"This is such a practical way to prepare our teens for life. Melissa spells it out, and presents it in bite-sized and manageable ways so that parents can feel confident their kids are capable of 'adulting'! "
“A ship is always safe at the shore, but that is not what it is built for."
In no time, they will be leaving home and finding their way. Imagine a teen who is confident and READY for those first steps of adulthood.
What if you could know for sure that your teen is more prepared and ready for those first curve balls life throws at them?
And working through a common set of life skills to help prepare them for adulthood.
The LIFE 101 Course is here as a TOOL to help you prepare your teen for adulthood!
You may find that as your teen hits high school, the reality of adulthood around the corner becomes clear to them. That was the case with our oldest.
But not only did adulthood around the corner become a reality, it also made her very anxious and overwhelmed.
We looked for curriculum and workshops available and we couldn't find what we were looking for, so we created it! :)
Each week we had her work through a lesson and we watched her confidence grow as she began to see this whole adulting thing is not as scary once you know what to expect.
Imagine the same transformation for your teen as well!
Week by week, watch the overwhelm go down and the confidence grow as lesson by lesson they become a LIFE 101 PRO!
Here are the topics we will cover in easy to understand lessons.
We start with helping your teen inventory their skills and finish with creating a resume that will represent them well.
Not only will your teen be ready for interviewing, but they will also have a game plan for AFTER the interview.
Your teen will know what expenses to plan for and how much money they should have before they jump.
Your teen will create a budget and making to sure to budget for priorities - including fun! We also touch on the power of compound interest.
When we are no longer there to remind them of priorities, we want them to be ready for that. This section talks about everything from self care to time management.
By your teen going through this section you help them not only be ready for working in a professional workplace, but also be on track to stand out and THRIVE!
We asked if they would recommend the program to other teens:
"Yes, I think a lot more teens need to use and learn about this kind of stuff because they don't teach it in schools."
"Definitely! It gives a look into the adulting life that most homeschooled kids don't get a chance to see."
They want to know this information, they just don't know how to ask for it.
We wanted to make sure the course was affordable, but still deliver the quality to keep your teen engaged as they went through the lessons. If we charged the actual value of the knowledge your teen will gain from taking this course, it would be way to expensive. Can you imagine paying even a tenth of what you paid the school of hard knocks for this course?! You will pay nowhere near that though because I want this to be an easy yes for you to start preparing your teen for those first steps of adulthood.
Got more questions? I've got answers! :)
15 and up. Once your teen starts working through the lessons, the reality of growing up really seems to sink in and they begin planning for it.
There is a button inside each lesson for them to download the worksheet.
Just e-mail me, I am happy to give you an extension.
The goal is for your teen to work through all the lessons and we have noticed a time limit helps keep them motivated to finish.
We have a checklist of all the lessons for you in the introduction section and we totally recommend you make a copy and check the lessons off as they go through them. They also have "next steps" in each lesson.
If you are looking to see them putting these lessons into action, ask them what their next step was and explain how they are accomplishing it.
Regardless of whether or not you decide to purchase the LIFE 101 Course, I encourage you to begin setting aside money to get tools to help prepare your teen for adulthood right now.
Some of you already know this is EXACTLY what you have been looking for to help prepare your teen to not only survive but thrive once they leave home. If the lump sum of $149 seems overwhelming at this time, consider our payment plan option and treat the cost as if it were a CO-OP class.
No matter what you do - don’t wait until they are already graduated and left home, invest in them NOW and begin the process of preparing them for adulthood.
On the journey with you,
