Training up a child involves more than just passing on academic knowledge - it also involves preparing the child for life and equipping him/her with the skills needed to function in every area. Christine Field, a featured speaker on the Focus on the Family broadcasts, has devised hundreds of fun ways to systematically teach children basic life skills by letting them do everyday stuff along with adults. Children learn by having the skills modeled for them, and done with them, until they can do them on their own.
Combining humor and insight, the author discusses fourteen areas including: time and space organization, healthy lifestyle skills, decision-making abilities, money management, spiritual habits, the art of celebrating life, getting along and resolving conflict, fixing and maintaining stuff, creativity, mental health habits, life navigation skills, people skills, responsibility in the small things, and in-the-home skills.
Whether your children toddlers or teenagers, this book will provide loads of inspiration and practical wisdom for preparing them to live fruitful, God-honoring lives in the real world.
