Skills Parents Fear Their Kids Won’t Have

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.  (SWNS)
