Basic Skills of Adulthood

Whether you’re out on your own for the first time or facing a new life challenge, you need some basic skills to succeed. Learning to cook for yourself and doing minor home repairs is a great start. Then you can focus on other things like how to ask for what you want, learning to say “no,” or how to handle an emergency. Your Employee Assistance Program can help you get an “A” in Life 101.
