10 Ways That Parents Can Prepare Little Humans to “Adult”

Below are 10 ways you can help prepare your children to be adults.

It’s a sad fact that many parents today are sabotaging their child’s future without even knowing what they are doing or understanding the implications of some of their parenting habits.

There is no doubt in my mind that the majority of parents want to raise independent adults; I don’t know of any parents personally who want their kids to suffer from a failure to launch or to always be running back to Mom or Dad to get help. Parents who want their kids to remain dependent are probably out there, but they are ultra-extreme controllers with their own neediness issues.

So if we all agree that we want our kids to learn how to adult well, where and when do you start this process?
