Life lessons and life skills that parents want to teach!

All parents hope to teach their children important life lessons as they grow up, but these days it’s getting harder and harder to do just that. A new survey finds that most parents agree there are certain barriers that get in the way of them imparting all the wisdom they want on their child, with work one of the biggest factors.

The poll finds that working more than 40 hours a week is one of the main things that get in the way of parents being able to teach kids all they want to (33%), followed by being focused on providing necessities (23%) and not being able to spend enough quality time with their kids (22%).  As for the life lessons parents most want to teach their children, “Be respectful,” “be thankful for what you have” and “honesty is the best policy” are the top three selected by moms and dads.
