Parent Advice

Let your child pick the course that interests them, not the course that interests you. This is on opportunity to explore subjects and topics they may not otherwise be exposed to in school so if three weeks of psychology or literature is their jam, let them explore it fully. They will be happier in a course they chose. –Amy K., TIP Parent, South Carolina
