My favorite part of homeschooling teenagers is all the close one on one time I get with them. I am able to teach them so many life skills by working along side them everyday. 
TLS-6-Living-ExpensesOne very important life skill that I wish I learned about when I was a teen is learning about Living Expenses. Teaching your teens about living expenses while they are still living at home will better prepare them for the future when they are on their own. It will help them to learn where money goes, and how to budget and save for everyday and emergency expenses that may come up.

Homeschool with Love has some very practical ideas and suggestions for teaching your teens about living expenses. You can find out all of her great tips and ideas HERE.
