    Great list of ideas! Our problem is motivation and getting our son away from his cubes. 🙂

    Our son likes his video games. Although despite playing them a ton, he is usually pretty good when we pull him away to do something else!

    These are all great skills. I really needed that info on how to repair asphalt. I was just noticing a whole in the driveway. Maybe I can convince the teenager to do it. 🙂

    Sounds like two birds with one stone to me! 🙂

    These are some great skills for teens to have! Caulking the bath tub is one thing we’ve done recently, and it never occurred to me to pawn off the chore to one of my teen sons!

    Yes! So many of these household repair/maintenance tasks have become things we include the kids in on. Plus once you teach them you can delegate, delegate, delegate!

    What a fabulous list! My kiddos are still a bit young for these skills, but I think our 10 year can begin to slowly work through the Home Economics. You’ve saved us all a ton of time by putting these resources together. Thank you!
