Chalk Talk: Life Skills for College
Preparing a teenager for college is no small feat. There are many life skills and considerations to discuss before the first day. If your child is an only child, the discussions should also include expectations of living with someone and how they will communicate about any issues or concerns. On a more basic level, teens should also know how to do their own laundry before going to college. This includes separating and folding them, as well as how to make basic repairs. Finally, parents should help the child learn how to manage money. They should know what is required to balance a checkbook and why they should pay their bills on time. These skills can help to make life a little easier for the teens when they are away from home and at college.
