Give Her Credit For Her Chores!
Take out the time to teach your high school age daughter the things she'll need to know to be a proper homemaker ~ then give her a credit in home economics toward her graduation! Take 30 minutes to an hour a couple of times a week and teach her to cook by picking out mouth-watering recipes and instructing her about proper measurements, techniques, etc. Buy a recipe file box so she can save each one she masters. Teach her to sew, crochet, scrub floors properly, and even how to fold fitted sheets. Just make sure you are there to instruct her every step of the way! Praise her for tasty meals and tidy rooms. She'll appreciate this knowledge when she becomes a mom, and she'll enjoy having this quality time with you! You may even benefit and enjoy a neater home and a break from cooking as her skills become refined!
