Is there anything you wish would be taught to your teens before graduation? I think stress management needs a bigger focus in today's schools.

I definitely agree that stress management needs a bigger focus and also life skills (aka what it really means to work, retirement, benefits etc.) is another big category that does not receive a lot of attention. In relation to stress management some of the teachers have started helping students get ahead of the game by learning from Highschool Beestar that gives them a head start on preparing for the SATs. The students seem to respond very well to it since it reduces the stress during junior and senior year and the focus can then be shifted to applying for colleges vs going to cram sessions to learn tricks for taking the SAT. I think that stress management is definitely also related to how we as parents/teachers can help students feel more prepared (which in relation reduces stress). Highschool Beestar does a great job on keeping students learning SAT skills through weekly questions, a great resource to utilize!
