SENIOR STRAIGHT TALK

SENIOR YEAR. SENIOR FEARS.

Let’s face it: Senior year can be scary. There’s no denying the significance of this point in your high schooler’s journey. Take some time to put your Senior’s mind at ease with a heart-to-heart chat about these important topics. It doesn’t have to be scary — just dive right in!

 

DO YOU FEAR THE FUTURE?

Does thinking about the future give your senior the shivers? Maybe they feel strange about all the change that’s coming. Perhaps they’re afraid they might not have everything “figured out.” Reassure them that it’s natural to be a little fearful of the future.

 

ARE YOU ANXIOUS ABOUT YOUR SOCIAL LIFE?

College comes with big changes to your Senior’s social life. Understandably, they might be a little anxious about making new friends — or losing their old ones. Whatever social scaries your Senior faces, make sure they know it’s all totally normal

 

WHAT PARTS OF “ADULTING” ARE YOU MOST AFRAID OF?

Living alone for the first time means more freedom. It also means more responsibilities. Taking care of the laundry, keeping things clean, budgeting, planning for the future — adulting can be hard. You might be surprised what parts of adult life seem scary to your Senior.

 

ARE ACADEMICS CAUSING STRESS?

Of course, there’s nothing like the pressure of getting good grades and staying on top of homework to keep your Senior’s head spinning. And on top of all that, they have to decide on a major that will influence their future career options. Talk through whatever school scaries are keeping your Senior up at night.
