Making a Career Map (5-9-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:      In today’s world the path to a career is not necessarily straight.

PRACTICE: Make a map of your own career history.

What was the first thing you did, second, etc. until you got to what you are doing now?

Think about how many points there are on your map. Think about what caused each point to happen and whether each point has a connection to the next.

Share your map and what you learned with your child.

Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, IGGY PECK, ARCHITECT.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
