Many homeschoolers, like myself, consider cooking, cleaning, housekeeping apart of schooling, but more importantly life skills. I don't care if it's boy or girl my kids will know basic housekeeping and cooking skills.
Today I had my daughter, 13, sharpen up on her cooking skills by prepping the chicken for tonight's dinner. It went something like this after I gave her some basic instructions and left her to be.
Daughter: Do we still have some surgical gloves?
Me: Why do you need surgical gloves?
Daughter: I'm not sticking my bare hands up a chicken butt! Gross!
I then told her where to find the gloves and went about my business and let her be. After a little while I get.... "Mom, should I massage the chicken before putting seasoning on it?"
I already laughing over the whole glove thing just sighed and told her if she wanted to that's fine. Are your kids doing any cooking yet? Do they not want to touch raw meat? How is teaching them life skills going?
