Applying to college is an overwhelming, challenging, and stressful time. At this point in their lives, teens are starting to pull away from their parents, and yet they almost need more help than ever. MindLaunch has a cadre of experts who have fashioned a program that is as helpful for parents as it is for students. The mechanics of applying to college consist of constructing a test prep plan, understanding the applications, and generating a useful list of schools. Our guidance continues with offering strategies for this process and creating the “shining star” that all students should be.
Teenagers need their parents to be parents and help them to mature into responsible adults. MindLaunch provides the alter-ego to the parent: let us do the nagging and be the product managers for this process. We know how to help your teenager write a stellar application essay; we know when to encourage and how to get the most from them; we know when to be positive and when to be realistic. We at MindLaunch understand this age because we work with teenagers day in and day out. We suggest that parents contact us as early as 7th grade, although students start working with us at every grade and stage of the process.
