  2. 2. While there are many resources available to help children learn how to care for themselves, parents should strive to integrate certain lessons into their lives so they can help their children grow and spend more quality time with them. When teaching teenagers how to cook, it is important to acknowledge their abilities and limitations without stepping on their toes or being too lenient. Cooperation and teamwork in the kitchen are key. AS PARENTS, PART OF THE RESPONSIBILITY OF RAISING CHILDREN IS ENSURING THEY ARE CAPABLE OF SURVIVING ON THEIR OWN.
  3. 3. GROCERY STORE NAVIGATION You should endeavor to teach teens how to plan meals, save money, and choose quality items. When it comes to picking fresh produce, learning how to compare items for ripeness will be essential to limit unnecessary waste. Much of grocery shopping can be boiled down to common sense, but being clear and specific on joint trips to the store will help prepare your child for their own independent grocery shopping experiences.
  4. 4. RECIPE READING Written recipes are a great way to introduce your child to cooking. Learning how to read the instructions, measurements, and cooking methods will prepare your teen for more difficult and even original dishes. Starting with simple recipes can better prepare your teen for independence. Though knowing how to cook an egg, boil pasta, or chop vegetables won’t necessarily make them an expert in the kitchen, these basic skills will help ensure they can make simple meals on their own.
  5. 5. HANDLING RAW MEAT Food safety practices are among the most important things you should teach your children, so make sure you address additional aspects such as expiration dates, food temperatures, and more. Recognizing the dangers of cross- contamination and reducing the risk of foodborne bacterial diseases like E. coli and salmonella is essential for safety in the kitchen.
