Life skills are all those necessary abilities which are generally not taught through books or education curriculum but are indispensable aid in tackling problems of real life.
Ideally, Parents or guardians are the first ones who show them the right path. Yet in the current hustle and bustle parents forgo the essentiality of life skills in favour of rigorous lessons in maths and science. In turn, at a tender age, children get waylaid and are unable to cope with the fine vagaries of life.
Therefore, it has become mandatory to include life skill lessons in the educational curriculum.
