"Unhappy is the man whose wife is not content with his provision, which can lead to much contention. There are no fewer than five warnings in Proverbs about the contentious wife or woman. We need to raise our daughters to joyfully accept their circumstances (as Paul wrote in Philippians 4:11–13) and to thankfully support their husband in his ability to provide, whether feast or famine.
We also need to raise our daughters to be creative thought partners that can provide their husbands with the necessary input to help him achieve his best. Creative wives can contribute mightily with thrifty homemaking, gardening, animal husbandry, and sewing skills that enable them to manage a home without adding stress to the family budget.
Finally, we should teach our daughters about business. One homeschool father I know is teaching his daughters accounting which is a wonderful skill that a wife can contribute to her husband’s business. Other useful skills include design, sales, marketing, and customer service."
