Help from Debbie
I am a teacher and have been for over 20 years. I know that a parent's most important job is to raise children who can competently take care of themselves. Working in a Montessori school has enlightened me on the value of "Practical Life" skills. We make an effort to teach children to cook, clean, launder, garden, and organize their belongings. I hope the tips written about here will help parents bring up children who are capable of taking care of themselves.
