Thousands of articles have been written about helping your teen find the best college match.
(Heck, I probably wrote most of them.)
But there’s one thing that I’ve found missing from the whole “college search” conversation:
Rarely do we give our teens a proper, basic understanding of what they’re actually trying to do here…. of what finding the right college match actually means. And of what they need to wrap their minds around.
Teenagers should have the right foundation for thinking before doing the technical work of searching for the right college fit.
So before you dig into those college search engines or research graduation rates and admissions stats, help your teen lay some basic mental groundwork to really grasp the process.
Share these important ideas with your teen.
(I’ll bet they’ll help you restructure your thinking, too.)
