But how do you send son/daughter to another country with no basic skills at all. As in didn't know how to boil a egg. They were blessed that dd and her friends took them under their wings and taught them. They would go shopping as a group so they understood what ingredients they needed and where to get them and went home and cooked together and lent them their stuff to cook with until they could get some of there own. I just don't understand it at all.

I'm teaching O, J and Gabe simple things now.
O and J take it in turns to cook on Saturday and Sunday and Gabriel cooks with me during the week.

Like PP said they help me since they were old enough to sit on the bench and it's just kind of progressed. Now my daughters (8 & 9) can fry eggs, make toast, cook 2min noodles and have made most of a meal DD1 learnt at school with a little help from me. They also chop veggies for dinner most nights or make the salad (they make a GREAT salad!). DD1 also made a packet cake in the holidays which she was very chuffed with- I helped with the oven though.

DD is 7 and helps occasionally, but that kid is clumsy and has no common sense, so there's no way in hell I could let her to make a meal anytime soon. She would cut off fingers, burn her hands and spill stuff everywhere. Kinda like me really...
I've only just let her make toast on her own.

DS is 2 and helps me cook most nights. He puts things in bowls / pots for me, he stirs and gets things from the fridge. He also loves baking with me
I moved out of home at 18 and had absolutely no idea how to cook. Now at 29 i think i am pretty good and love it! I taught myself with a lot a trial and error but i became pretty good rather quickly. Its just something i love to do.
DS wont be going out into the world not being able to cook
