Ok I’m sure some of you are irritated with the title, I’m sorry, just trying to get your attention. In this episode I will give you some of the skills I believe children should be taught before they are a teenager. So many kids live behind the technology of the time, not that children shouldn’t be well versed in the electronic age. The point is, as good a tool as YouTube and the many free educational tools there are out there, there are many very important life skills that can’t be taught through these electronic marvels. It is especially important to learn these before you need them in a time when you can’t just find a YouTube video. Here is a warning for this episode, just because I lay down this list of skills, you as the parent or guardian of your child should not expect or try to teach them a skill that you personally don’t feel that they are mature enough to learn or perform by themselves. If your child is not mature enough, you should look into finding another skill that builds maturity and responsibility before you try. I also make the point that a lot of these items may just sound like average chores or labor for your child… it is good for children to learn a work ethic at a young age because as a former employer myself, the majority of the youth have NO work ethic.
