There are things that every kid should learn as they grow up. Some of these things are simple matters of convenience. Others may just save a few dollars. More importantly – some may just save the kids life.

- Jump start a car
- Check your oil
- Hammer a nail
- Handle a gun
- Plant a seed, grow a vegetable, and eat it
- How to shake hands

- How to determine how much to tip
- Set up a camp site
- How to fish
- How to handle losing, and winning
- How to respect your elders
- Respect the environment
- Cook a steak to perfection
