In our life skills parenting courses, one of the big topics that all of us struggle with is managing our money & our time.
Time is our most precious asset, so we have to spend it wisely. However, the way we spend our money has some surprising implications on our time that we need to consider carefully.
When we think about purchases, we have to thoughtfully evaluate every one we make. There is a simple equation that can help us remember the implications our purchases have on our time- it is: “LESS STUFF = MORE TIME”.

We hope you found this article helpful – it is from the Life’s Top 10: “Trailmap for Life” resources designed to help parents successfully navigate life. This program offers life-skills sessions where parents & their kids participate together- either on your own, or as part of a small or large group.
If you’re a parent or a parent-figure of kids ages 10-20, this is a critical component in preparing your kids for life – options include our:
Each one offers a unique experience with your kids.
As parents, we all want to raise kids who are well-prepared for life on their own. Kids with solid character who understand how to make wise choices. Choices in core life topics such as friends, dating, money, health, drugs, and how they spend their time.
Unfortunately, each year, millions of kids set out on their own, unprepared for what they’ll face- and that’s when they learn things the hard way- with consequences that can last a lifetime. It was this critical scenario that led to the development of Trailmap for Life, a non-profit program solely focused on helping people understand & navigate the 10 most important topics in life. Each of the 10 monthly sessions covers one of life’s 10 critical topics- with powerful videos, a workbook, & life-skills activities that make it fun & easy to participate! This program offers life-changing insight from leaders & experts across the country…. And it’s forever changing those who experience it.
It’s easy to organize & host a group: Participating with other parents & their kids offers even more benefits – simply select the group option on the website & choose your meeting dates & times…then enter the email addresses of the parents you want to invite. The website sends out the invites, tracks responses, and then throughout the program sends out automated communications & reminders based on the meeting schedule you set. All you’ll do to host each session is follow a few short instructions, play the session video, and enjoy the experience with your kids & your friends. No prep work is required at all! And since all sessions are available 24/7 online, it’s ok if people can’t make all the group meetings – they can do those sessions anytime…
Whether on your own or as part of a group, this program helps you achieve the relationship that every parent wants with their kids and feel confident that you have prepared them well for life on their own. We hope that you will join us for the adventure of a lifetime!
