Beyond School

One of the most important things to remember as a parent is that school is an extension, not a replacement for the education you need to provide for your child/children. Some of the items I would say from experience that most public K-12 schools don’t teach are and are important for children to mature well include:

  • Manners
  • Personal hygiene
  • Faith
  • Personal Finances
  • The Golden Rule
  • Board Games
  • Dance
  • Firearm Safety
  • Dignity
  • Hope
  • Sledding
  • Parenting Skills
  • Self Defence
  • Internet/Social Media etiquette
  • Marriage Skills
  • Building Sand Castles
  • Phone skills
  • Driving

These are just some of the important life skills a parent needs to promote, model, and support for their children. If you’d like to add to the list feel free to send your items over!
