If you often find yourself in the kitchen by yourself in the evening preparing the family meal, then you should consider whether this is best for everyone. It may seem simpler, but it could be much better to involve the kids with this daily chore, and here are some reasons why.
It Will Help Your Workload
It may seem like it will be quicker and easier to just do it all yourself, and to begin with, this may be true. But once they get the hang of it and you all work out a good rhythm, then this will help alleviate some of your daily workload.
It Will Teach Them Skills
There are so many useful skills to be learned within the kitchen, and the younger they start the better they will be. A lot of the skills used in cooking can be applied outside of the kitchen too, such as following instructions, and multi-tasking.
They Will be Better Prepared
So often when kids haven’t helped much with cooking, this can cause major issues when they eventually move out. Learning how to prepare and cook healthy balanced meals will ensure they don’t live off pot noodles.
