As a mom to two wonderful young adults, I wish that there was a handbook to help you navigate the crazy world of parenting. Even though my kids are no longer kids, I am still their parent. Having young adults has its fair share of issues, as it does when raising children. I wish I knew then what I knew now. Maybe parenting my kids would not have been so challenging at times.
I am fortunate that my kids were good kids growing up. They did not get into trouble, and they did well in school. Even when our daughter did things she knew she should not (example, trying some beer at a party), she always told me right away. She was brutally honest about things, which I commend her on. She did not hide things from us.
As a parent, and someone who works with children, I am always more than happy to share valuable resources when I come upon them. I might not be a parent to children anymore, but that does not mean I cannot help others with children. In the past I have referred people to literacy programs, wellness programs, and affordable daycare.
If you are a parent, or know a parent, I would like to present to you another great resource I learned about. It’s the Rebecca Everlene Trust Company.
The Rebecca Everlene Trust Company is a global nonprofit organization that provides virtual sitter and educational opportunities to families with children through the Intellectual Practice Learning and Surviving College Financially programs. It offers students the ability to receive subject specific coaching, virtually, from “Kid Watchers” who are passionate about kids, some of which are high schoolers, professional counselors, and teachers.
I love the idea of subject specific coaching. I wish I knew about that when our son was struggling with his Italian class (unlike our daughter, my son never seemed to “grasp” the language). I am also horrible at math and I cannot understand the common core math at all. I wish I knew about Rebecca Everlene Trust Company back when my kids were still in school. Math help would have been greatly appreciated.
The Rebecca Everlene Trust Company has also recently expanded its services to include the advancement of financial literacy through the People Helping People program and provides assistance to families struggling with infertility through Smitten & Hitch Coparenting.
Here is some more interesting information about the Rebecca Everlene Trust Company;
Founded in September of 2012, these programs evolved from the realization of an overwhelming need to promote the advancement of inventions and publications among young people, who are talented and driven enough to embrace the “11” concept.
The Each Discovery Involves Eleven concept is based on the educational premise that each invention or discovery is the result of acknowledging eleven core ethical principles of effective character education. Because each advancement towards a possibility is subconsciously fueled by the desire for social change, it is our belief that students of this mindset and caliber should not be limited in pursuing their dreams. In recognition of these beliefs, students who are enrolled in Intellectual Practice Learning will also have an opportunity to receive assistance in pursuing their goals of becoming published authors, patented inventors, and young entrepreneurs.
Funding for these initiatives will come from donations made to the Rebecca Everlene Trust Company, the sale and marketing of successful student projects, and subsidized program fees for students who enroll in Intellectual Practice Learning.
Wow! They certainly cover a lot of areas.
It is great that such organizations exist to help parents, and students, out when in need.
