Housework and homeschooling. Those two words don’t always go well together. While my family does employ a chore chart that has served us for many years, there are also weeks when we’re so busy all we have time to do is “dump and run.”
Afterward, my house can look like it’s been hit by a tornado, stressing my clutter-free-loving soul.
It’s at those times that I may institute a life skills day.
This means my kids are going to get an up-close-and-personal lesson in vacuuming, dusting, laundry, and general housework.
It may sound like a homeschooling cop-out, to some folks, but I’ve found that some pretty valuable lessons can be learned during a life skills day.
