When my daughter started driving, I realized she had never pumped gas. How did I not teach her that?
I started thinking, "What other life skills haven't I taught her?"
We don't have a big public transportation system here in town. She doesn't have much experience there.
She can pack her own bag and do laundry. We are good there.
(I just realized I didn't know how to do laundry until I was out of college. How sad is that?)
As she gets ready for college soon, I guess we are pretty close with the necessary skills.
