Most people, after High School are out on their own. A few people might win scholarships—either through sports or good grades.
These people are very few. People are pushed out into a hard, cold—heartless world—real fast.
For years, they have dreamed of being out own their own. Maybe not. They might have been scared to go out into the wide world.
No matter what they feel about life after High School—that is it.
They are considered grown. Yet, many times they are not even properly prepared to deal with the world mentally, spiritually, financially, skill wise, trade wise, technical wise, know how wise—or any other way.
How many grown people have spent time talking to the young people of the real world? How much true talk—no matter how startling it might be—has transpired between the old and the young?
Young people need to be taught skills, trades, crafts, and many other things. They should be talked to about job situations they might be in once they get out on their own. How will certain situations be handled at work? How will they deal with bosses that might be hard to get along with? What strategies will they use to get around obstacles at work?
Do the young people know how to make a resume? Do they know how to conduct themselves in an interview?
Reality talks from older people prepares the youth for adulthood.
