FAITH PATH STEP: Launch
• Recommended focus: Ages 17+ (during the Senior year in High School)
• Coach your young adult to move responsibly and proactively toward college and/or career and adult independence.
Watch the Video
Please watch the short video where you will hear from both experts and ordinary families as they describe the importance of proactively launching your teen into independence and adulthood and share practical suggestions from their experiences.
Get The Kit
To help you get started, this kit includes a guide that offers practical tips and what we consider to be some of the best resources to help you release your teen to embrace independence and adulthood.
To help make this process easier, we’ve provided a Before You Leave discussion guide and a Sample Blessing Ideas card. Use these tools to create meaningful moments with your emerging adult before he or she graduates from high school or leaves home. There is also The Toughest Test in College video that we encourage you to watch together with your teen, discuss the issues it raises, and strategize togher how your son or daughter might address them.
