Pretty interesting study for the most part. There are a multitude of factors that are coming into play but the idea that basic survival knowledge and being able to handle basic tasks are declining is disappointing. I find it incredible that only 37% feel confident when dealing with a flat tire. While I agree with the conclusion that modern living can often leave no time for dealing with these sorts of tasks, a basic knowledge can prove to be invaluable. Not only can it give you confidence and a sense of accomplishment but it can also save valuable time and money. I guess I can count my blessings that the upbringing by my parents allowed for opportunities to learn these sorts of DIY skills.
