Here’s something I wish I’d learned about much earlier in life: the power of habits – especially for kids. Why? Because when you form a habit, your brain basically goes on autopilot. You can complete tasks without having to think about them and conserve valuable brain space for other activities. And when kids go on autopilot – just doing what they need to do (washing their hands before cooking, clearing the table after a meal, prepping lunch boxes the night before school) –there’s no need for nagging anymore.
As parents, we do a lot to help our kids build habits around things like brushing teeth and getting to bed. What about kitchen habits? Are there some habits around meals and cooking that you’d like your kids to develop?
