When the internet was born in 1990, it changed everything. It lit a grease fire under newly sparked ideas, creating a culture that thrives on information, technology, and 140-character opinions. The turn of the century ushered in a world you had never experienced before, and one your high schooler has never lived without.
Because of this single invention, the world you grew up in is gone. Thanks to sites like YouTube, Khan Academy, Facebook, and Instagram, your children’s education and socialization already looks nothing like what you knew as a kid. It’s no surprise that their career paths probably won’t look anything like yours either.
With high school graduation looming, college decisions to be made, and basic “adulting” to master, are you sure your high school student will be prepared to successfully navigate this new, confusing (possibly terrifying) landscape?
Are you prepared to help them?
