Conversations with your Children
Although they may not always say it, students think a lot about their experiences at school and the options available to them after secondary school. Working on their Individual Pathways Plan is an opportunity for your children to intentionally reflect on the following key questions: 
  • Who am I?
  • Who do I want to become?
  • What are my opportunities?
  • What is my plan for achieving my goals?  
Take every opportunity to engage them in conversations. These can be planned opportunities such as setting aside a specific time to talk, or they can be or informal conversations. Informal conversations can take place at any time, such as during dinner or a walk. It may take some encouragement, but once they start talking, your child will enjoy being able to share their thoughts and benefit from your input. It is never too soon to start. 
Before your start, consider Does your language value all destinations?
