To eliminate my boy playing computer and video game, I push him to play outside, give him award for spending more time outside playing. He tried, but he is bore playing by himself, he constantly come back in and forward just to earn the time to claim his award, I know he don't enjoy his outdoor adventure. Back my time, I wish to play outside everyday... well, mind you it's cold here and playing by yourself is bore!
He asked if he can help me cooking, I thought, why not, I show him using knife for chopping, and to my surprise, he did very well. I gave him a real knife to chop the food. I know, it's dangerous, but in order to learn, I must learn to trust him and it's the only way to experience.I lectured him the rules of cooking. Cleanness, Safety and Patient!
He enjoyed it very much! He even learned to stir fry.
I am jotting down his very first cooking lesson, His first time cooking meal - and he named it - HeiHei Fried Rice - at age of 7.
