Okay, let’s face it. Our kids won’t know what they don’t know until the time comes upon them and they are struggling to be able to balance a check book or boil water for macaroni and cheese. It’s our jobs as parents to not only make sure our children are well rounded individuals who excel in sports and get fantastic grades, but to prepare them for when they are no longer in your nest. It is our job, from the time they are little until they leave the nest, to teach them the important things they need to survive in the world outside our walls. Then, with the love we give them, they will have the drive and motivation to thrive once they leave the nest. Here are a few things that you can do that parents should be teaching their children in preparation for adulthood.
Point of all of this, what you teach your children throughout their young ages will positively or negatively affect them. Boundaries are good, teasing is bad and what you say can hurt other people are life lessons we should all be teaching our children. Money and looks can only bring you so far before consequences set in and parents never stop being parent even when their children leave the home. It’s a lifelong job and kids should want to come to parents for advice even if they do not always take the advice that is given. It’s the job of a parent to prepare their children the best they know how, and if parents are unsure how to handle situations, seek the advice of someone else (i.e. doctors, nurses, teachers, social workers, counselors, cops) who are there, meant to help others.
