  • We are teaching both of our children, both sexes.

  • YES! I have three boys and my oldest is already in the kitchen helping me and learning to cook. I think ALL people should know how to cook, regardless of gender!

  • Yup. Already started. My boys are already fixing lunch on a regular basis and they help with dinner once a week. And about once a month, dinner is all on them. They are 10 and 9. My daughter is only 4 so she only helps "cook" things that don't require actual cooking and cutting. LOL

  • Of course, how else will they cook me 7 course meals? No, seriously, self sufficiency is super important. They will not only learn to cook, but will learn to change tires!

  • It'll depend if they want to know. I'm not going to force any of them into the kitchen. But at this point in time they're all showing interest - though so far only the oldest is allowed to help out.

  • I agree girls will should be taught to do the basics with cars and learn to mow the lawn ect. I really hate the way his mother never taught him some stuff about basic life.

  • All of my children will learn to cook, and my husband agrees. My husband is a way better cook then I am too.

  • I have 2 stepdaughters and their mother wouldn't let them cook, so I taught them. They love it

    Answer by SophiaofLight at 11:59 PM on Oct. 21, 2010

  • My son is 14 and knows how to cook. He can't rely on someone else to cook for him when he moves out, so he needs to learn for himself. BOTH sexes need to learn how to cook and clean and also how to check fluids in the car, check air in tires, etc.
