Any tomatoes, potatoes, etc. should be washed, or not at all. Smile! Give this task to the children. Have a small post on which the child can stand to reach the faucet. Open the faucet just a little bit. Tell the child that if they open the tap too much, then they will have to withdraw their permission to wash the fruit and vegetables. They would never want permission to be taken away from them.

If the children want to be around you in the kitchen, don't forbid them. Yes, don't pamper the one who takes it in your lap. Do something with love.


A child is a child after all. He will make a mess. It will create more dirt in an attempt to contain the dirt. Acknowledge his effort. Don't say, "It's already dirty, let me do it myself, I'll do it six times as soon as you do it."
