Parents! It’s going to be O.K

imageWe spent a few days at the annual conference for the Institute of the Challenging Disorganized.

One of our speakers David L. Marcus a journalist and teacher, left us feeling that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

We’ve all been in situations before or know someone whose child just didn’t fit into the box that our society was providing for them.

After doing numerous studies and research projects David explained that most teens that take that “GAP” year are more successful in their post secondary education.

It is shocking how teens who are barely able to drive,shave or vote are required to know “what they want to do with their lives”

Marcus talks about several students that couldn’t make it in the traditional education system but who are now very happy and successful members of society.

As a parent and a professional organizer who has several clients with children it was enlightening to hear of these children that were able to think “outside the box” and achieve what many thought would never happen.

One troubled teen who thrived on adrenalin rushes and continually made bad choices is now a skydiving instructor!

Yup, still getting the thrill and making a living doing it!

so my thoughts to all the parents out there….if your children have a passion good or bad? Maybe, just maybe there is a way to have things turn out OK. Maybe there is a place for them in our world that we just haven’t thought of yet.

Keep your ears to the ground and your eyes open.
