WHO’s definition of Life Skills:
Life skills are the abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enables us to deal effectively with
the demands and challenges of everyday life. Some examples are decision making, problem
solving and creative thinking. Although we learn these skills to some extent in our schools – lack of
practical exposure, time and the necessary resources make effective learning difficult. The result:
life for our children is more stressful and difficult than it should be. They should have it easier!
