For a child to be a survivor in this chaotic world, it’s very important to learn a few things during the transition from teenage to adulthood.
Adulthood is about taking responsibilities. Teenagers need to stop relying on their parents or others for tasks that they could easily manage themselves. Doing your work yourself builds confidence in teenagers that help in later stages of life to deal even with difficult situations and makes them more responsible.
For a teenager to become a successful adult both in professional and personal front of life, understanding and valuing time could be a make or break factor. Teenagers can write down their schedule to streamline their important tasks and avoid procrastination.
The real value of money can only be understood when it’s paid from your own pocket. Teenagers should start developing this habit when they come off the right age. Snow shoveling service in the winter or babysitting jobs or walk the neighbor's dog are some examples of how teenagers can earn to not ask their parents for pocket money.
When teenagers pay on their own they get better control over their urge to splurge. They start making a right use of the money, which is highly required to maintain a balance between “needs and wants”.
Don’t blame others for not being able to achieve something you wished or wanted. A teenager should accept their mistakes and try to learn from them to make better decisions next time.
When teenagers understand that they are responsible for what they are doing, they take it seriously and sincerely, which makes them disciplined and ready for a long ride through the storms of the wild.
The heuristic approach helps teenagers learn by discovering things themselves and learning from their own experiences rather than by telling them things. It helps them improve their cognition and become ready to take new and challenging tasks without having to worry about failure.
