Life Skills for kids aged 2 - 15

Discussion in 'The CookingBites Cafe' started by The Late Night Gourmet, 23 Jan 2019.

  1. I certainly didn't make this list, but I found it interesting. I found it on that source of truth called "pinterest", but you can certainly make up your own mind about them, regardless of the source. Now. I'm trying to recall if I had the skills listed below at these ages. I'm not sure if I was taking dirty dishes to the sink at age 2, for example. I'm fairly certain I wasn't putting my toys away at that age, either.

    My 9 year old granddaughter Isla gets up first and gets her 2 brothers 7 and 4 their breakfasts.has done for a few years. My son and his wife have very busy jobs so that's how they role. Isla likes playing mother duck. Kids rise at 6 am.

    I appreciate life skills should be taught but some seem a bit extreme for youngsters.
  5. Some days, I'm happy if they just put their dirty clothes in the hamper and put their dirty dishes in the sink (which are on the Age 2-3 list...I suppose the bar is a lot lower than it should be).
