“There are two gifts we should give our children. One is roots, and the other is wings.” Johann Wolfgang van Goethe

We all know how it goes. The school sends out newsletters and hosts evenings aimed to enlighten parents on the procedures happening at school. But you never get them. Unfortunately even the most diligent of kids let these slide by you and you are left completely oblivious(sometimes blissfully) to the events being hosted by the school. You find the newsletters crumpled up at the bottom of your child’s bag at the end of the term and they are now completely useless to you.

Unless your child tells you about these events and the information in the newsletters, you’ll never know what’s going on. We’ve got your back though. For your luxury we’ve put together a little package to help shed some light on some of the decisions and trials you and your child need to make at school in preparation for university or even to figure out what to do after school. We also added some extra information that no one ever tells you about, like when to let your child make decisions for themselves, and you end up learning the hard way.
