Being a parent is about providing for and loving your children. But it’s also about teaching: teaching them colors when they’re toddlers, not to do drugs when they’re school age and more grown-up things when they’re teenagers. What other important, yet possibly overlooked, things should parents teach their teens about money, insurance and life in general?
1. How to pump gas and put air in tires. The last thing anyone wants is to be stranded.
2. Clip coupons for things you buy all the time. But don’t become fanatic about it—because, really, who has time for that?
3. Always clean out your refrigerator and microwave on a regular basis. Because it’s just gross if you don’t.
4. Change your furnace filter every other month. This lets your furnace work more efficiently and helps prevent fires.
5. Thaw your turkey in the fridge for four days before you attempt to cook it.
6. Know where the water shut-off valve is located. You never know when you might find yourself at midnight with a burst under-the-kitchen-sink pipe.
7. Make sure your stuff is covered by insurance. Having an insurance policy means that if something bad happens to your car, house, boat, things in your house, that new engagement ring, whatever, you can get back to normal.
