Millennials are taking ‘adulting’ classes … yes, we’re serious — Forever 39 Podcast
'Adulting' classes for millennials — Is this really necessary?
Adulting classes, yes, ADULTING CLASSES! This is what is in demand for some in the millennial generation.
Two women from Maine, one's a psychoterapist and the other is a teacher, started The Adulting School last year to help millennials learn some basic skills their educations didn't teach them. Basically, the school teaches them how to "adult."
According to a report by the New York Post, the classes are $19.99 each and cover five different categories.
Some of the lessons taught, like how to make a bed or clean a kitchen, seem pretty easy to us, but we're Gen-Xers so perhaps we can't relate. Other lessons, like how to manage finances, are a bit more complicated.
So what is adulting anyway? Well, according to the school's website, there are six essentials of adulting: relationships, community, DIY, work, money, and wellness.
If you want to test your Adulting IQ, the school offers a quiz that you can take. Will you pass, well, let's hope so!
