Grandparents could probably come up with a very long list of all the things modern kids (and parents) can't do that they just got on with doing.

Some recent research from 2018:

"The study showed that those aged between 18 and 26 confessed to struggle to get to grips with some of these easier tasks. From the 2000 participants: 40% could not confidentially sew on a button, 76% cannot change a tyre, 33% cannot boil an egg, 77% cannot shorten a hem, 50% cannot confidentially Iron a shirt and 37% could not make a cake without a recipe. 81% of these millennials admit to googling how to do basic jobs and 62% admit to calling parents for help!"

Alice in Wonderland Face Palm Facepalm | IMAGINE WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE IN YEARS TO COME | image tagged in alice in wonderland face palm facepalm | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
As a millennial I have no trouble believing those stats. I had roommates in college who couldn't work the washing machine, cooker, change a light bulb, fuse, etc. I am able to do all of the things you listed. Not that I'm bragging, those are basic life skills that everyone should have. I think it's more to do with young people expecting other people to do everything for them rather than them not being able to do those things.
