My boys are 8 and 16.i think everyone should know safe food prep and cook some basic dishes of various kinds (plus how to do dishes and put food away) - bread fits in this part.
proper nutrition is also important.
how to do laundry (ironing is not a life skill IMO ), minor sewing/repair and how to clean the house.
gardening and basic canning (including when to know when to pressure can vs. everything else).
how to start a fire and basic first aid are also good things to know.
Heading into the teen years, I would include financial budgeting and time management planningWhat do you think every kid should know?
That's never been a problem for me BUT I'll question a doctor and insist on answers. Maybe because I worked for a surgeon beginning when I was in high school and for a while after....lot of exposure to many things. A great learning experience.now many women cannot get adequate health care unless they bring a man to their appointment.
