Career Coaching Your Kids

New or Used: 3 copies from $43.42
Believe it or not, and now more than ever, children need, appreciate, and even seek career guidance from their parents. Following on the phenomenal success of the first edition of Career Coaching Your Kids, the authors' continued research led them to bring out a second edition, completely updated and revised with a new preface and additional new chapter, expanded Parent Tool Kit, and for the first time, exercises for kids by age groups. Too little or too much involvement is an easy trap for any parent. This book emphasizes the value of parental support and, more importantly, shows parents how to help rather than hinder their children's process of career discovery. Drawing on their collective experience in various types of career counseling, the authors clearly describe the lifelong process of career decision making. They identify the different roles that parents can play at each stage and the most appropriate steps to take as children progress and grow into adulthood. Matching key events in the development of children, adolescents, and young adults with the parental tasks necessary to guide but not dictate career choice, Career Coaching Your Kids provides hands-on tools and tips, along with vivid examples and stories, aimed at helping children explore career options.
