Kids Can Cook When They Are Interested in Learning
My daughter, Nyk's, first meal at 9 years old was Ramen noodles which she had ready when I got home from work.
Within 4 years she was fixing complete meals like meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and brussel sprouts.
Was it work to teach her? Sure! Did it take time? Absolutely! Was it worth it? Uh, YEAH!
Kids Can Cook When Put on the Spot
One night I called my 3rd child, Jos who was about 12, and told him he needed to get dinner started. I walked him through step-by-step what to do. His first time EVER and he did AWESOME.
I later found my directions written word-for-word right down to the most minute details.
Kids Can Cook When It's One of Their Responsibilities
My 4th child, Harm, is the only one I've had to push to start cooking. My philosophy is that I'm teaching her to be an adult and part of that is being able to cook.
I'm still working on her.
She has in the last week expressed more of an interest though. As a matter of fact, a couple of days ago she made a beautiful omelet.
