Kids don’t “come of age” like they used to. In these days of AI voice assistance, self-driving cars and apps to take care of everything from getting dinner to getting a date, the life skills needed to transition from childhood into adolescence are fast being boiled down to using your thumbs to operate a smartphone.

But that doesn’t mean your children shouldn’t know how to live life like the sort-of adult they’ll be by the time they enter high school. The fundamentals still apply. In fact, you could make a pretty good argument that kids who know how to do the things their parents’ generation had to do when they were growing up are better off today — it sets them apart.

In any case, be they winner or whiner, your kid should definitely know how to do these things by the time they head for high school.
