This fall, a local school division will be offering a new course called Adulting. The course will teach basic every day life skills that ‘grown ups’ need to know.
My first reaction was that it’s about time. Finally, schools will be teaching practical everyday things that are useful and important as part of the education curriculum.
Then I wondered, where are the parents. Aren’t they the ones that have the responsibility to teach their kids how to write a cheque? I’m guessing the course is necessary because most parents would get a failing grade in this subject. There is a very good chance too that many adults could use an adulting course.
So, good for the school division to recognize the need. I can only hope the Adulting course is mandatory for the kids. They will need all the help they can get.
