We know COVID-19 has had an impact on all of us, especially our teens. To help, educators at Ohio State University Extension Family and Consumer Sciences have created a “how to” video series, Tips for Teens, with information about life skills from basic car maintenance, doing laundry, cleaning a bathroom, folding a fitted bed sheet to making healthy snacks and shakes. The new weekly series, Tips for Teens, is designed to help teens develop some awareness, knowledge, skills, and aspirations about life readiness. Tips for Teens is a great way to learn how to do a task, and each video takes less than five minutes. The videos get teens focused on what matters most: Building skills and gaining confidence!  OSU Extension launched the “Tuesday Tips for Teens” campaign starting Tuesday, April 14.
