In his most recent book Poke The Box, Seth Godin has a simple message for Generation Z: GO! The expectations of conformity, compliance and acceptance no longer ensure success for the next generation in school or the workplace.
If your child has a passion, if your child wants to try something new, if your child has an extraordinary idea, then empower, support and embrace his or her interests. What will make members of Generation Z great is not how well they fit in tomorrow, but how well they stand out today.
When looking for an after-school activity for your child, find an extracurricular program that encourages students to “Poke the Box.” Creating, initiating and innovating will develop their confidence and encourage them to GO! In the words of Seth Godin: Start Now.
