There are a lot of unknowns but parents can help their children prepare to be work-ready

As a parent, you may feel like there are many unknowns but you can help your child prepare for the future by helping them develop a growth mindset and skills that are highly valued in the future of work.

It's important for parents to help their children develop a growth mindset because this will help them be more prepared for what comes next.

This means that every child needs to develop their own learning mindset and become lifelong learners who are willing and able to learn new things throughout their lives

Learning how to learn is a skill that every child should develop. It’s important for children to be able to not just understand, but also apply what they are learning in their lives. This means that every child needs to develop their own learning mindset and become lifelong learners who are willing and able to learn new things throughout their lives.

It’s also important for parents and teachers alike to teach students how they can improve themselves by asking questions of themselves, others and the world around them – this will help them think more critically which will lead them on a path towards success both personally as well as professionally!




Be curious, be creative, be critical, be collaborative, and be caring. These skills will be highly valued in the future of work.

Every child deserves the opportunity for an education that equips them for an increasingly automated, uncertain and technology-driven world.

As the world changes, so must our education system. Every child deserves an opportunity for an education that equips them for an increasingly automated, uncertain and technology-driven world.

In this era of change, parents need to think about upskilling themselves to help their teenagers secure jobs in the future




Technology offers us a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make education more personalized, student centred and relevant to the fast changing world we live in.

Technology offers us a once in a generation opportunity to make education more personalized, student centred and relevant to the fast changing world we live in.

The internet has changed the way we learn and teach. It's allowing teachers to reach students in ways that were previously unimaginable - even at my school where technology was never used until recently. Technology is also changing how we work, as well as how we get paid for our work (and even how we're evaluated).

We need enterprising teenagers who have a growth mindset and believe they can succeed in an interconnected world!

In order to be successful, it is important that you have a growth mindset. A growth mindset means that you believe your skills and abilities can improve over time. When people with this attitude are given challenges, they tend to rise up to them naturally and with confidence, rather than fearing failure or putting up barriers because of past experiences. They are also willing to take risks in order for them to succeed despite their fears of failure or other challenges along the way. This is why we need enterprising teenagers who have a growth mindset and believe they can succeed in an interconnected world!




Parents need to think about upskilling themselves to help their teenagers secure jobs in the future.

The first step in helping your teenager achieve his or her goals is to empower them with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed. You can do this by helping them upskill themselves, which will equip them with the right tools for the future.

Here are some tips on how parents can help their children:

  • Understand what's happening in the world of work today, and make sure your child has access to information that enables him or her to stay ahead of tech changes or adapt quickly if necessary (for instance, by learning coding). If possible, find out what kind of jobs are available locally that are relevant for their needs—and consider enrolling them in high school classes related specifically towards those fields so they have an edge when it comes time for college admissions decisions!


Conclusion

We need enterprising teenagers who have a growth mindset and believe they can succeed in an interconnected world! We are talking about your children’s future. You may be surprised at how much you can prepare them for this new world by giving them access to technology, information and opportunities for learning.
