Yet another thing that we need to discuss when talking about not destroying our children, or leaving them in a bad situation, is teaching them basic life skills. There are certain things that, there really is not much of an excuse for not teaching your children, in terms of not preparing them to with before facing adulthood. Without these skills, we put them in a situation where their knowledge and skill set are deficient, when trying to be an adult or parent. They are, as the name suggests, things that are needed to live a halfway sustainable lifestyle. After realizing this, why would one not try to make it their objective to make sure that these things are taught to their children?
From these skills are;
- Time Management
- Washing Clothes, Ironing, etc
- Basic Food Preparation
- Creating A Budget
- Personal Hygiene
- Basic Networking
- Making and Keeping A Schedule
- Being Open Minded
- Accepting Constructive Criticism
These, and other skill sets are a must that we need to instill in our children before it is too late. We should do our best to make sure that we have covered these issues with them before they leave our homes. This will not only help them tremendously, but also help the society at large that they move into once leaving our homes.
