Parenting Our Future

Aug 31, 2021

We all want the best for our kids and having a great education is part of that. How often have you thought about your chid’s education after high school? If you want them to get into a good college, when should you start thinking about it?

Thankfully, we have people like Dr. Shirag Shemmassian, who helps guide parents and their kids through the process of standing out from the masses in their college applications.

In this episode we talk about:
When to start the process
What do kids really need in order to stand out
How parents can get in the way
What differentiates the top 10 – 20 schools from others
What to do about rejection
