Critical and creative thinking

When it comes to decision making, parents will not always be there to make decisions for their children when outside. Your child needs to learn to say Yes and No where necessary. However, creative thinking will help them solve life challenges. Always teach your child to make the right decisions. They should always know that everything they do has a consequence.

Being able to control themselves is one essential thing they need to have. They should always know how to discern good company of friends to those bad ones.

Being open-minded

It is a free world. Your teen should know that everyone has their own opinion and that being open minded will give them more ideas. They should be able to listen to people and follow what is right. They should not just say yes or no to everything without weighing it.

Grooming and dressing well

When teens are under their parents care, it is their parents who often dress them and make sure they are well groomed. They are told what to wear and what not to wear.  As they are moving out, make sure you teach them how to dress well and how well they need to groom. Remind them that how they dress is how they will be addressed.

Financial management

This is the most important skill your child needs to learn. When giving him or her pocket money, they need to know how to budget well what they have been given. They also need to account on every expenditure. This will help them throughout their lifetime.
