As parents, we all agree that education is important. We know what our children need to learn in school and every week we set time aside for our kids to master various subjects. Mathematics? Check. Reading? Check. History? Check.
But what about life skills? Skills like money management, conflict resolution, communication, or homemaking. Are you being as intentional about teaching these to your children?
Imagine your child as an adult, living on their own. Do they have the skills they will need to rent an apartment, buy a car, manage their finances, and/or get a job?
It is crucial that we, as parents, spend time teaching our kids the skills they are going need to live on their own, as successful adults, able to contribute to society.
Over the next 5 days, we’re going to be sharing some of the life skills we’ve been working on in our homes.
- Teaching Kids Life Skills: Thank You Notes
- Teaching Kids Life Skills: Goal Setting
- Teaching Kids Life Skills: Money Management
- Teaching Kids Life Skills: Managing Schedules
- Teaching Kids Life Skills: Food Shopping
As you know, this is just a handful of the skills our kids will need as they move into adulthood.
Over the next year, one of our goals here at Education Possible is to share more ideas like these to help you teach important life skills to your kids.
