Does your teen lack motivation to learn to cook?
This lack of motivation can be due to a preference for convenience foods, a lack of confidence in cooking skills, or simply not recognizing the value of cooking.
Here are some strategies and resources that might help.
Strategies and Resources
Set clear expectations.
Let them know what you expect, whether it's that they learn to cook for themselves for when they leave home or that they begin taking on some of the cooking chores for the household.
If you are expecting them to take on some of the cooking chores (because you should!), it can help to set a deadline for when that will begin. For example, "I will teach you how to cook a few meals and beginning on January 1st, you will be expected to cook family dinner every Saturday."
Make it fun!
You never know... at the very least, your kid will learn a new skill, and if your videos take off, you could begin to earn a second income together.
