Middle school is a tough age, as noted by Mark Twain:
"When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years."
Project Imagine!® brings parents and middle school aged children together in a very special way, learning and growing together as they explore career choices.
This benefits the child-parent relationship by demonstrating the parent can be a continuous learner, and the child can see herself in an interesting career.
The child gains by having a greater sense of self-esteem, especially with the parent acting as their child’s advocate by identifying contacts using the concept of six degrees of separation.
