Share those practical life skills

“By the time my kids return to school, they will know how to prepare more complex meals, jump-start a dead battery, pay bills, and sew buttons back on their clothes.” - A Love and Logic Dad
 
Many families are experiencing a time with kids who are home from school for extended periods. There are, of course, positives and negatives to this.
 
Some good news—just because conventional school isn’t happening, it doesn’t mean that learning must stop. We have heard from some of our wonderful Love and Logic parents that they are having great results using this time to teach some practical life skills. What a great time for kids to get hands-on learning of tasks like cooking, changing a tire, doing laundry, banking, sewing, creating a resume, or playing a musical instrument!
 
What would happen if more young people emerged from this time feeling more capable and less dependent on adults? How many more kids could emerge from this time with great new skills that will serve them throughout life?
 
How might we identify good skills to work on during this time? Some parents take a look at things they WISH their kids knew how to do for themselves, depending on their kids’ age and developmental level. They also look at tasks that might benefit the family or community while considering each kid’s individual strengths and interests. One other guide to finding some good candidates for teaching skills—situations that kids might get into where skills are needed such as changing a flat tire or jump-starting a dead battery.
 
You know how to do all kinds of really cool stuff. Hopefully, you will get a chance during this time to share some of these practical life skills with the upcoming generation. Perhaps, in return, kids will teach the adults some new things as well.
 
We certainly don’t mean to minimize the difficulty of this time for many people. However, we do believe in turning adversity to advantage. It is our sincere hope that you and the ones you love will be able to use this time to connect and to teach each other. Like generations before us, we may look back on these difficult days as cherished times of togetherness, resilience, and growth.
