Teenage is the most beautiful time in one’s life, so make it the most valuable time of life too.
What happens in teens?
During teens and adolescent years we are interested in our looks and acceptance from peers. But one should understand the very important benefits of learning life skills.
What are life skills and why should we learn?
Life skills are nothing but how efficiently you manage your daily life. In Indian families when one starts a job or business, from the first month suddenly one realises how hard it is to manage so many aspects of being an adult like taking care of light bills, phone bills, groceries, taxes, maintenance of car, house, interpersonal relations, social commitments, job pressure, business tensions, peer pressure, job competitiveness and the list is endless. This is why we should be well equipped with at least those skills which we can learn early in life so that by the time we are on our career path we need to only concentrate on one or fewer responsibilities and other things can be managed swiftly and smoothly by us.
Which life skills are necessary?
Both girls and boys can learn basic skills such as bringing vegetables, basic knowhow to cook, payments of electricity, phone, water, gas bills, how your family business works, how the house budgeting is done, how to keep social contacts, to learn basic repair of taps, assembling furniture, putting up shelves, painting, fixing bulbs or repairing small household items, learn to budget during festivals for decor, learn driving, swimming and meditating too. The parents should let the child give his opinion and have active participation in decision making too. Children should take the lead in house events such as making guest lists or making some special dish for them or if not interested in food, write a poem or sing a song or some activity and showcase your talent. The list is endless
What are the benefits of life skills?
It may seem frivolous to learn all life skills but you surely must learn as much as you can because all this will make you a very strong person, a good decision maker, ability to cope with problems more critically and confidently, more creative in thinking, an effective communicator, better ability to cope with stress, smart at handling daily routines of house, better at coping with emotional situations, have good organisational skills and equally important you will have SELF CONFIDENCE that you are capable of doing it all. Once you are pro at this it will be easier to just focus on your career path when you start your job or business.
Crucial benefits of Life skills
The greatest benefit through all the learning is you may find your “PURPOSE” in life eg.. you may find cooking interesting and make it your career path or hospitality or organizing home or event managing or accountancy while doing the budgeting at home or you can be a great businessman realizing your skills at home or you may realize you are a great social influencer, a great communicator or some other talent like writing, designing, singing, painting, dancing etc to take up as your career option ahead. The list is again endless.
Why do you want to wait till you grow to be an adult struggling between many things when you have the chance of being proficient in almost all the necessary skills from home.
So why wait till 25!!!
Learn the skills when you are in your teens and spread your wings to fly above others.
