We are reaching out to students who have taken a gap year to ask them for their advice, guidance, stories, and lessons learned from their intentional gap years they choose to take. There are gap year programs available that provide a structured gap year for learning, volunteering, and service opportunities.
Parenting is not easy and given the last five months, we have all learned how to live, learn, and work with our kids some of whom have not lived in our house for a while.
