Happy Aloha Friday!
After our last Podcast Episode (on raising boys who will be ready to launch one day!) we’ve been talking more about teaching our boys the LIFE SKILLS they need to be independent one day. These life skills can (and should!) begin when boys are young, and will build on each other and add up to make a responsible young man one day. (the goal!!)
Listeners have been asking me for ideas on what kids should do at various ages, so I decided to share one of the resources I offer to BOY MOM Book readers: A list of LIFE SKILLS which should be learned at different stages of a boy’s life. (find download at the bottom of this page!)
This Aloha Friday Episode offers a weekend challenge for you: Choose one life skill to work on with your son/children this weekend! Whether you teach them to make their bed, tie their shoes, clean the toilet, or change a tire, I encourage you to find something to teach them this weekend! (or sometime soon!)
This episode also includes my response to a reader who emailed asking for advice on SIBLING BULLYING. I think the perspective and principles I offer will be an encouragement to you whether your children bicker a little, or a LOT… 🙂
You can find the Boy Mom Podcast on all of the podcast platforms…here are just a few of them:
Or you can listen right here! 🙂
Feel free to leave a comment below, sharing about a life skill you are working on with your kids!
Hope you can grab the free download here and print it out to walk through with kids of all ages.
Thank you for sharing the Boy Mom Podcast with your friends and for leaving ratings and reviews wherever you listen. It means so much to me!
Have a great weekend ahead! Big hugs…
