Teens have to be reached at an early age because it’ll give them a chance to evaluate and manage the knowledge that has been given to them, process it, and decide if it fits into the plan they have for their life. High school students feel a sense of adulthood in school, since high school has the option of different classes, and the variety of those classes can have a student wonder how college life will be for them. The high school experience, and the pondering that comes with it, begins this responsibility.
Though, when a student enters high school, the first thing that has to be done is the actual work!
This is a step to mature adulthood, and making teens at the high school level aware of the work required to reach their ambitions is a starting point, not a goal line. Since they are mature enough to understand the process and young enough to begin the process of everything becoming a habit, hard work instilled now will be invaluable later on in college and beyond.
When teens are reached early, in an engaging, intellectual way in high school, then they’ll be prepared as they begin their journey to more than just work later in life.
