Training Our Children to Manage a Home

Training Our Children to Manage a Home | RaisingArrows.netI am raising adults. I am sharpening arrows that will one day leave our quiver and be shot unto the ends of this earth. Every last one of them must be ready.

Part of that being ready is teaching them to manage a home for themselves. What good is it for me to do everything for them and leave them void of the skills they need to take care of their own home someday?

With that in mind, I created a Home Management Training Checklist that is FREE for all email subscribers!  If you are already a subscriber, look for the link at the bottom of this email.  If you are not a subscriber, fill in your email address below, and you’ll receive an email with the link to your Home Management Training Checklist within the hour!

Today, you can find me at Raising Homemakers writing about Training the Undomestic Daughter. This Home Management Training Checklist is a great way to teach what your sons and daughters need to know without exasperating them in the process!

  1. I’m not the only one who refers to the process as raising adults ;-) I like to think of it as the on-ramp to the interstate highway of the rest of your life. It’s cheesy, but if you don’t pick up speed as you go along, you’ll cause a wreck!

  2. Thanks for sharing this, Amy. My daughter is like you described: the official coffee maker! I’m sure glad you mentioned how not to squander her passion. Thank you!

  3. How about training the sons as well? I don’t want them to grow into the helpless slob that my husband can be! I am working on little things with them to help their future wives not hate me so much one day!

  4. This is an excellent list!!!! Wonderful way to see our young people. I think I might have to reorganize it by age, just because I’m like that ;)

  5. I also had a problem with the email. :-(. Somehow I get 2 emails everyday lol. The one at 1:30 am (est) had weird characters, and no link to be found, but the second one I got was fine. And that was around 8 am (est).

    • Every single day? Eek! I am so frustrated! The email should go out every day around 8am EST and the link was there, but for some reason it ended up getting cut off. Can you let me know if you have gotten every post twice. Thank you!
