What a wonderful tool to teach our daughters to be wives and mothers. This seven year curriculum gives you daily lesson plans to follow on a variety of topics from knitting to having your own business, cooking, character, making baskets, greeting card and stamping, gardening and so much more. This books gives step by step directions so that even if you don't know how to do a specific task you will learn along with your daughters. It takes about 1 to 1 1\2 hours a day for the curriculum and projects. A valuable tool for moms and daughters. Now when will there be something similar for dads and sons???

I've been using this curriculum with my two daughters, now ages 10 and 12, for two years. If you are looking for a godly home economics curriculum that guides girls from knowing almost nothing about cooking, sewing, gardening, child-rearing, and many other subjects to being "pro" moms, this is a great choice.

Training Our Daughters to be Keepers At Home (or TODKAH, as we fondly call it), would be fun to use alongside other like-minded families in your community. You could use this along with your current 4-H curriculum, making it a biblically based 4-H club, or use it as a stand-alone.

The blessing of TODKAH is that you may pick and choose what you would like to do for each year of the program. We aren't able to spend 60-90 minutes per day on this curriculum, so we pick and choose from the various subjects.

There are additional books you will need to either purchase or check out from your local library to use with this curriculum. Keep in mind that this curriculum hasn't been updated for quite a few years, so look for updated versions of the books which are required to use alongside. For example, instead of purchasing "Square Foot Gardening", you would probably want to purchase "The New Square Foot Gardening", if gardening was one of the sections you chose to learn about that year.

Some 4-H materials are included in TODKAH, so you will find some overlap with sewing, knitting, crocheting, and the like.

The character training books each year have been wonderful! They have old-fashioned, godly values that our family desires for our children.

We've met once a week with my mom to work on the sewing projects, although we took most of the summer off. This way, we have two sewing machines going, with two adults to help.

This book is a deliberate curriculum GUIDE ('guide' is the operative word) that shows the mothers what their girls should be taught beyond the classroom. It is a great resource that will help you realize just how much we have to teach our daughters: not just academics, but also all things under the 'domestic arts' umbrella, such as cooking, nurturing, gardening, sewing, homekeeping, etc. The beauty of this book lies in its ability to help you realize that it is okay to deliberately teach your daughters the domestic arts. It helps minimize the feeling of being overwhelmed by showing you how to put it all into a manageable curriculum.

A few words of caution though. First, I purchased this book thinking that it was a how-to manual for all the domestic things I should have learned as a child but was too busy playing Nintendo to learn, but it is not. It is a pick-and-choosy how-to manual, that is, some subjects are described in great detail and others are glazed over. For example, the gardening sections are relatively well-explained. In contrast, the sewing lessons are simple in that it will simply tell you to go to XYZ pattern and learn to sew XYZ. Or in the case of learning to cook, it will tell you to go to ABC cookbook and learn to cook dish XYZ, with no explanation the basic tenets of cooking, i.e. what heat does to food, what spices go well together, different cooking methods, etc. Do you see what I mean? Sometimes the book tells you to do something you can do on your own without anyone telling you, and that will be the extent of the lesson.

You can improve the curriculum and add books or principles you feel are important for your daughter to learn.
