Do you remember back when you were just a kid and you used to wish you were already an adult so you could…I don’t know, get out of school and party and drink all the grog you possibly can. Well, now that you’re an adult, you’re probably wishing for your life back.

It’s funny why there’s even a need to study about how we should be getting our personal lives in order — but this one’s badly needed. Adult life often revolves around relationships, pregnancies, children and lots of health checks.

Home Life

The most basic life skill of them all — and yet the most neglected. Kids ought to learn how to fix simple troubles at home before moving out of the ‘rents’ house!
