Teaching children life skills

Hi all,

I really didn’t know where to post this so I’m sorry if it’s the wrong thread.

my children again have been told to isolate at home for 14 days due to a classmate testing positive for Covid.

The school set homework which we will do but I have decided to also teach them life skills ie banking, savings, paying bills, being thrifty etc as I believe it is important.

Im sure in the past Martin published a booklet to teach children life skills, he intended to lobby the government to make it compulsory in schools but unfortunately failed.

Does anyone have a link to this booklet please? I’ve tried searching for ages and can’t find it.
