As a parent you may have the impression that your child doesn’t know themselves, and that their responses are mostly vague when asked the inevitable question: “What are you going to do?” It is tempting to let the problem work itself out, but you can offer important guidance throughout this process.
Your collaboration is precious
You know your child better than anyone and can point out their strengths and qualities to help them choose according to their personality.
You can join them in their research, encourage them to participate in internships or volunteer experiences, and help them meet workers in different employment categories. You can also accompany them on visits to cégeps, vocational training centres and even to universities. Visit the Guidance for my child section for advice on how to better support your child.
