I’ve decided that I am going to try to bond more with my kids after school and use mealtime as teaching time by prepping meals together! We will start out small with at least 2-3x a week. I want to get the kids more involved in prepping the meal and getting dinner on the table. It was getting to be too much to do by myself. Although it is easier in some ways to have no fighting or extra mess without their help, I think it will be more worth it through time as they get better and can be more and more helpful. Also, I want them to be self sufficient by the time they leave for college by cooking at least a few meals on their own.
