More on Mel Levine

I am still reading Ready or Not, Here Life Comes by Mel Levine. Now, what action to take??

"These kids have no idea how to assess their strengths and weaknesses, how to follow their passion and how to communicate and work with others and how to survive on the bottom rung," he writes.

And he blames parents and teachers, who are so busy with college prep that they ignore life prep.

It isn't just that our children leave the nest without learning how to balance a checkbook, make a decent meal or do their own laundry, although there is certainly plenty of that.
"They have never worked on finding a good fit between their minds and their jobs," Levine writes.
