Life skills are already defined as the capabilities for positive and adaptive behaviour that allows people to deal efficiently with the challenges of daily living (WHO).

Adaptive means that an individual is versatile in strategy and can change in circumstances that are different. Positive behaviour means that an individual is forward-looking and maybe even in situations that are difficult, can locate a ray of opportunities and hope to find solutions.

Life skills include interpersonal skills and psychosocial competencies that help individuals make informed decisions, resolve problems, think creatively and critically, communicate effectively, construct relationships that are healthy, empathize with other people, and manage the lives of theirs productively and healthily. You will find two types of abilities - all those associated with believing termed as "thinking skills"; as well as abilities associated with coping with others called "social skills". While thinking skills connect to reflection at an individual level, interpersonal skills are included by social skills and don't always depend on thinking that is logical. It's the mix of these two types of abilities which are essential for accomplishing assertive behaviour as well as negotiating effectively. "Emotional" can be regarded as a skill not only in making logical choices but also in being ready to make others decide to one 's purpose of perspective. To accomplish that, coming to terms initially with oneself is crucial. Thus, self-management is an essential skill like managing/coping with thoughts, emotions, stress and resisting peer and loved one's stress. People that are Young as advocates require social skills and both thinking for harmony building as well as advocacy on issues of matter.
