Homeschooling - Being Able to Add in Life Skills With Academic Skills

                    LifeSkills - what does that mean? That means teaching children to cook, clean, balance a checkbook, organize, do laundry, and a multitude of other things. Unfortunately, in most school settings, these things are not taught.

                   I was fortunate enough to teach in a private school where all these things were taught. We had a great deal of fun working on these projects. They were part of the basic curriculum. Imagine your son or daughter going to school and looking forward to his class cooking a spaghetti dinner for the rest of the teachers or fixing an elaborate breakfast feast for the teachers and learning how to serve and seat the guests!!!! These were some of the great things I taught my students.
                       The point of all of this is to let you know that if you are a homeschooler or future homeschooling parent, you can incorporate all these great things in your lessons. Teach them
to cook and make a family dinner. Give them a grocery list and a calculator and have them buy the groceries. Sign them up for a checkbook when they are 16 or so and have them practice with any money they earn. All these great new things are open to you when you homeschool. You will raise not only competent children academically, but also very adept ones at LIFE SKILLS! How awesome is that?  Who knows, through all these great things learned, your son or daughter might decide to a chef, or a banker.
               As I am sure you have noticed, I loved my job! I am currently a tutor and still love my job, even though it is a bit different. I am happy to help with any homeschooling questions or concerns, or any questions regarding easy ways to teach your child a subject. I can be reached at the email below. I would love to hear from you!

With Love,
Patt Condiotti
