In recent years, the Millennial generation has caught a lot of flak for being coddled, useless, and overly sensitive. They say this is a generation stuck living with their parents, jobless, directionless, loaded with debt, and reluctant to grow up, because they weren’t raised properly. Now there’s a school to fill the glaring gaps in their education, and teach these grown up kids how to actually function as adults.

The Adulting School in Maine was created by a psychotherapist who noticed that so many of her young clients didn’t know how to do things like paying bills on time and choosing a career.” Rachel Weinstein, the co-founder of the group, explained that “You know, when you see 10 people feeling like they’re the only one, and they’re all struggling with the same thing, you think, let’s get these people together so they can learn this stuff and not feel so isolated and ashamed.”

The school offers social media groups and live events at bars and restaurants, where they teach these people things like how to run their finances, DIY repairs, and networking. During an interview with NPR, several of these adults were struggling to learn how to fold a fitted sheet.

It’s easy to look at this seemingly helpless generation and determine that this is all their fault; but you have to wonder, why weren’t Millennials taught this stuff in the first place? Why didn’t the schools and their parents teach them real practical skills that they would actually use? Why were they pampered and told that they could be anything they wanted? How in the hell did we let an entire generation grow up without learning the basic skills required to survive in this world? This isn’t a generation of a failures. This a generation that society has failed, and the mere existence of this Adulting School proves it.

I wonder if they learn how it feels to have their ass beat or face slapped.

While I'm not for the beating of children, i can say I learned A LOT about life while trying to avoid being beat. Like how to get away with crazy shit. How
NOT to get caught.
I can relate, I'm a millennial and my parents taught me jack shit, I had to learn everything myself.

I'm the same way, but I WANTED to learn things...It was fun.

I had older siblings and great parents (who worked a lot), I'm happy my siblings taught me a lot about good music and how to have fun...but that shit doesn't change a tire or check your oil or put up a shelf.

I remember changing my first tire, it took me 1.5 hours...After a couple more times I made it down to 15min.

Most of the people I know around my age are clueless about changing a tire.. It ain't brian science fellas..

I was on my own at a young age and repairs and common sense skills were required to survive.. Not an option.

I try to show younger bucks life skills every chance I get unless they are dour and unresponsive to it.. Maybe my approach is off.. I usually start by yelling "SACK UP son! its MANHOOD TRAINING TIME!!"
