I thought about this and I went to social media to see what kind of skills my kids needed in order to be able to live out from under my roof.
Parents need to teach life skills to kids like how to cook, clean, hammer, saw and how to balance a checkbook. This is my quick list of what I am training my kids to be able to do.
Laundry is a never-ending chore that always has to be done. We started with teaching them how to use the washer and dryer. Then we slowly started to teach them how to fold laundry, match socks and hang them up.
Washing a bathroom is super gross when you have boys. So when I got sick of washing urine off the floor in the bathroom, that is when I taught my kids how to clean a bathroom.
My goal is for them to be able to leave for college knowing how to cook 5 different meals without burning them.
I have a huge phobia of knives due to an accident I had as a child using a knife. It left me with 15 stitches in my hand. So I have been teaching my kids slowly how to use a knife.
