I have been writing blogs for 2 ½ years. I started in October, 2014 and have consistently written 1-2 blog posts a month. If you are a long-time subscriber to my newsletter you might remember one or two of the posts I have listed today. However, if you have just joined me at Wildewood Learning you will want to take a look at some of my past writings. Here are six post that I have written over the last 2 ½  years that have helped my readers with post high school planning, motivation and parenting.

However, there is nothing like having someone assist you in seeing hope for the future.  Please contact me to set up a time where we can “Explore Your Teen’s Future”.
