Life Skills Checklist

It’s easy to take for granted the skills you use every day that help you function as an independent adult. We all had to learn those skills somehow, but those who learned them in a low-stakes environment before they moved out most likely encountered less stress. To ease your own child’s transition, make sure they already know some basic life skills before they leave home.
