You know, I’m rather tired of the “too many kids dont see a parent cooking” take – then expect us to help everyone RATHER than hold those parents to account – and EITHER punish the parents by – oh – making them take parenting classes OR by teaching the kids ourselves! https://twitter.com/mom_cadet/status/1193746283284054018

  1. I was RAISED when ALL school kids HAD TO TAKE Home Ec classes! We LEARNED how to cook and clean and sew and we were TAUGHT the benefits, etc of foods!

    Civics, BTW was a REQUIRED class!

  2. We are failing these kids…but also we’re not holding the parents to account! It’s NOT WRONG to expect a damned parent – no matter their economic class/standing – to teach their kids good habits!

  3. Economic ability does NOT EVER mean lack of basic knowledge! Many people where I grew up (Southern IL: $5-$25k/yr) STILL taught their kids both right from wrong, good from bad, AND how to take care of a family with WHAT THEY HAD.
