It can be easy to forget to show your children and teenagers some basic skills. Here are a couple of important ones that will be of great benefit if they learn while they’re young.
Basic Cooking Skills
This is not to say they need to be the next top chef, but just having some basic skills in the kitchen will be a lifesaver. So many teenagers don’t know how to boil an egg, or cook pasta. Ensuring they have enough basic skills to put together a couple of meals will mean they can always feed themselves in the future.
Painting a Room
Next time you need to update a room in your home, get your teenager involved. Learning the little rules and guidance for painting walls and ceilings will be of great help. Trying to do this in the future with no previous experience is incredibly daunting, and this is a really useful skill to have.
Lighting a Fire
There are so many different contexts in which knowing how to light and keep a fire is super important. This is a skill that a lot of people may think is easy, but without knowing simple tricks and tips this can be really challenging.
