What are some reasons why home economics should be taught?
Since this Covid-19 virus a lot of us have been cooped up in the house trying to survive. We have been cleaning, cooking, teaching, budgeting, and being good stewards to our family. Some of the things that we have been doing we haven’t done in a long time (be honest). Dining out at restaurants have been non existent. We have been exercising all of the home economics tools we have been taught. Some of use have not been taught home economics, and it is starting to show. When you think of home economics, we tend to think of cooking? Well home economics is more than just cooking. It is life skills beneficial to the home and community. It’s not just a “woman’s job”. It’s everyone’s job. We need to learn about how to maintain food and impact of our food. We need to learn about financial responsibility, what it takes to purchase a home, and credit. We need to learn how our decisions effect the environment. In my opinion I think we don’t take home economics serious, until something drastic happens.
