You have been waiting for a long time for your teen to graduate and now the day is fast approaching. You need to be prepared for the ceremony and also the events that would follow the ceremony. This is necessary so that you do not end up running from one place to another making the last minute arrangements.
Place orders for everything that you would be requiring on the day. Do not wait for the last few days to place the order. The arrangements should begin as soon as your teen enters the senior year.
Be aware of any papers, school rings, class trips or the school year book information that might be required. Keep abreast by being in touch you’re your teen. When you get the papers, arrange them in a proper manner to avoid last minute hassles.
Assist your teen in getting over the senior year and look forward to the forthcoming opportunities. It will not help if your teen has yet to make plans for his college when all his peers have already decided on the college or the path they want to follow. Talk to your teen and be aware of his aspirations for his future. It could be anything from joining the military or going to the college.
As soon as your teen tells you about the number of people allowed to the graduation, determine who would be going to the graduation event. Depending upon where the school is hosting the event, the number of people allowed could be as small as 2 for each student. Any discussions to be had regarding the people accompanying the teen should be held before the due date.
Prepare for the events happening after the graduation and keep your schedule flexible. Confirm with your teen, if he or she is planning for a party with friends so as to avoid last minute heartaches. Help the teen with the party, if he is having one.
Keep these points in mind and you will definitely enjoy the day that you and your family have been looking forward to for a long time. Relax, enjoy and have great fun.
