Best Answer

Most wealthy girls were educated in the home while the boys went to school by governesses who would teach them all that women had to know back then (as they were very shockingly sexist).

Girls would learn how to cook, clean and look after their children as well as sewing etc.

If a governess or nanny could not be afforded then the mothers would teach girls these vital life skills.
