Ten Traditional Skills That Are Dying Out
Not that long ago that, people could actually do things without googling them first or they had to learn how to do them hands-on. In other words, your grandparents had a whole set of skills your kids probably never will.
According to a new survey of 2,000 people, here are the ten traditional skills that are dying out:
- Reading a map.
- Using a compass.
- Knowing how to tie different knots.
- Darning socks, which means fixing holes in them. Most young people don't even know "darning" is a word.
- Looking something up in a book by using the index.
- Knowing how to format a letter.
- Knowing measurement conversions, like there are four quarts in a gallon.
- Spelling and grammar.
- Building a fire.
- Having good penmanship, because no one writes anything anymore.
