*Visit a college campus together. It’s a great way to get your child excited about college.
*Show your child how to explore career ideas. He or she can make a list of interests, talents and favorite activities and start matching them with occupations.
*Come up with fun reading ideas. Look for magazines or newspapers your child may like and talk about the books you loved reading when you were your child’s age.
*Help your child set goals for the coming school year. Helps them stay motivated throughout the year.
*Discuss possible extracurriculars your child may want to get involved in.
