Helping Grandpa

Amish farmers

Cute as it looks, this photo shows much more than a grandson riding along as his grandfather encourages a team of workhorses across a farm field. This exemplifies the hands-on part of an Amish education. Children learn at a young age how the work gets done, whether on a farm or in a shop or the house. It is practical, productive learning at its finest.

“Helping Grandpa” is my Photo of the Week.

    The Amish have much to teach us about rearing children if people would pay attention and observe. However, even they are feeling the pressures of our culture. Here in our area of Central KY my husband has dealings with an Amish man who runs a sawmill, and the Amish man said he is having a hard time keeping employees (Amish boys). We are in trouble if the Amish boys don’t want to work! 🙂
