    Either that’s a very deep couch, or very skinny parents.

    I have been making my own breakfast and lunch since I was 7 and for my sister and brother.
    Mom had everything I was allowed to fix within easy reach.
    Mom had to go to work.

    Oh, come on! BY their ages they should already know how to do the shopping for and make a range of easy from scratch meals like a homemade pasta sauce, or a simple mac and cheese (careful w the grater), or meat loaf w veggies, a number of salads, or even preprep stuff like fish sticks (frozen) with sides of salad, and veggies like limas (frozen and easy on stove top) and stewed tomatoes (canned). I began helping in the kitchen as a pre-schooler and then my parents had me cook almost every Friday meal from the age of eight since our family store was open late on Fridays as well as cooking most Christmas shopping season suppers.

    They also should be hemming their own clothing and doing a range of other basic chores to help the family and also help themselves.

    Yeah right… Even if you cooked full meals, when you were eight years old, that just sounds completely extreme. Even eleven-year-olds like Teena are usually not mature enough to cook without adult supervision. I started doing that when I was like fourteen, and I don’t see why I should have had to start any sooner.

    Good point about the sofa. I just assumed it was a bed, when I first saw it.
