1. Time Management
    Life after high school is a lot less structured, so knowing how to manage time as a college student with a flexible schedule is an ultra-valuable skill. For starters, teach them how to prioritize, make to-do lists, and avoid over-scheduling or wasting time.
  1. Tap Their Resources
    While they are still in high school, encourage your child to take summer college-prep classes in subjects that interest them and talk as much to their guidance counselors, teachers, coaches as possible. Informational interviews with experts in a field that interests them or seminars on photography (if they love taking photos) are ideal ways to broaden their horizons.
