A self sufficient child is a happy well-adjusted child. The traditional skills learning cards collection are filled with recipes and activities in the areas of home skills, urban farming, and the healing arts. Recipes include safe non toxic recipes for cleaning the home, how to instructions for basic garden and animal care, and recipes for healing salves and herbal remedies. Children love being able to help take care of things around the house when they start to see the importance of daily tasks and when they begin to feel empowered. Once I explained to my children that chores are really more of an internship for adulthood, and that one day they will need to know how to take care of themselves, they were much more cheerful about learning and helping around the house. That doesn’t mean that they NEVER complain, but when they start feeling like what they are doing is important, and they start to see it as an empowering learning experience, it helps them to be more cheerful about helping with what needs to be done.
