Work, Struggle, Leisure, Play Chart

The downloadable resource for this stage offers more than fifty ways to get started thinking about a full life—and a free life. Use this resource as a reference for the kind of work a child needs to learn how to do—to live life as a young adult.  The experiences in the column labeled “struggle” are offered because they may actually be real struggles for one or more of your children.
