PREPARING YOUR KIDS FOR THE REAL WORLD

Are you having your children trained in the real world? It is not the worst thing in the world to have your children live longer at home. But it’s crucial for them to learn basic life skills along the way, so they can cook their own dinner and wash their own laundry whether they live with you or on their own. Experts say how we raise our children, as they age from their infant phase and mature into adulthood, will make or break their ability to run their own lives. Train your children to be grown-ups in a realistic and emotional way and the school system and the parents will need to collaborate to raise trained students together.

Schools should be responsible for instructing children to be familiar with the world around them, even when the parents slack off. A joint effort between parent and educator should be to train the next generation of children to be confident and prepared for what’s to come. Many educators may be worried that teaching lessons around more real-world subjects will take time away from conventional topics. If you had the ability to build a school from the ground up, how could its classes vary from current school classes? If I had to design my own school, students’ classes would be focused on two main components: what students are interested in, and what students will need after graduation for their lives. Sometimes there are classes we don’t really like but need to take as they teach things that are needed in the real world out there or provide a better basis for the rest of the academic career of a child. Nonetheless, it’s known that they are more likely to learn the material when a kid likes the lesson. If there is a particular subject or style of teaching that a student likes, that’s the knowledge to act on.

Here are 13 guidance posts to track your children through their lives:

1. Be self-confident. Don’t let yourself get overly dependent on others. This can’t be done to you; you have to do it.

2. Make the right choices, and take responsibility for your actions. The sum of the choices that you make decides your future.

3. Face the facts. That’s not packed with rainbows every day. Be prepared with the poor to embrace the nice-even roses have thorns.

4. Establish standards that are rational. You’re not getting what you want; you are getting what you deserve.

5. Get your hands dirty. You start from the bottom and stay there until you prove you can handle more.

6. Know one, or two. Allow your mentor to instruct you on an operation, but never to participate. This will instill confidence and make sure there is learning.

7. Taking this one easy. Don’t bite off more than you can initially chew. Building confidence and momentum by making small wins.

8. Don’t blame anyone-learn. Make mistakes when the impacts are small. This way, when it matters most, you can know exactly how to handle the stuff.

9. Don’t be yourself boy. Show off some grit when faced with obstacles. Determination is the development of habit; so is the leaving.

10.Hard work. You are expected to pull your own weight, and not weigh the team down.

11. Invest in themselves. Education is important, and knowledge. Everything you know makes you more important, and the rewards will stay with you throughout life.

12. Take “no” as a response. Those who don’t participate in your every whim teach you “how to fish.” They give you the gift of faith, courage, and self-reliance.

13. Work hard; work smart. Nothing is done without hard work, commitment and dedication. Becoming a success instantly takes several years.
