Lets do This

Most of us are probably familiar with the classic Dr. Seuss book Oh, the Places You’ll Go, right?  It's full of inspiring quotes and is written almost like a road map for important life lessons (risk-taking, success, resiliency, decision making and much more.)

As a caring adult, think of the ways that you encourage young people and help them navigate the complexities of life.  Do you expose them to new ideas, experiences and places? Do you introduce them to people who can help them grow? Do you help them work through barriers that could stop them from achieving their goals?  These are all ways that you help kids see their potential and expand their opportunities.

Stay Inspired

Check out this article for 15 life lessons from Dr. Seuss’ Oh, the Places You’ll Go. As we work with young people and help to prepare them for their next chapter -- be it middle school, high school, college or the workforce -- let’s encourage them to “Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s a Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed). Kid, you’ll move mountains.”
