her.  She’s learning a lot about herself, and a lot about her process.

    Thanks, Sarah. I was inspired by you to pick that book up for my son as well as “Getting Real: Helping Teens Find Their Future” and “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.” We haven’t jumped into them yet, but we will soon. You are always an inspiration to me!

    p.s. I’ve also started knitting my 8″ squares for KAS and will be spearheading an 8″ square campaign at the California Homeschool assoc.’s annual conference next week!

    Thank you – we found this book at our library and our 16 year old has actually read some of it. He just doesn’t want to think about the future in concrete terms…
