10 Powerful Lessons for Kids and Teens

Life can be like a roller coaster of emotions and experiences that brings us to places we never thought possible.

Life is something many people take for granted until they are faced with the reality that it won't last forever. 

10 Powerful Lessons for Kids and Teens


It is our duty as parents, guardians, teachers, and coaches to help equip children and teens with life lessons before they step out into this big world on their own.

Spend Time With Those That Matter    

No matter what age you are, time is precious. Life moves quickly and if you don't take the opportunity to spend it with those that matter most, they may be gone before you know it.

  • Improves Mental Health - Life is about relationships. Life lessons are not always easy or pleasant but they can help us find a greater sense of peace in the present moment when we know that what has happened, will happen again and what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
  • Helps Children Perform Well Academically -  Life lessons are often about learning how to handle adversity. Life is not always easy, and if we can teach our children some of life's hard truths early on they may be better equipped as they grow up in this increasingly complicated world.
  • Helps Teens Make Smart Life Choices - Life isn't just about the big moments like graduating from high school or getting married. Life is about making small, daily decisions that can have a big impact on where we end up in the future. Life lessons teach teens how to make smart choices and not regret them later as they get older

Spend more time with grandparents

It's important to spend time with our grandparents.

As you are well aware, they won't be around forever.

We often take care of grandparents when they are in need and find ourselves feeling overwhelmed by the responsibility, but these life lessons offer a way to look at it differently and see this as an opportunity to care for the person who cared for us when we were younger.

Your grandparents have a wealth of life experience.

They have been through more than we can even begin to imagine.

When you spend time with your grandparents, they teach you about the world and how it used to be when they were our age.

Life lessons like these are invaluable because one day that information may come in handy for us too

Love unconditionally

Life lessons about unconditional love don't just apply to romantic relationships, but also to friends and family as well.

This life isn't easy so it's important for our kids (teens) to learn how to have some understanding of life outside their own little world.

Be Humble

It’s a good idea to be humble and to understand that there is more than just one way of doing things and it's not always easy. 

It can take a lot of time, effort, money, or luck but having humility will help you get through life with much less stress on yourself.

Make time for friends today because tomorrow isn't guaranteed     

We often make time for family but it's just as important to spend some quality time with friends.

Life can be unpredictable and as we get older, our friendships may change due to life events.

It's so important that we take the opportunity now while they're still around because tomorrow isn't guaranteed

It doesn't have to be extravagant or expensive; it's about spending time with friends and being present. Life is so much more than work, bills, or the rat race.

It's not your job to change other people 

It's not your job to change other people. Life is about taking care of yourself and being happy, even if you're surrounded by negative people who are dragging you down. 

You owe it to yourself to find the joy in life no matter what challenges come up

It can be tough at times but that doesn't mean we should take on more than we can handle.

It is all about finding a balance and getting the help that you need to get through anything

We have so many opportunities in life, but some of us feel stuck in jobs or relationships that hold us back from living up to our potential.

Life requires taking risks, both personally and professionally.

You are powerful and capable beyond what you can imagine   

The challenges in life are often what make us stronger and gives us the ability to appreciate everything we have.

We all deserve a chance at living an awesome, fulfilling life that brings out our best self. Life is about the journey, not how it ends.

The best way to live an amazing life? Take a risk and do something you're afraid of doing -- because that's where true growth lies.

There are no mistakes, only lessons     

At the end of each day, reflect on what you've learned and try your best to let it make a positive change. Life is full of uncertainty--it's important that we're willing to learn from our mistakes in order for us to grow as people.

In the end, life is about being happy. Life is full of ups and downs--but it's important to make sure that you're living with a smile on your face all the time. 

Things aren’t always perfect, but if we work hard for what we want in life then everything will be worth it.

Be grateful

At the end of each day, think about all the things you're grateful for. Life is full of difficult moments--but it's important to make sure that we don't lose sight of what we have and be thankful for everything in our lives.

Happiness doesn't come from material objects or money; happiness comes from within us.

When we're happy with who we are, it's easier to be grateful for all that we have.

It's about being happy--so make sure you take time out of your day to appreciate what you currently have and spend time on yourself rather than others. 

Life isn't always perfect, but if we work hard enough then everything will turn out just fine.

Bonus - Live in the moment

Live in the moment and make the most of what you have. 

Life is short, and it can be taken away from us at any moment--so we should always live in the present for as long as possible so that we don't regret losing time with friends and family because life moves so fast.
