The Main Types Of Skills Your Child Needs

Parents are always keen for their children to improve as much as possible, and this is something that can b surprisingly difficult to get right. But if you want your child to do as well as possible in their early life, and so their later life, you might want to think about helping them to develop those skills which are going to be most important. Knowing which are most important can be a challenge in itself, but with a little forethought, you can soon discover which areas you should be encouraging in your children. With that in mind, let’s take a look at which areas you should focus on first and foremost so that you can expect to bring up more fully rounded children.


It is difficult to say which skills are most important of all, as they are all important in their own way, but allowing your children to develop strong social skills is probably up there with the most important. Having good social skills enables your children to communicate with others in a way which is healthy and positive. This ability itself goes on to affect many other areas of life in a similar fashion, so by developing these skills, you will be helping your child to also improve their life in many other ways. The best way to encourage your children to develop their social skills is to allow them the chance to actually practice those skills. This means giving them plenty of opportunities to engage with other children their age, and even with adults whom you trust if you feel that that is necessary too.


Being able to communicate with other people is not only something which comes under the umbrella of social skills but language skills as well. Your child will benefit greatly from being able to communicate in a strong and engaging way with others, and language is the tool which allows them to do just that. Fortunately, most educational systems now and pretty well focussed on language, but you still might decide that you should help this along with a little if you want to give your child that extra push. If you take a look at the Effortless English blog, you will find some advice on how to help your child improve their English speaking and listening skills. These skills will have so many ongoing benefits that there is no point in not attending to them as early as possible, so make sure you do.


As well as the above, you might also agree that it is important to allow your child to develop certain personal skills as well. These can be many different things, but one of the most important aspects of personal skills is hygiene. Being hygienic is important as it ensures that your child stays healthy as much as possible. Therefore, be sure to teach them well about how to be hygienic in daily life - it really will make a world of difference.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
