The Significance of Homework
More than learning things that may (or may not) be important in their daily lives, the practice of doing homework helps teens develop a strong work ethic and introduces a habit of self-discipline. Teens need to understand that they may not use these equations in life, but that the skill of learning to turn their attention to something boring for a significant period is crucial.
You Allow Them to Miss Family Activities
It’s essential to ask your teen to participate in family gatherings. Whether it’s a trip to see an extended family member or a family getaway. Participating in family events asserts the primary social connection, which means that how teens understand the importance of being part of a family, a lasting bond, will help them with other relationships in life.
They Aren’t Taught to Save Money
Though this may seem a little far-fetched, teaching teens to set aside a small sum of money teaches them delayed gratification. Whether it is money from jobs, gifts from relatives, or their allowance, putting a little bit aside each month (or whatever time frame works best for your family) teaches prioritizing, self-restraint, and even planning ahead!
