Why Kids Recipes are so important...
"What Will Your Children Remember When They're Grown Up?"
What memories do you have? Hopefully great memories like I do. If you don't, then you are probably even more driven to make good memories for your children.
I can remember spending hours in the kitchen with Mom (and alone), cooking, talking, and making special things for my Dad J. Not that I EVER liked doing the dishes - still don't- but cooking was a time of togetherness and showing love to others.
Sometimes just thinking back on my childhood brings tears of joy and sadness--joy of having had such loving, caring parents; sadness at being separated by the miles... But anyway,
Then this will be the most important letter you will ever read.
Dear Homeschooling Mom:
My name is Laura Bankston, and I'm a homeschooling Mom of two boys and a girl. My mission in life is to train my children "in the way they should go" (Proverbs 22:6a) and to have them someday "arise up and call me blessed" (Proverbs 31:28a).
Like you, I've decided to homeschool my children. Our reasons may be different, but we have all reached the same conclusion, right? NOTHING is more important than our children.
After many years of homeschooling, I've gone from a totally structured curriculum follower to mixture of whatever works and interests my children. And most of my decisions of what to do with them is a result of watching them and talking with them.
Have you noticed the universal questions that all children have when Mom's walk into the kitchen?
This natural curiosity and desire to bond is what drove me to create an environment of cooking fun. To enjoy my children, to make great memories, and to use it as a learning experience.
From first learning to spread peanut butter, to scrambling eggs on their own; nothing gives as much instruction, love, independence, and exploration as cooking in the kitchen with their Mom!
