Watch this parenting presentation by Educator Myrna Lapres to discover some simple, fun activities that you can introduce to your children to develop essential life skills and be more engaged with each other in the process.
We all want what is best for our children. It is clear that they need information – facts, figures, concepts, insights, and understanding. But for them to not only survive in today’s complex, fast-moving world but also thrive, we also need to teach them life skills. These life skills – focus, self-control, perspective taking, communicating, making connections and more – have three essential points:
- They can be practiced during everyday activities with little cost.
- They are great for the whole family, parents, and children of all ages.
- It is never too late to start.
