As a parent you want your young adult to start a graduate career that they enjoy, that uses their skills, that pays them fairly and that they can progress in.
Up until now your young adults have known where they were going; they've followed an educational path that was laid out for them.
Now there are many paths open to them. This life stage can lead to a lot of development in their idea of who they are, where they exist in the world, and what their purpose is. They are likely to feel stressed and overwhelmed at times.
You want to support them and be there for them but equally you want them to make their own decisions. It's their future, not yours.
You might be lacking the knowledge to share with them. Or even if you have the knowledge they may not want to listen.
Getting some external support for your young adult will give you peace of mind. And help your young adult share their thoughts and emotions, get clarity, make plans and see progress more quickly and with less stress than if they struggle on alone.
