I’ve been pretty vocal in the past about my own lack of domestic skills when I moved out of my parents house at the age of nineteen as a brand new bride. You’d think those deficits would have made me more cognizant that I needed to work on those kinds of things with my kids, but that’s not the case. Well, in fairness, they are already ahead of where I was at their age. But, there’s more work to be done. Still – I have some tips of things you can do now (whether they’re in preschool or high school) to help teach them about meal planning and preparation.
As I share in this week’s ten minute episode, it’s great if you can start working with your kids earlier in life. That’s the best time to start. But, the second best time to start is right now! Even if they’re teenagers, it’s not too late. Use some of these ideas to help them start preparing for when they’ll be planning and making their own meals.
