Helping Kids Prepare for Real Life—a 31 Day Series

*Note: By October 4 I have realized I am not going to be able to complete this series by writing daily this month. I will complete it, but it will be at the rate of a couple posts a week. My children and the needs of my home must come first and I have quickly realized I don't have it in me to write late into the night this year like I have in past October 31 Day Challenges. Please forgive me, but I am trying to put what I preach to practice. Kids come first! 

My oldest daughter is a senior in high school this year.

This is killing me for many reasons, but one thing that is at the forefront of my mind this school year is "what can I do to make sure she is ready to leave the nest and head off to college?"

Is she ready for real life?

Have I taught her everything she needs to know?

How will she survive without me?

Okay, so I know she will survive without me—but I want her to feel confident that she can. I want to send her off with an arsenal of skills, habits, and values that will help her survive in the real world.

Each day I will write about how to teach kids something that will help them to prepare for adulthood. If you'd like to follow along—feel free to sign up to receive daily emails below. *Note: You will receive a daily email for 30 days on top of the email that you already receive from me. I will also be including these posts in my weekly digest email that is sent out on Wednesdays.

You will be able to find each post linked on this page as well.

Let's get teaching our kids everything they need to know to survive on their own someday—whether that someday is soon like it is for me, or you have a little bit of time.
