Majors lift spirits for undecided teens

Families that don't sweat the idea of identifying a college major for their college bound teen are missing out on a little known phenomenon. Teens who know what they want to study feel less stressed because they have fewer mysteries about college. Knowing field of study also helps guide college choice. Not knowing what you will do adds anxiety to your life. Knowing what you are trying to do gives you peace. This is as true for teens as it is adults.
 
Parents often do not bother with curriculum identification often because educators and other parents tell them that it is too early to do so...that it is not possible yet.  They are wrong. This is an expensive myth that can cause later transfers to occur because your teen can end up at a college that does not even offer what they want to study.
 
There is nothing magic about curriculum choice. It is a process that involves study, counseling, assessment and evaluation. Accurate curriculum choice does not just happen. Smart parents make sure their teen is on the right track. Curriculums that just happen can be wrong. Wrong curriculums lead in the opposite direction of college and career success.
