Practical life encompasses the beauty of humble tasks involved in daily living. The lessons of practical life include simple activities children see their parents do at home such as dusting, sweeping, washing, laundry folding, cooking, etc. These activities are intriguing to the child because they see adults modeling the behavior. The practical life avenue is familiar and comforting to a child because it mirrors what they observe at home. The lessons help children coordinate their movements, provide direction, and are the beginning of learning to cooperate with life and community. Practical life skills demonstrate the importance of completing a task, teaching humility and responsibility for self, and caring for the environment. Your child’s lessons of practical life will be warmly remembered and used throughout their life.
