What Kids Need To Know

 

With the start of lockdown-easing today, children are going back to school at last.  It has been a whole year since the Grandchildren picked up their folders, collected their bags and went home for the duration.  It got me thinking about what kids need to know, what to learn on a daily basis and what to do while they are young and carefree.  I came up with the following:

Experiences
  • Play outside and get dirty
  • Play a sport
  • Learn to swim
  • Ride a bike or scooter
  • Learn to  roller skate
  • Go to a pantomime
  • Visit the cinema
  • See a play at the theatre
  • Craft something eg paint, cut, stick, colouring books
  • Feed the ducks
  • Learn to recognise the birds visiting the garden
  • Visit the seaside
  • Visit the countryside

Life Skills

  • Handling money, budgeting and saving
  • Ironing simple things
  • Washing up
  • Simple cooking eg beans on toast, a boiled egg, a baked potato
  • Make a cake and lick the bowl!
  • Make a cup of tea
  • Make a sandwich
The list is endless.  All of the above were achieved by our Grandchildren (now 13 and 16 yrs old) either by being taught by their mum or by me.  I took our Granddaughter to the theatre when she was 3 yrs old and she was so enthralled by musical theatre that she learned to dance, has become a Champion Dancer and holds maybe a hundred trophies.  Our Grandson is a brilliant footballer too, often gaining the 'Man of the Match' trophy.  Everything has, obviously, been curtailed during the pandemic but they are looking forward to returning to normality as soon as possible.

What would you add to the list?  What did you teach your own kids or what did your mum teach you that has turned out to be invaluable in life?

Thanks so much for popping in and stay safe everyone wherever in the world you happen to be x
