Empowering Kids in the Kitchen
Spring Break means our daughters are fortunate to spend a lot of time with (both sets) the grandparents! It warms my heart to see the photos that my mom-in-law sent me of the girlies in the kitchen--the oldest (who has a love of desserts) making the family recipe of caramel, and the two youngest preparing a fruit salad for today's brunch. Not only do I love seeing them enjoy their time together, but I appreciate that our parents are empowering our daughters and giving them the gift of being able to do things for themselves. After all, a big part of parenting (and grandparenting) is about instilling confidence in children and teaching them to be self-reliant, independent, and feeling competent.
