Life skills are abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable humans to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life; in other words, psychosocial competency. They are a set of human skills acquired via teaching or direct experience that are used to handle problems and questions commonly encountered in daily human life. Life skills are usually associated with managing and living a better quality of life. They help us to accomplish our ambitions and live to our full potential. The subject varies greatly depending on social norms and community expectations but skills that functions for well-being and aid individuals to develop into active and productive members of their communities are considered as life skills. Developing life skills are especially important in the case of urban Indian children, who are normally not expected to do their own work e.g cleaning up dishes after eating or assembling own toys using tools and can be found really wanting in certain critical life-situations later on in life-e.g reading traffic signals, assembling furniture etc.
