School Rules #6


The doodles decorating the front of your teen’s binder. The hours spent putting together an outfit. The way your teen talks endlessly about a video game. These are all ways your teen may be secretly showing their hidden talents and interests in art, design, or coding. It’s your job — as their parent — to examine the clues and support them in finding their passion. School is important, but so is exploring personal interests. Not every teen intuitively knows what they love until an adult asks them the right question. So use time after school wisely by asking questions to uncover possibilities.
