teaching life skills to kids

In the busy life of homeschooling it’s easy to forget basic skills that every person needs. We’re so busy teaching history, science, math, and grammar that it’s easy for other things to go unnoticed. But there are plenty of skills that kids need that they might not learn in their math book or grammar text.

This handy life skills checklist from Tonia at The Sunny Patch breaks down a variety of life skills that every child should have by the time they leave the nest. Make sure they know how to do these basic things and you’ll have some kids ready to take on the world!
