Dear Mattsons

July 25, 2022

Ep. 33 : How do I help my high school child plan for the future without putting too much stress on them?

God created your child and knows the plans he has for them. When we get our perspective as parents in check it helps lead our children in peace. It is important to remind our children to work hard and do their best, but who they are as a person is separate from what they do. We will remind you to frame this conversation as an adventure, remember that there are a lot of options besides college, and that ultimately we can’t mess up God’s plan.
