Every parent wonders if they are doing a good job, and asks themselves, "What are the best things you can do for your children?" Being a good parent isn't about giving your children everything they want;

teaching them skills and giving them affection are far more important.

Here are some of the best things you can do for your children in order to equip them for the adult world and help them grow into confident people …

1. Financial Knowledge

One of the best things you can do for your children is to teach them how to manage money.2

Unfortunately, many people grow up without learning a commonsense attitude towards financial issues.

So ensure that your kids learn how to be sensible about money - this is a skill that will serve them very well indeed.

2. Independence

Do you know any parents who just can't let go of their offspring?3

Some still treat their adult children as their mini-mes, even when the "children" have long since left childhood behind.

If you bring up your children to be independent, then you're doing a good job.

3. Individuality

Sadly, not all parents are good at encouraging their children to develop their own interests and personalities.

You may have parents who wanted you to follow in their footsteps in some way, and who didn't give you the chance to pursue your own path.

When you're bringing up your own kids, don't make the same mistake.

Always help them to be a person in their own right.

4. Education

Not every child is academic, but encourage your kids to work hard on their education.

Qualifications will give them a better chance of doing well in life.

Studying is so important, so identify what their best subjects are, encourage them to pursue the topics they most enjoy, and help them in the subjects they aren't so hot on.
