This article, entitled "Life Skills Teenagers Need to Be Independent" comes from Cathy at bountifulplate.
We were all teenagers once. Didn’t it seem at the time that we knew it all??? If you are a parent raising a teen now, there are life skills that they will need as they transition into adulthood.
Whether they go to college or straight into the workforce after high school graduation, there are important life skills all teenagers need to be independent. If your teen has special needs , then some of these skills will need to be adapted. There are also “apps” that teens (of all abilities) can download onto an iPad, iPod, computer or their cell phones, to aid them in this journey into adulthood. Many are a nominal cost or are free.
You may encounter some resistance or hesitation from your teen as you teach them these life skills, but it will make their transition into adulthood that much easier (and smoother) – and who knows? They may actually thank you one day!
