Hal & Melanie at the Schoolhouse Expo Talking to Teens & Their Families
by Melanie | August 20th, 2010
UPDATE: Congratulations to Mandy Gillespie who won volumes 1 and 2 of our new Hero Tales series and apheartsong who won a free ticket to the Schoolhouse Expo!
Psychologists Joseph and Claudia Allen say that low expectations have undermined the transition from childhood to adulthood, and twenty-somethings are still trying to figure out what their parents knew as teenagers. The age of marriage is rising, the number of young men living in their parents’ basement is climbing, and America is raising a generation that’s really good at Facebook and Halo 3, but doesn’t know where to begin when it’s time to grow up.
Is 25 the new 15? We say NO — and we don’t have to play that game!
Hal and Melanie Young will be speaking on “Doing Real Things, for Teens and Their Families,” during The Old Schoolhouse Expo, October 4-8. Young men and women will hear how they can stop just marking time and start making a mark on the world. Parents will be inspired and equipped to help their children make the transition to adulthood more easily.
To help promote this online event, we’ll be on The Old Schoolhouse’s Facebook page this afternoon from 4:00 Eastern for about 15 minutes, answering your questions live!
