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.
Life by design offers us many opportunities to learn how to struggle well in truth. It’s helpful to see these experiences listed with the work and leisure and play—because it helps us begin to expect struggles as part of a natural life—instead of be surprised by struggle, and respond in fear or shame.
