7 Little Johnstons: Amber Johnston Reveals What It's Like Without Her Older Kids at Home

Amber Johnston is embracing life as an empty nester. The 7 Little Johnstons mom is so proud that three of her adult kids are now living independently.

Amber and Trent Johnston have always been open about their desire to have their older children move out of the house as soon as possible. They believe this is the best way to teach them independence and take on responsibilities more seriously.

Now that Liz, Jonah, and Anna Johnston moved out of Trent and Amber's residence, a lot of space has been freed up around the house. One fan asked if the 7 Little Johnstons family finds their home "too big" after the three moved out.

Amber Johnston said that's not the case at all. In response, the mother of five claimed it doesn't feel like they leave the house because they still visit quite often.

"Nope. They come home often," the 7 Litle Johnstons celeb revealed. She also shared a group photo with the whole family, posing together outdoors.

Amber Johnston also opened up about how she taught her children to take their responsibilities seriously. The 7 Little Johnstons matriarch admitted that having five kids at home was challenging at first, but she eventually got used to it.

She added that her sons and daughters grew up to be responsible individuals. Amber also said her kids don't need anything in return when they help out around the house.

"Responsibility started at a very young age," Amber Johnston said. "No charts, money, or cleaning lady."

The 7 Little Johnstons star added she and Trent Johnston have always taught them "to take part and work together."
