From the Inside Flap

Parents exert enormous influence over their children's career choices, as both role models and advisors. But navigating the fine line between guiding and dictating those choices can be difficult, and parents can easily fall into the trap of too little or too much involvement.

CAREER COACHING YOUR KIDS, completely revised and updated in this second edition, gives parents the help they need. Drawing on their collective experience in college-level counseling, career counseling in major corporations, and community service work with high school students and their parents, the authors describe in detail the lifelong process of career decision making. They identify the different roles parents can play at each stage and the most appropriate steps to take as children progress and grow into adulthood.

Matching key events in the development of children, adolescents, and young adults with the parental tasks necessary to guide career choice, CAREER COACHING YOUR KIDS provides hands-on tools and tips, along with vivid examples and stories, aimed at helping children explore career options.

This new edition, based on the authors' continued research, offers a new preface, updated text, and an expanded Parent Tool Kit, and also includes exercises for children to complete--a feature requested by parents themselves. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent guide for parents who want to be able to provide their children with appropriate opportunities to focus their talents and interests into a life path. The book includes many exercises and stories of individuals and goal-setting guidelines, as well as lists of questions to ask your children to help them identify what it is they would like to do when they grow up, a question many of us still ask ourselves well into our careers. In a world of bewildering choices, this book gives parents a chance to help their children (and themselves!) find an anchor that will enrich and bring meaning to their lives. I highly recommend it--you'll refer to this book time and again

If I were to write a book on career coaching for kids, it would be EXACTLY like this. The authors have done a wonderful job in creating a book that is not only useful, but thought provoking for parents. It had me sold when they talked about following the lead of the child and feeding their interests. It seems simple enough, but when parents (naturally) view their children as extensions of themselves, it poses a significant challenge for many. With well-written wisdom that will benefit parents with kids of all ages, I highly recommend this book. The price here on Amazon practically makes it free. Get it today!
