What Do You Expect? Helping Teenage TCKs Plan for the Future
It is common for TCKs to have expectations about what their future will look like due to the extraordinary experiences they’ve had as a child. However, many TCKs do not know what pieces need to fall into place to reach goals they may have for their lives. In this 90-minute workshop we will discuss the ways they can begin preparing themselves mentally, educationally, socially, and financially for a healthy outlook of adulthood and future that they can look forward to.
Why should I take this course?
This workshop is aimed for you. Through this workshop, you'll be able to recognize the Key Challenge areas for TCKs and practical skills for helping them navigate those challenges to promote lifelong thriving.
Equipping you with the Key Challenges of TCKs and how to practically address them, this workshop will model how to provide parents with this foundational education to set their children up for success abroad.
While this workshop is not aimed at adult TCKs, many adult TCKs have valued this content as it names many of the issues they wrestled with in adulthood and helps them notice how their parents did support them and other ways that they needed additional support. This can be a validating, normalizing, and encouraging workshop for Adult TCKs.
