Photoshop for Beginners by Daniel Walter Scott - Badge Exercise

Apart from the exercise. I’m having trouble with the paths showing up, I’m using cs6 and after every adjustment, I make with the move with the move tool, I have to keep reselecting the layer with the path in order to see the outline of the path to get my fonts inside; it’s rather annoying. Is there a way to fix it? I don’t see the constant blue anchor points either.

Also during the Mother’s Day Sale, every time, I tried moving the words, the background image layer kept getting selected as well.
