Help Kids Succeed

What is one thing that you can do with your kids today that is guaranteed to turn into a life skill that helps them succeed?

You are already a pro at this. Let me prove it to you. Let’s imagine that you want to purchase a car. Where do you begin? You start with a budget and an idea of the type of car you desire. You research the pros and cons of the vehicle that you are thinking of buying. You scan the Internet for first-rate websites and the best deals. Voila! You find what you like, and you acquire it.

Or, envision that you want to buy a house or find a better job. What do you do? You research whatever you are looking for.
