Is the program only for parents?
No, other adults in a child's life can take on the role of coach. The role could be filled by foster parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, or others, who have close contact with the child.
What is the best time to begin helping my child with the career journey?
While it is never too late, there are great advantages in beginning to work with your child as soon as possible. In fact, we strongly encourage parents of grade 10 students to attend to allow more time for you and your child to review various career options. The goal of starting as early as possible is to ensure that your child will make the best decisions in terms of course selection, education and training and career goals.
Should I attend if my child already states he/she has a career goal?
Yes, it is just as important to attend a session when your child has a career goal. Parents as Career Coaches will provide both you and your child with the information you need to carefully examine the career goal and to ensure that it is the best choice for your child. Then you can support your child in planning the next steps toward that career goal.
