A survey of 1,000 parents identified 50 skills that parents are afraid their kids won’t have when they’re older. Here are the top ten . . .
1. How to deal with stress. 29% said they’re worried their kids won’t have the emotional skills to deal with tough situations.
2. How to budget.
3. How to deal with a broken heart. A fifth of parents said they’re concerned.
4. How to save money.
5. How to pay bills.
6. How to drive a car.
7. Dealing with a mortgage.
8. How to look after yourself on a night out.
9. How to change a tire.
10. How to be independent. Or in other words . . . will they EVER move out?
Another important note: The survey found the #1 way kids learn life skills is through their PARENTS. So don’t rely on their teachers for all this stuff. And 70% of parents said financial skills are the most important things kids need to learn.
