I think a young person should be able to balance checkbook, save money, do laundry, and make their own meals.

I think a young person should know how to prepare at least three meals for each traditional meal" breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also how to do laundry and basic sewing to mend, hem and sew on a button.

Balancing a checkbook would be a big one for my family, my mother still has trouble with it at age 59. I don't want my son to be in the same boat.

It comes down to a simple question: what do you want out of life, and what are you willing to do to get it?

Stop digging your grave with your own knife and fork.

What are some skills youth should know before leaving home and living on their own?

Examples: setting up utilities, paying bills, having a bank account, (perhaps) learning to drive, cooking, safe food preparation, etc.

Thanks for any input!! :)
