7 Skills Every Kid Should Have By The Time They’re 12


Kids start learning right away from the time of birth. They learn quite a few things from their own. Rest of the things they learn from adults. Kids do not know what skills they should learn. They don’t even know what is good or bad for them. Parents and teachers know what skills kids should develop for the future. Here, we have shortlisted seven important skills that every child should learn before they become a teenager.

1. Good manners

When a child speaks politeness should reflect in his/ her behavior, make sure they use polite words such as thank you may I know…, sorry to interrupt you. etc. They should also exhibit good table manners while eating.

2. They can carry on a conversation.

Children should encourage speaking logically. A logical thinker can pull off a conversation to a great extent. You can provide general knowledge stuffs to them. They should be allowed to read age-appropriate books apart from their academic books.

3. Swimming

Swimming is a good exercise for adults and kids as well. Kids should learn swimming by the time they reach 12. You can spend good quality time with kids while swimming with you. Make sure the child swims with safety precautions.

4. Care for another living thing.

On a humanitarian background, caring for animals and plants is a great thing to do. When your child feeds a pet or water plants, it is a sign that your child cares for other living beings. They should think beyond their personal needs.

5. They can clean their room.

Cleaning up their room is a good start towards making them responsible. Kids should be given the task to take care of their belongings. They should place their stuff in right place.

6. They know how to write a letter or email

Kids must know how to compose a formal mail or letter to their teachers, principal, friends, and relatives. Formal writing leaves a great impression on readers' minds than emojis and contraction words.

7. They can reach you

God forbid if your child lost his/ her way back home they should be trained well to reach you soon. They should remember the phone numbers, addresses, email addresses of more than two people.
