"Sniff... sniff, sniff." Ahhh, the smell of fresh baked bread. There's nothing like it. Have your children ever experienced it?

Probably not.

This sad indictment for today’s children falls on the shoulders of adults. Many of today’s millennials can’t do basic chores and tasks without a Youtube video showing them how.
