Young people can be the first to tell you that life skills are a huge asset for their lives.
But for many, the value of those skills comes from their own lives.
It’s not that they’re something that just needs to be taught; they can be developed and practised in their own homes and on their own terms.
And they can improve your overall wellbeing.
The ABC’s Life Skills for Life programme has been exploring life skills for life for many years.
We asked what’s the value and what skills are essential to helping you build up a life skills network.
We’re asking you to answer some questions about life skills and the life skills we want you to develop.

What do you need to know about life-related skills?
What are the skills that will help you get through life?
We’ve produced a guide for young people.
It provides an overview of the key life skills that young people need to have, and gives a range of examples of how to develop those skills.
This guide also includes a guide to learning life skills as an adult.
What if I don’t have the time?
We also offer information and resources on life skills through the ABC Life Skills Programme for Life (see below), the ABC’s Learning life skills website, and our Life Skills Online app, which provides a daily summary of all the life-skill resources available to young people online.
Why is it important to develop life skills?
The development of life skills has been linked to a range in life, and it’s also an important aspect of being a good parent, a good partner, and a good member of society.
This is particularly true for people who are at risk of developing some of the life skill deficiencies listed in this guide.
What are some of those life skill deficits?
Life skills include the ability to: learn, understand, reason, manage, think, remember and analyse.
They also include: self-discipline, self-control, responsibility, responsibility for oneself and others, selfless care and concern for others, responsibility to others, and self-reliance.
You also need to be able to: communicate effectively, respond appropriately, use your body effectively, adapt to change, and manage emotions.
The skills also help you: prepare for a range to occur, such as changes in a situation or situation-related events, and cope with life’s challenges.
What about some of these life skills also come from social skills?
Social skills include being able to understand and manage others and understand the feelings, attitudes and behaviour of others.
Some social skills, such of being able as an ally, being able in social situations to use your voice, and being able cope with stress, are key to a well-being and a productive and enjoyable life.
Life skills are also important in helping you to build and manage relationships.
Life SkillsIn your own home and in your workplace.
Developing life skills is not a problem-free process.
You’ll need to: think about what you need and what your skills are important for you to have in your life, for yourself and for others; plan for how your life will change when you develop these skills; learn how to apply these skills effectively; learn to develop and share your own experiences and ideas; work to develop relationships and skills.
Where and when to start?
You’ll also need time to develop the skills, learn to use them and build relationships.
Some activities and activities are not covered in this guidance.
What you can do When you develop life skill skills, you can: practice your life in a way that’s beneficial to yourself and others;
