    Your kids may be involved in sports, music lessons, debate, and various other clubs, not to mention all of their schooling, but are they learning the most important skills? That is, have they mastered life skills - the ones they will need for their future when they leave your home and become independent adults? By Christine M. Field, this practical guide helps you incorporate life skill training into everyday life so you don't have to make room for yet another activity. Feeling as though she was not "life trained" when she was a child and wanting to prepare her own children for their futures, she decided to write this book to help all parents with this important task. There are fourteen chapters, each focusing on a different skill. Topics covered included responsibility, people skills, in the home skills, life navigation, time organization, space organization, maintaining and fixing things around the house, managing money, healthy grooming habits, using your brain, forming good spiritual habits, making decisions, creativity, and finding joy in everyday life. The personable, down-to-earth tone of the book makes it an enjoyable read for parents who want some useful ideas and knowledgeable help. The chapters are filled with valuable information, a variety of suggestions, relevant charts (both offering information such as the chart which portrays age appropriate chores and ones providing you with models you may want to utilize in your home like clothing records to keep track of everyone's wardrobes), and lots of encouragement. Each chapter concludes with a "Life Skills Checklist" with several points for you to read through so you can determine if you've successfully met the goals of the chapter. This is a wonderful resource encompassing the truly important life skills. 332 pages. - Melissa

    The goal is to make the home inviting where its residents are comfortable and others feel welcome. The Girl's Complete Guide is thorough and has a lovely orientation the comfort of others and the model of the Proverbs 31 woman. The starting point is order and cleanliness; the methodology is clear instruction, reproducible checklists, and practice. Each color-coded section bathrooms, kitchen, living area, pantry, hospitality, bedrooms, closets, and yards/porches is covered in a similar fashion. A checklist (certificate of mastery) states what needs to be learned and accomplished and is followed by a listing of daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal tasks. These are then discussed with instruction and examples (interspersed with creative projects), and include insights from Aunt Sophie, the girls' homemaking mentor. Illustrations throughout are delightfully old-fashioned and entertaining snippets from vintage homemaking books (circa 1920s) are included (i.e. if the house has an indoor bathroom, then . . . . .). Well-organized and attractive, this is a guide for the serious homemaker-in-training, but not as overwhelming and all-encompassing as some. I'd be inclined to approach it as an on-going Life Skills class with the goal of mastering one or two areas each year while incorporating some of the basic skills into daily routines. If you're like me, you'll probably find that your ideas of housekeeping have been greatly expanded. 170 pgs, sc.~ Janice
