Children need to be given duties at home. Even if you have a domestic helper, you should assign your child something to do or to help with.
Teach them how to make Ice Cream (without using the Ice Cream maker)
Make their hands dirty.
Their job can be as simple as taking a scissors and cut the home made macaroni.
Instead of letting them watch TV or play games by themselves.
Make them do work.
Hey, see what Kay Kay has prepared for the playdate dinner.
This is the great age to assign them to do things. Even playdates can help out.
Simple task like decorating the CNY decors.
This is a job for children. Not a job for domestic helper.
Kids will be happy to decorating the house.
They feel a strong sense of ownership of our home.
The make the home looks lively.
At the end of the day, lazy parents will clap their hands and say Thank You!
During weekend. It will be this fellow job to prepare breakfast.
See he just wake up. His hair still standing.
Don’t be afraid to make him fry eggs.
It is the most easy task. You know after he mastered this skill. He can cook his lunch next time. hahahaha
Cook rice, cook egg, put a bit of soya sauce, and that’s it.
Of course, thru out the time, he will learn more dishes.
This is the Sunny Side Up he make for all of us.
And then, he will set the table and call all of us to come and eat.
Although it is simple meal.
But this meal is prepared by my son.
And he is only 10 years old.
This week. My Sunday breakfast. Of course, Cucumber not cut by him. He still need some time to handle knife.
This was last week one. With home grown cabbage.
Three weeks ago. He tries his first ever scramble egg.
This is his very first attempt. Which is 3 weeks ago too.
Some times ago, he also prepare these. We prepare and cut the beef for him he just cook with everything in it. Watch the fire, and that’s it.
He felt so proud.
(The beef curry is a bit hard, I think control of fire not so accurate. But still edible. Next day, mommy cook another 1 hour to make the meet soft)
(Stif fry beef is nice)
(Tofu is simple)
Don’t forget Monkey see Monkey do.
So, the young one also take parts in some activities.
He make these cookies. As you can see, not all cookie the same size.
And yes, sometimes there are injury happen.
Like last week, Jay got oil burnt on his fingers.
But hey, that’s cooking. So, what is cooking if you don’t burnt your hand some time. hahahaha
this will only make the kids more careful next time handling cooking.
