Tip – Asset #40  Youth is optimistic about his or her personal future.

How do your children feel about their futures? Ask them often what and how they think of the future. Watch and listen to help them identify their interests.  Encourage them to think of and make lists of what they like to do and what they are good at.  Ask neighbors, friends, and co-workers to talk about their jobs with your kids. Link older youth with people in jobs using those skills and interests so they may learn more about the jobs and how one would get there. And always remember that your view toward the future will have a great effect on their views.
