Название: The Intellectual House-keeper: A Series of Practical Questions to His Daughter by a Father Автор: Seth Shaler Arnold Издательство: Andrews McMeel Publishing Год: 2014 Формат: EPUB Размер: 32 Мб Язык: английский / English
When Seth Arnold’s wife became ill, he took over management of the household until he himself became temporarily unable to perform the chores. He soon realized that although his daughters could perform various tasks, they had no idea how to take over planning and everyday maintenance of the home. He wrote The Intellectual House-keeper to help the girls plan for and anticipate the tasks necessary in order to become household managers and not just domestic servants of their parents. Through a series of questions organized by day of the week and season of the year, Arnold encourages the girls to think for themselves, develop independence, and plan in advance for home and kitchen chores. There are also sections on managing illness, wounds, furniture, and clothing.
