8 Skills by Age 18

I really liked this article, "Former Stanford dean shares the 8 skills everyone should have by age 18":
  1. An 18-year-old must be able to talk to strangers
  2. An 18-year-old must be able to find his way around
  3. An 18-year-old must be able to manage his assignments, workload, and deadlines
  4. An 18-year-old must be able to contribute to the running of a household
  5. An 18-year-old must be able to handle interpersonal problems
  6. An 18-year-old must be able to cope with ups and downs
  7. An 18-year-old must be able to earn and manage money
  8. An 18-year-old must be able to take risks
I'm pretty sure that Scouting, when properly carried out, helps accomplish the entire list.
