I am not blaming my lack of knowledge on my child hood or on my parents but it would have helped greatly to have been taught few things before I set out on my own. I got married when I was 18 years old. At the time I felt as if I were ready to tackle the world but looking back now I see that I was nothing more than a young, immature child that had no idea of how to really make it in this world. I am sure there were times when my mother may have attempted to teach me some sort of homemaking skill but it wasn't enough for me to catch on to. It is quite possible that she was met with a teenager who thought she already knew it all and didn't need to be taught but either way I was ill prepared to be a wife, mother and homemaker. Homemaking has to be taught. It is not a job that just comes naturally. Would you like to know about the skills I Wish I had known? Head on over to the other Jennifer's blog A Heart For THE Home where I am contributing today to find out what they are.
