If it seems like every evening you try and prepare dinner the kids are always under your feet tripping you, then why not keep them amuse by having them help you prepare dinner? Teaching children to cook is sometimes put on the backburner but is a very important skill to learn. After all someday they will need to be able to take care of themselves. And while it may seem natural to teach your daughter to cook, it is just as important to teach that son as well. You certainly don't want them coming to your house for dinner every night after they are grown! Spending time in the kitchen is always a great way to bond with your child as well and it teaches them math and reading skills as well.
