    I think that learning how to write a check to pay a bill would be a great addition to this list for this age group. Whether it is paying for the weekly groceries or paying for a cell phone (if your child has their own). I’m always trying to think of the small things that my kids are going to need to be able to do once they leave home and make sure I train them for it. Paying bills on time certainly makes the list!
    Thanks for the great chore charts. I’ve found them really helpful.

    I have my 17 year old call his refill for prescriptions in–pay his car insurance with a debit card over the phone and pay for things in the grocery store using coupons -debit card and promo that the store offers. He also makes deposits at the ATM. When ordering on line he must read for return info and understand fees etc. At at the Drs office he must answer all the questions and tell them how and what he is feeling. we are working on “pre planning” for things we need to do and how to save a trip. Thanks MB
