There are some important life skills that you need to learn before you can successfully live independently. As an adult, managing everyday life includes things like doing your grocery shopping, paying bills, being able to cook a meal, washing and ironing your clothes and generally taking care of yourself.
Learning these skills before you turn 18 will help you to make a successful transition to adult life. It’s a lot to learn! It’s important to have people you can go to for help, if you are struggling with any of these things.
