Are you going to make cooking Thanksgiving dinner a teachable moment?

Posted by   + Show Post

I always try to get at least some Math and Home Ec thrown in. lol Also, I try to teach about budgeting during the shopping trips to get the food. Great life lessons 8)

 great idea julie!!

Quoting JulieBrown:

My kids know how to make potatoes, black eyed pees and green beans the way we like it.  :-)  We are vegetarian and aren't eating a turkey.

I think this thanksgiving I will give them a chance to show me what they know.  :-)

I try to let my kids watch and help me, for instance they can help with laundry and stirring recipes, and even by asking the waiters for items at restaurants. It is the little things that seem to count the most.

I agree, it is the little things.
