Graduation Day is the culmination of lots of hard work (some more than others)!
Regardless of the time it took to reach graduation, your loved one has earned that diploma! It is a day for loved ones to celebrate the importance of education and moving on to the next step in life.
Family support goes a long way here. Sharing your sense of pride and accomplishment shows the graduate those values that your family deems important. No matter where the transition takes him, mental preparation will give him or her the longest-lasting value.
As your young relatives set out to take on the world, encourage them with inspirational quotes or a small gift instead of cash. For young people, motivation goes much further than cash!
