Helping your tween choose a college or career path is not a game of chance. Your tween may view the world as a place of countless possibilities, full of new places to discover and new people to meet. This can be exciting . . . and scary! Whether they have talked with you or not, they are probably beginning to think about and maybe explore future job and career options.
