We all understand just how important a good education is in helping our children develop into productive and successful adults.
Good school exam results present more opportunities, and higher education can open doors that high school alone cannot.
However, for all of the great things we learn at school, there are certain things in life that cannot be discovered in a classroom.
There are lots of things children can learn from their parents, family, and the people around them, and these lessons can greatly influence their futures.
There are plenty of examples of success stories involving people who didn’t succeed at school but did once they entered the adult world.
One of the best examples of this is Sir Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Group. Now with a net worth of over 5 billion US dollars, Branson was already a budding entrepreneur at the age of 16. After leaving school, he decided to set up his own student magazine. This kick-started his whirlwind career and led him to become one of the most successful men in history.
You can find lots more examples of people who learned their keys to success from their life experiences instead of from traditional education in this piece from How Stuff Works.
Clearly, there have been many successful entrepreneurs who left school in search of an education in things outside of the standard curriculum.
With this in mind, Noticeboards Online has created a very interesting infographic titled ‘How To Teach Your Children To Be Entrepreneurial’.
This presents a number of ideas about life lessons that children may not gain at school, and why parents should consider these lessons important. Take a look for yourself below.
