Teens shopping and cooking– a story from another house

After reading about of our teenagers and their kitchen experiment, my friend Leah and her son were inspired to try this idea at their own house.  Here are two posts telling about their adventures so far:

If you try this with your teenagers, will you let me know?  I’d love to link to you so that others can read about your adventures too.


  1. I will have you know we are 5 days into this with are almost 14 year old daughter. She read your article and went to town on it. She has done amazing. My 16 year old son is next. I would love to link it to you when I get it all done and posted. THANK YOU for the wonderful idea to teach some life skills to our kiddos. I also read the other family you posted, story. Such a good thing your and your hubby started. We are a homeschooling family with four children. I love the good ideas you share!

  2. OK not sure that my last post made it. Please let me know.

  3. I will have you know that my almost 14 year old daughter is five days into this challange. She read your story on your blog and went to town. She is very envolved and doing an amazing job. My 16 year old son is next. Thank you so much for inspiring us to teach a life skill in a different sort of way to our children. I would love to link it to your blog when I get it all up and posted. We are super excited to follow your families progress. We also read the other family you put links up for and we are so interested. Thanks a ton. Melissa and kids
