Practical Skills

" Charlotte Mason advocated that a child learn handicrafts - in her day these would help support and enable the child as they grew into adulthood.  Life skills are likewise important in teaching children to be industrious"

Simply Charlotte 

Life skills this week have entailed vacuuming, drying the dishes, gathering windfall apples in the garden and helping to peel and chop them, hanging out the washing and helping dad sand a door ready for painting.
