Life is too busy for blogging lately; I have 3 posts started, but who knows when they will get finished? However, I really liked the theme of this blog hop, so I had to jump in, quickly.
3 Things Every Parent Should Teach Their Children:
1. How to cook
Cooking might be one of life's most important skills, in my opinion. If you can cook, you save money because you go out less, you control what goes in your body, you use your brain while working out measurements, and you are a better hostess, which enables you to practice hospitality.
If parents aren't good cooks--ask someone who is to come over and teach you some basics, or 5 easy recipes. Or, take a class with your kids. Or at least pull out a cookbook and laugh as you teach them what not to do! But parents, help your kids be handy in the kitchen (that includes clean up!). They will thank you, and so will their spouses and children.
I think it's sad how many people (not just kids!) don't use good manners. They don't hold open doors, say please and thank you, apologize for minor offenses, or write thank you notes...it's sad to me. So parents, teach your kids manners!
3. Clean up after yourself
How much cleaner would the world be, let alone my house(!), if everyone cleaned up their own mess. nuf said.
