by Penelope Hoyt

Parenting isn’t easy.

Neither is learning how to help your kids grow up.

One of the most valuable things a parent can do is to help their child learn about chores. Chores aren’t just about a child having to do something boring. Teaching your child about chores means instilling a sense of responsibility within your child, it means helping your child learn how to become more independent, and it means guiding your child toward an adulthood of self-sufficiency.

Natural Homemade Cleaners :The Ultimate Guide - Over 30 Green & Eco Friendly Solutions

by Susan Hewsten and Encore Books

** The Ultimate Natural Homemade Cleaning Guide **

Replacing traditional cleaning products with green or natural products has both health and environmental benefits. Natural cleaners contain few or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Green cleaning powerhouses such as vinegar, baking soda and borax are inexpensive and easy to come b...

Even though this is still not my most favorite thing, I find it a breeze compared to what it used to be like.
