Parents: Is Your Daughter Ready for College?
Life Skills Crash Course
January 25, 2020
I know that as a parent and caretaker, you have done everything in your power to prepare your daughter for “the real world.” But still, you can’t shake the little nagging feeling that you’re missing something.
Do you worry that your daughter isn’t *quite* ready to move out? Do you fear that daily challenges will result in panicked calls?
Of course you’re nervous! It’s normal to be nervous; it’s a huge step in both of your lives! The truth is, your daughter is nervous too.
It’s natural for parents and daughters to be nervous when it comes to moving out, but that doesn’t mean that your teen can’t be extra-prepared and completely confident. That is where MissHeard Media comes in!
I am thrilled to host LIFE SKILLS CRASH COURSE at Joe’s Movement Emporium on JANUARY 25, 2020! This all-day event is perfect for young women who are getting ready to move out of the house and into their own space for the first time.
Your daughter will learn and practice life skills that will help her prepare for campus living! After the event, she’ll feel more confident and prepared to handle whatever comes her way, on campus and off, such as:
• Making a great first impression in a professional or personal setting
• Public speaking
• Being assertive without being aggressive
• Active listening, including listening to & responding to other viewpoints
• Managing stress & high-pressure situations
• Repairing clothes in a pinch
• Creating & sticking to a budget
• Filing taxes
• Writing & sending professional correspondence
• and more!
It’s literally a one-day crash course in “Adulting” basics. All participants will leave with increased confidence, new skills, and a take home booklet.
She’ll learn these skills by:
- Creating a space where she feels comfortable to share
- Taking teeny, tiny risks by being creative
- Practicing a new skill through hands-on activities
- Reflecting on what she learned through group discussion
- Celebrating her new skills!
On January 25, Teen Girl Whisperer and MissHeard Media founder Lindsey Turnbull will teach college-bound teen girls to navigate living away from home for the first time by re-affirming and practicing what you’ve already taught them at home!
This event includes lunch, snacks, small group activities, and take-home extras, so space is extremely limited. Are you ready to give your daughter a boost as she steps into the real world?
