Family and consumer science

Family and consumer science, or home economics, involves the study of nutrition, cooking, parenting, interior decoration, textiles, gardening, and other useful aspects of home management[?].

Keeping the home in good working order remains a demanding, time-consuming task. Today, societies are arguably underrating the skill involved in keeping the home.

Most of the best, most highly skilled homemakers never studied "family and consumer science" or even knew it by that name. Some have developed their skills at a finishing school.
