    Dear fellow parents, all I'm looking for is a one word answer to my question and I'd be so grateful 😊 if as many of you can help me by answering.

    The question; Yes or No - do you think your child is prepared for university, do they have the life skills (cooking, budgeting etc?).

    Thank you so much everyone 😊

    Maybe you should qualify that - do you mean to parents of a child about to go to Uni this September? Mine definitely does not have the skills, but then he won't be going until next September, so it would skew your results if I said no, it's meaningless without their age...

    Thank you Artjen - you are correct! I will clarify. Yes - this question is aimed at those parents who have children that will start university this September. For you, do you feel that your child be better prepared this time next year? If so, how? Do you teach your child or does the school do anything to help with life skills?

    That's weird - I can see the poll, but I am viewing the site via my phone's browser rather than using TSR Mobile.

    Our eldest has just finished his first year at university (self-catered halls).Not sure how well-prepared he was - he had probably done more cooking at Scout camps than at home(!), but he seems to have survived intact, nutritionally speaking. .
