Back to Basics: Raising Self-Sufficient Children by Barbara Frank

Times are changing. We’re learning that making do is a lost art that we need to revive.

When money was tight for our grandparents, they could still enjoy good food and nice clothing and furniture because they knew how to make these things for themselves. They were self-sufficient.

Are you raising your children to be self-sufficient? In the uncertain days ahead, will they be able to fend for themselves? Or will they be like so many modern Americans, dependent on others to do everything for them… long as they have the money to pay for it.

Back to Basics: Raising Self-Sufficient Children explains why you should teach your children seven basic skills they’ll need in order to become self-sufficient adults:

Handling Money

In Back to Basics: Raising Self-Sufficient Children, author and homeschooling parent Barbara Frank shares her experiences of teaching these practical skills to her four children. Having scoured the Web for the very best online resources for learning the how-to's of these skills, she also shares the wealth of practical information she found, saving you the considerable time involved in searching out high-quality online resources to help you teach your children each of these practical skills. This eBook is based on a popular series of articles written for Mrs. Frank's newsletter. Readers loved the series so she put all of the articles into one eBook.

Developing these skills will prepare your children to face an uncertain future with confidence. As a bonus, it will build their self esteem in an authentic way, through the sense of accomplishment they feel as they become self-sufficient. If necessary, you can learn these skills right alongside your children.

Make sure your children become adults who know how to take care of themselves: get Back to Basics: Raising Self-Sufficient Children now!
