A High School Class that Should be Mandatory - Home Economics & Ettiqutte

Home Economics sewing

Home Economics & Ettiquette. I know this is not new, but it is apparent that it is not being taught in schools. Sure, parents need to do their part in teaching their childen how to take care of their homes, cook, and clean, but the children can use supplemental education in school.Back in the days, girls learned how to sew, and cook. Balance a checkbook. But these days, everything is practically done for you, or you hire someone to do it.

Ettiquette is just necessary because a lot of children are deficient in manners, and I've seen so many parents who seem incapable of teaching their children how to act in public. Because many families, mine included, do not spend enough time at the dinner table, some children do not know how to conduct themselves. They don't know how to say "please," "thank you," or "excuse me." Many children do not learn how to even properly eat. With fork and knives! Basic manners, and politeness, are lost to many children in this generation.
