The students I mentor come at various stages in their lives. Some are making transitions later in life while many of the students I mentor are taking their first steps into adulthood. This section is devoted to the concerns of parents (and their families) whose young adults are facing transition into adulthood.
Parents want their children to be happy, healthy and successful. One of the proven ways to ensure these objectives is to provide the young adult with an opportunity for directed self-exploration. Those areas of exploration include, but are not limited to, a person’s unique brain organization, natural interests, innate abilities and internal sense of purpose.
Many parents in our culture think nothing of buying cars for their children. They often send them off to school without a direction or vision with the mistaken notion that they will find themselves in college. Yet, they balk at investing in the search for a life-path that leverages their innate aptitudes and natural interests; a gift that has profound lifelong benefits.
According to statistics and contrary to widespread belief, many young adults will not find their answers about their life path through their college experience. Nearly 70% of college graduates will not end up in a career that matches the major they invested time and money pursuing. Many young people need additional time and guidance (they're simply not yet ready) before attending college. And all need to shift out of a high school mentality to a mindset that is beneficial for real life (college, trade school, future career objectives, sustainable life work, etc.).
In training with Randy, the student becomes an empowered adult - conscious and connected. The role of the parent needs to shift from manager to model and consultant in response to their child’s transition. This is a critical piece as they acquire the skills necessary to make sound decisions. The most effective change a parent can make is to demonstrate a healthy life transition. Randy also works with parents to best support this transition into wise adulthood.
