Children go to school and learn a lot of new things, more so theoretically. But there are several extremely essential skills that need to be taught at home. What are they? Read on to know.
Doing basic household chores
Being a doting parent doesn’t mean that you don’t let your child do anything at home. You can include your child in activities like folding the laundry, washing the dishes, lending a hand in cooking, cleaning the house, organizing his/her cupboards, etc. These are all basic activities and will help them be independent as well.
Not every school includes swimming in their Physical Training period. So, enroll them in swimming classes without waiting for the school to start a training session. Swimming is an essential skill that all children ought to learn, for you never know when they might need it.
Dealing with a calamity
There are some natural/manmade calamities that we can be prepared for. Earthquakes, fire, robbery and molestation are just a few of them. How to tactfully deal with the situation and what needs to be done is something that can be taught to the kids. And of course, do we need to tell you that enrolling for martial arts can be helpful too?
