The first thing you need to do when you begin teaching your children to cook, is to explain kitchen safety. This will depend on the age of the child. Children under eight should not use a knife unless you are feel they are mature enough. You should still supervise them in the beginning. Children under ten should not be using the stove without guidance either. Explain to the children what to do if any of their food catches on fire, and make sure they know where the fire extinguisher is. Better yet, teach them how to use the fire extinguisher. Have the children repeat back your safety rules before beginning.
