Teach a Child to Cook

As a writer nothing brightens my day more than seeing my name in a byline. Narcissistic? Maybe a little, but for the most part I'm just glad my work is appreciated and useful to someone.

A recent article of mine can be found in the food section of the July/August 2017 issue of Christian Woman magazine. The editor was generous and gave me three whole pages for "Teach a Child to Cook".

Teaching a child to cook is an easy way to help develop self-esteem along with essential life skills.  I believe parents do their children a disservice for many reasons when they don't allow kids in the kitchen. 

If you've never let your child help out with meal preparation, I hope this article will persuade you to give it a try. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject.   



  1. I SO agree Anita! I think many of us bloggers had moms who allowed us time in the kitchen to help us realize, not only how essential these skills can be, but how fun and creative too. Congrats on being featured in Christian Woman magazine - WOW! Keep on keepin on!!

  2. It's a great to bond with your child or grandchild! You are an awesome role model!
