In the mornings of weekends my children have started to get up and help themselves in the kitchen our bedroom is right next to the kitchen I tell them they can not start to do this alot can happen. They just started about 2 weeks ago.
My son is 7 and my daughter is 5. They serve themselves cereal but I am afraid they might get into something worse, they know better but you know how kids are they are so curious. I have already told them not to do this.
Today I woke up and noticed they each had a can of coke and had some jello earlier.
I don't want to keep them in there room, but yet I need my rest and the weekend is the only time for me. My kids wake up so early. What can I do???

My 10 year old gets breakfast ready every morning while I am getting ready for work. He makes it for himself and my 5 yr old. The kids know the rules as far as what they are allowed to have. They go grocery shopping with me and we pick out things that they can make quickly and easily using either the toaster or the microwave if it has to be cooked and they always have cereal or fruit if they do not want to heat up anything. I see nothing wrong with the kids being independent. I have always done this with my kids. My 14 yr old is able to cook a complete meal and my kids made us all cookies from scratch tonight. They all love to be in the kitchen and I encourage it.
