Drdirt, that is so true! I raised my daughters to know how to do a lot basic things, it paid off because all of their boyfriends couldn’t even change a flat tire, once while my daughter was on a date they had a dead battery, they called one of their friends to come jump start the car, norther of the two guys knew how to connect the cables so my daughter had to do it. It’s very sad that parents don’t insist their kids know basic things like this. I can’t tell you how many kids I had to teach stuff like this because their parents were too lazy or never bothered to learn themselves. School kids these days don’t know anything, all their time is spent texting each other. Crap, I’m kinda doing that now! I better go build something!
