LIFE AFTER HIGH SCHOOL
Conversation Starters for Families
Sometimes, for families with teens, conversations around life after high school can feel stressful. We developed this deck of cards in partnership with student and adult leaders at Challenge Success, to help families make slight but intentional shifts in how they discuss life after high school. This deck is an opportunity for honesty and recalibration between parents and teens…literally, a chance for each to “show their hand,” and “lay all the cards on the table.” This is also an excellent (and free) resource for grandparents or other family members, educators, youth leaders, clergy, teachers or college guidance counselors. Inspired by Jewish wisdom, we hope that these conversation starters will offer healthy and productive ways of discussing the college admissions process and other post-secondary choices.
