Edit Your Life Episode 129: How To Teach Kids Life Skills

Summer is the ideal time for your kids to learn real-world life skills no matter how old they are. And judging by the viral popularity of our recent “100 Life Skills You Can Teach Your Kids in 5 Minutes or Less” list, people want to get started. In Episode 129 of the Edit Your Life podcast, Asha and I follow up on the list with practical tips for how to teach kids life skills. We talk about the importance of frustration tolerance, how to nudge to reluctant kids to learn, the reality that kids sometimes learn more readily from other adults, and the welcome reminder that it’s never too late to start.
