Begin providing your child with that “back pack” of skills early in life.
Jazz and I recently were able to review the book Resumes for Children by Donna Kristine Manley.
When I first heard this title I was not sure what to think. When I hear the word resume I immediately think of work or job. The first question I asked myself is why would Jazz need a resume? She has never had job.
I wish we would have read this book sooner. When Jazz(14) was in the 8th grade last year we had to start searching for acceptable high schools for her to attend. My husband and I had no idea how much work it was to get her into a good one. There were applications to fill out and tests to take. There was even an interview process for both parents and child. One common requirement that all the schools had were recommendations and a list of activities Jazz participated in. Basically we had to fill out forms with all this information more than a few times. It would have been a whole lot easier if she had a resume and it would have made her stand out more.
