Hello all! We've got a young adult who's a year away from graduating. She's recently decided to work part time and take a college class on the weekend. Now, she's started panicking about what remains of her high school years and the notion of not having enough time for fun before "adulthood" takes over. (sigh) She is given plenty of day-to-day free time. She has a lucrative schedule, a fun job, and the college class is a breeze. It really seems to be more the idea of adulthood approaching which is bothering her. No matter how many times we encourage her to just relax and enjoy the time - after all, being an adult isn't the end of the world! - she has her moments of stress. Out of curiosity, how do you help your young adults manage what's coming while still enjoying their youth? Thanks!
Hey all! We've been back to school nine weeks now, considering we school year round, and this year I've noticed a significant change in my children's learning. All of a sudden my teens no longer have a desire to participate in family group learning. Whereas before we would do history together and science together, they now prefer me to hand them their textbook and let them work at their own pace. I confess I have mixed feelings about this. It's not that work is not getting done, and done well. It is. I just miss the feeling of unity and involvement. It's as if I'm not doing enough and I'm no longer part of this portion of their education. While I understand things need to change and we need to adapt to their growing needs, the Lord is still working in me to give me peace on this matter. How are things changing in your teens' learning, or have you noticed a change? And how are you dealing with this? Thanks! Cristina
