Home Economics is a big topic, and it covers a broad range of life skills and life styles. While I tend to write from the female point of view, life skills are gender neutral. Home Ec 101 is a little over three years old, the tone and topic are set and it’s time to add a new voice and perspective.  I’d like to introduce you to Brian Wilder. I’ve known Brian for a few years through various local tech and creative groups. I admire his writing, his enthusiasm, and his persistence.

Please give Brian a warm welcome to Home Ec 101.

I’ve never agreed with the notion that men are incapable of excelling in home economics. Perhaps this is because I grew up in a house full of women? All I know is that my mother always made it a point to tell me something along the lines of, “Son? No woman is ever going to want you if you don’t know how to cook, clean, and take care of yourself!”

I want to take this mantra and pass it along to men (and maybe a few women) out there who have all the right cards, but might be lacking in the execution department. Self-maintenance inherently leads to self-preservation. That should be every individual’s goal.

Sharing is caring!

  2. Welcome Brian. 😀

    My dad's mantra was that all men needed to know a minimum of three things: How to sew on buttons, how to fry an egg, and how to wash laundry.

    Hugs,

  3. One of the reasons I fell for my husband is that he knew how to clean, cook and take care of himself. In that department I got the better catch than he did. 😉

  4. Oooooooh! Thank you all for such a warm welcome! Admittedly, I make very few (if any) promises, but I will try my best to make sure you're all informed and entertained.

    "Infotainment", if you will…

    …Okay, I'll stop.

  5. Hi Brian! Those are some seriously cool shoes! ;o) I agree with Carol and Wendy…if I can fix a car and frame a wall, my guys should be able to do a load of laundry and fix dinner. Funny how that second half never seems to happen in my household…! Welcome, and thanks for stepping up to raise the bar for the guys (and gals)!

    Well said, Brian!
    I hope my husband and I instill such into our son.

    Be Welcome to Home Ec 101.
    Be Well Come and True.

  7. I agree with Brian! We started teaching our boys to cook & clean at a young age. They all love to cook. Since my hub is the primary cook at our house, my guys never thought that was unusual. Now, to work on the 'take care of yourself" part…
