Study: My Understanding of Education
The Importance of Teaching Life Skills to Teens It has been proven by educational statistics that teens have still a lot to learn even though they often give the impression that they know it all. Teens are not really taught life skills in school, and you will find that most homes or parents don’t teach these lessons at home, either. Schools are able to give out children knowledge of different subject matters which they can excel in, but somehow this knowledge is not sufficient to survive in this life, they don’t have skills to realize not to rely on others for their future, but figure out for themselves what they want out of life and teach their own selves how to reach the goal. Some say that this kind of children are street smart. If children learn life skills, they would not have a difficult time succeeding in life. Teens need to learn the cost of money. What this means is first its value, for often parents are the ones who provide every whim that their teen requests but do not teach what money means, how hard it is to earn it, the value of saving for what you need or how to wait for what you want. Still under cost of money, what comes next is the cost it takes to carry out the task. Teens need to learn what taxes mean, how to save, how to balance their accounts and how to budget. What teens of today lack is the skill of earning money, saving money, giving money, and spending money wisely. These basic skills concerning money are not being taught in our educations institutions these days. Why is it that young students who have a side job are look upon with distaste as if something was completely wrong about it? This shows a lack of understanding about money and working for it.
Getting Creative With Education Advice
Teens need to learn to cook, clean, and do laundry. These skills will be valuable no matter where a teen lives, works, or goes to school. When teens don’t have these skills, the love of the tasks and the responsibility that it carried, the will tend to spend most of their money buying cooked food contained in easy to throw packages and they will not be wise in spending and saving their money.
What No One Knows About Tips
It is important for our teens to at least know how to mend tears or put a new button or fix a hole in a seam. Home Economics, the subject that is supposed to teach teens these skills, have been taken out from most school curriculum. Polite conversation is seriously missing in our teen’s speech nowadays. It is not old-fashioned to expect a teenager to say hello and thank you when speaking with parents or adults. It actually is “respect” which is not anymore a common commodity to teens these days.
