Old school

Sometimes in life you need to teach kids how to do some manual labor. I posted a funny today on my Facebook about us 'bailing hay the old way' along with some pictures. It has really caught my attention about how many kids these days do not know how to do many life skills, and definitely do not know anything about sustaining life without a grocery store. If farmers die off so will the stores. We really need to take a step back and spend some time teaching our kids some real life skills. Teach them how to plant something. Even if you can't have a garden you can plant in a bucket or pot. You can grow a great strawberry plant in a hanging pot and get some yummy treats from it. Show your kid how to pick up a broom and sweep the floor. Do some dishes the old way. Teach your kids some skills because being their maid will not do anything but make them have a hard time adjusting when they leave your home.
