How to Prevent “Failure to Launch” Syndrome

Failure to Launch Syndrome isn't actually a syndrome, but every parent has a degree of fear that their kid will "fail to launch". The trouble is, no one is talking about how to prevent it! In this episode, Steve Markel (Founder of Families of Character), shares how he launched from the nest in his teens, ready to take on the world.  Find out how you, too, can prepare your kids to launch from the nest with the life skills they need to THRIVE.
