I hate when parents only yell at their kids for what they do wrong. I discourage yelling in our home. Kids listen better to talking it out. Praising them for what they do well is just as important. I can't image how some kids home lives can be. I'm so glad we get to be my boys parent's. They won't grow up in a home filled with arguing.
I loved this life skills list! It gave me lots of ideas on things I want to work on with my children (when I have them), in fun ways. If more people knew how to do all of these things well before adult life, it would make the adjustment a lot easier.
