How do other young-adults learn to pay bills?

My father thinks his only responsibility towards

me is to pay the bills; and ignores the rest of our 

family most of the time. I still don't know how to 

develop good work-habits, pay bills or rent on my 

own. Isn't that what parents are supposed to do? 

To teach you these things? I asked him, and he 

said you're supposed to learn those things at school. 

Well, they didn't teach us and 

never held classes covering that.   

Do I have a right to be angry? How 

am I supposed to learn these things? 

Are there books at the library? Ask friends?  

Advice Please.

    There are now "adulting classes" offered all over the place to take up the slack where helicopter parents failed their children.

    Your adult life and bills are like high school and homework. You keep track of what is wanted, when, and do it (pay, respond, sign up, show up, etc). Join a bank or credit union, get a savings and checking account, a debit card, a credit card, and order some paper checks. Pay by check to have proof (rent, buying a used car, mailing in a bill, loaning a friend money, repaying a friend or relative, etc). You can do it !!!

    You don't need a class. Watch what your father does and imitate him.

    Usually it happens when they come home and find their electricity shut off, and they can't charge their phones, which are next in line to be shut off.

    The best way to learn is to f*ck up. Your brain will never forget a bad moment. Move out and try renting. You’ll most likely mess up but that’s how you’ll learn, and it’s the best way.
