FOOD + FUN: BAKING THE TEEN ANGST AWAY

The teenagers in our house are sometimes dubbed the meanagers by the little boys. Their varied moods often attempt to set the tone in the household but we encourage things like what is pictured below. Bake that angst away! We get asked often how we cope with two teenagers in the house and our strategy is pretty simple. We remind ourselves on the daily that the frontal lobe of our teenagers are functioning at a low capacity, in fact one of the lowest during the course of a human's lifespan. We also encourage positive stress relief. That most recently came in the form of this delicious white cake which turned a teen's frown upside down. Said teen also shared with everyone. Reverting to baby steps, and white cake, are our parenting tips for the day. Enjoy.
