Most of what I really need to know about life
I learned in Family and Consumer Sciences
Choose foods from the food pyramid.
Avoid fats and sweets.
Keep food safe.
Budget your money wisely.
Learn to balance work with family.
Learn to get along with others…
Learn to like yourself!
Think of what a better world it would be
if we were all equipped with life skills
taught in Family and Consumer Sciences…
If we all had strong families…
Had balanced budgets…
Could resolve conflict without violence.
It’s still true, no matter how old you are…
Or what career you’ve chosen…
It’s still best to go out into the world
equipped with basic life skills.
