How are Your Athlete’s Life Skills?

How are you doing when it comes to teaching your kids life skills? This is definitely an issue for parents today. Take a look at these results from a USA Today poll:

By the time kids are old enough for college and way beyond the point they should have graduated, parents — whether wealthy or not — are still doing things children can do for themselves. Such as:

•         76 percent reminded their adult children of deadlines they need to meet, including for schoolwork

•         74 percent made appointments for them, including doctor’s appointments

•         15 percent of parents with children in college had texted or called them to wake them up so they didn’t sleep through a class or test.
