Teaching Archaic Skills

We have been developing a list of skills we want RPGBaby to learn, but we are quite aware many of them will be of little use when she grows up. For instance, RPGMom wants to teach her short hand so she will have a secret language. I want to teach her to dial a phone, just to show her what agony we used to have to suffer. Today, however, I taught her two that she will probably never need. First I had her sit in my lap and steer the car while we drove in the snow. Okay, the flake of snow that was in our driveway.

I also had her steer the car in reverse without looking at the backup camera. Who thinks that there will be cars without backup cameras in 14 years, or that we will even need to drive ourselves anywhere then? What other archaic skills should we teach?
