FINALLY! There is a new class to teach millennials learn life’s basic skills like budgeting, cooking, and time management. College is great, but it doesn’t exactly teach LIFE SKILLS. Many will say thats what parents are for but, not all parents know these skills to pass along either.
Rachel Flehinger is the co-founded of “adulting school” in Portland, Maine and is launching online classes this month. The classes are geared towards millennials anywhere. Experts say millennials are behind because many haven’t left childhood homes.
The U.S. Census Bureau says in 2015, 34% of Americans between 18 and 34 still lived with a parent. That’s compared to just 26% in 2005. That translates into young adults marrying later, having children later, and ultimately figuring out those crucial life skills later, too.
