Kelly doesn't know what she want to do with her life. Kelly has always been told what to do and what her future will look like. She is to marry a man and be the typical trophy life. One day Kelly realizes she needs to get away and choose her own life. With a little help with her brother she enrolls in college, shares a house with two other girls, and gets a real job. Kelly is hoping she will be able to find a guy who is nothing like the guy her parents tried to marry her off too. Maybe her new professor will show her the way?
Layton doesn't know if he is going to keep pursuing a career in teaching. He is currently a economic professor, but wants to find a way for him to be an independent contractor. Layton starts a club called the, " Adulting Club". This where he teaches students how to do things on their own like how to chance a tire, how to turn on the gas in a house, etc. What he doesn't expect is for once student to capture his interest.
There are classes you can take now that are just like the "Adulting Club" in college. They give credits for learning how to do basic things like cook, car maintenance, house maintenance, etc. In one way I do agree there should be classes to teach you the simple basics of life. On the other hand I never had that so maybe I'm a little bias.
If I wanted to learn something I had to ask or I was told I am going to need this in the future. Cooking for example. I learned to cook around the age of 10. My mom taught me how to bake, how to prepare meals, and what to do in case of a fire. When I got married she handed me her recipe cards and I learned how to cook my way.
I learned how to change a tire, check my oil, listen for sounds the car makes, and basic maintenance on my vehicle. Guess who taught me? My dad and my uncle who was a mechanic. I asked and they taught.
Unfortunately, in some cases they don't have people in their life who they can ask. They do not have people around them who will take the time to teach them. So, in someways I do believe a class like this is necessary, but for the parents or role model figures who don't take the time out shame on them.
I have taken the time out to start to teach mine thing and my hubby has also. So, take time out and teach something to those little ones it makes all the difference!!
