children in the kitchen
When you are a housewife, you will undoubtedly spend a considerable amount of time in the kitchen; after all, you are a woman. This is very essential because it eliminates the use of fast food shopping and other unnecessary spending sprees. Being a stay-at-home mom also allows her to expand her meal ideas because she is now able to cut back on convenience foods like frozen or grocery store meals.
One of the hidden gems of being a homemaker and spending a lot of time in the kitchen is the opportunity to teach others, like your children, the ins and outs of cooking.
The word “kitchen” is a 14th century word that simply means “The art or practice of cooking.” This should immediately send an alarm to housewives who pride themselves on cooking. Cooking is an art and should be approached with that in mind and taught with that in mind as well. Gone are the days when we should define cooking as a sweaty workout in your kitchen or a drudgery of some kind. Cooking should be a lovely time for you and your children to learn an art, not despised and hated as if it hurt them.
Learning the art of cooking is rewarding for both adults and children. Have you ever been associated with someone who couldn’t boil a pot of water, heat a can of vegetables on the stove, or maybe even heat a bag of popcorn in the microwave? This is a painful sight to see. But all this can be avoided if mothers teach children (including boys) that cooking is an art and should be taught as a valuable tool. Who wants their daughter to meet the man of her dreams, only to be rejected because her cooking skills were lacking? There are plenty of men in society who choose their partners based on their culinary expertise and women who love men who can pull off the kitchen. Don’t let this art go to waste!
It’s an amazing feeling to see the sparkle in your partner’s or even your children’s eyes when dinner is served and nothing is burnt or improperly prepared. Everyone in some shape, form or fashion yearns to be accepted and there is no better way to be well appreciated and accepted than through your uncanny ability to prepare impeccable dishes. This will definitely bring joy and delight to your closest and dearest friends and family. However, you must be able to identify those who only want to take advantage of you from those who do not mean well.
And don’t forget the very important message in “Each teaches one!” in other words, pass the art on to others, especially your children. So grab your sons by their pants and your daughters by their hair and drag them into the kitchen for cooking lessons whenever you get the chance. Your future depends on it!
