Examples of things that everyone should know how to do as adults include changing a flat tire, swimming, performing CPR and making a monthly budget. People can learn how to change a tire or make a budget on their own, but should consider learning CPR and swimming by professionals for safety reasons.
Every driver should learn how to change a flat tire, since flat tires are inevitable. Knowing how to change a flat tire can help drivers save money by not having to use tow trucks, and it can save time spent waiting for roadside assistance programs.
Everyone should learn how to swim because it is a fun recreational activity, a good source of exercise and, above all, essential for safety. Swimming classes for adults are often offered at community centers or gyms with pools.
Learning how to perform CPR is important because it might help people save the lives of friends, family members, co-workers or strangers. The American Heart Association offers CPR certification classes nationwide via CPR.Heart.org.
Every adult should know how to make a monthly budget so they can understand and control how they spend their money. A monthly budget helps limit spending in certain areas and save money.
