Happy New Year Everyone
Well it the last day of the New Year and we are thinking about what we can do to get the word out about postive parenting. One of the things that came to my mind was High school programs we had back in the day.
How many of you parents remember taking Home Economics, Wood shop, Automotive classes and clerical skills?
I was thinking that a LIFE SKILLS program for pre-teens and Teens would be benefincal to the schools.
Teaching children about money management, parenting, job searching would help young students learn what they are going to have to be prepared for in life.
I remember my mom having us pay the Phone bill, Con Edison and looking in the super market cirrculars for sales on can vegetables.
All of those things taught me how to deal with them when I become old enough to have my
own family and what to do.
I hear alot of parents say in my workshops what they give their children but what are you
really teaching them about the game of life?
So the next time you sit down to pay your mountain of bills invite you children along for the
ride and start a open dialogue about the game called LIFE.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I look forward to hearing from you on this topic.
