Are you parenting the adult of the future?:
A practical guide of 7 life skills of the future to prepare
your teenager and child.
The world of tomorrow will be completely different than the world we grew up in. How can you teach your child to be an adult of the future when no one knows what tomorrow will bring?
Parenthood is one of the hardest jobs in the world. To have a baby born a clean slate and guide them toward becoming a happy, well-adjusted adult is no easy feat. Parents know that they need to take care of their children’s physical and academic needs, but sometimes, mental health takes a bit of a backburner. Especially since we have no idea of knowing what the world will look like for our children, it’s difficult to prepare them. However, as the problems in the world change with passing time, one thing stays the same: The mental and emotional tools necessary to cope with whatever they may be.
As you read through this book, you will receive seven of the most important mental and emotional tools that every parent and child needs to have in their arsenal. These tools include resilience, creativity, mindfulness, self-compassion, and more, and as you read, you’ll learn of the importance of each tool as well as how to develop it for yourself and how to foster it in your children.
By implementing these seven tools into your life and emphasizing them in your own parenting, you will help to create the adults of tomorrow who will have these crucial tools that will prepare them for just about anything the world could possibly throw at them.
Your children look to you to be their guides in their early years. It’s up to you and your parenting styles to give them the tools they need to guide them through the rest of their lives.
