Running a home is a very complex job!
It takes a lot of hard work, time, and energy!
By observing a typical homemaker's work day, we can actually find many important life skills and values.
We can try this experiment today: with the help of an adult, pick a simple chore and have fun doing it! (turning on the music I love is my secret ;-D).
Here's what you'll learn:
Organizational Skills: the combination of setting priorities, planning and coordinating the activities is one of the keys in managing the household chores.
Responsibility: take on a task and get it done to the best of your ability require dedication and determination.
Motivation, Satisfaction, Reward, Pride: knowing that your effort makes a difference, and your work is a fundamental contribution for the family and the household wellbeing is a great self-fulfillment.
Problem Solving, Creativity and Practical Skills: things don't go always as planned, so figuring out new solutions often takes a good deal of imagination and improvisation.
Focus and Patience: no matter how challenging a task is going to be, concentration and carefulness are essential to complete it with a satisfying result.
Budget control: yes, math is involved as well! Managing resources and keeping track of expenses are vital (and tricky) operations.
Clean and Order: order in the house means to have a healthy environment, and less room for mental stress, too. ;-)
Physical exercise: so active and in constant movement! You can even dance if you want!!
Let's add Generosity and Teamwork to the list: paying attention to others' needs and helping each other with little gestures will make a family a happy and invincible Team!
