Practical Life From Our Parents
Please read these great stories from our parents about practical life and how they incorporated it at home. The first story is about an experience sewing with their child. The second story is about a mom who polished her silver jewelery at home with her two children. A couple of takeaways to keep in mind (1) your child is capable of things that will continually surprise and amaze you if you let them and (2) understand what they are doing in school and let them do it at home!
