What life skills do you think I should ensure that my children have learnt by the time they leave school? How to balance a checkbook (surely not)? How to deal with call centre operatives? How to wrestle alligators? How to iron a shirt? Which fork to use at dinner with the queen?
Advice welcome. There is some method to my madness; I have a plan to present M&J with a list and seek their involvement in learning, eg, how to do laundry.
