Log in to Reply Gordon Ramsay Log in to Reply Their parents or guardian. Who else? Log in to Reply Whoever can. This isn’t the 1950’s, most households require two full time working parents these days, and even then it’s a struggle. I’d rather pay taxes for teaching kids valuable life skills, than pay taxes to build more weapons. Log in to Reply Family first and foremost, but I am also of the mind that home ec should be required learning, especially through high school. Log in to Reply Schools should have HomeEc like when I was a kid. Log in to Reply Their parents or whoever wants to pay for culinary school Log in to Reply The parents or grandparents. Log in to Reply I learned from parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles and cousins. I also took a Home Economics class in school that taught some cooking basics Log in to Reply Parents grandparents, anyone who knows how to cook. My dad and my grandma taught me the most about cooking. Log in to Reply we the parents Log in to Reply Family. My cousin taught me how to make sunny-side eggs, toast, and breakfast sausages when he said, “dude, pay attention. One day you’ll make breakfast for some girl.” Log in to Reply Parents. Whoever says teachers should, you better be paying them to babysit alongside their teaching salary too Log in to Reply Adults Log in to Reply Both their parents and education system I think. Nowadays both boys and girls should be taught equally about domestic tasks, so they can handle daily life by themselves when they reach adult age. Also I’m a strong believer that domestic finances and planning should be taught at secondary degree. Any bachelor graduate should leave school knowing about basic laws and taxes handling.

Best leave it to the professionals. Log in to Reply The parents Log in to Reply In an ideal situation, parents. Some situations aren’t ideal, so cooking/life skills/home ec classes *that don’t charge for materials* should be available at school. And of course, all the wonderful self-teaching materials like cookbooks and YouTube tutorials should remain out there too. Log in to Reply In all fairness – this is one of the cool things the internet can do if we used it more for education and empowerment and less for cat videos and porn. Log in to Reply Parents Log in to Reply They should learn it as our ancestors did We airdrop them into a desolate kitchen environment in the wilderness and force them to fend for themselves Log in to Reply Adolf Hitler. He will thoroughly teach them to use the oven. Log in to Reply Why is this even a question?? The obvious answer is the parents. Who else would it be?? Log in to Reply Parents! Parents should also teach their children how to keep house, create and stick to a budget, personal accountability and to respect boundaries. Log in to Reply Professionally school, otherwise parents Log in to Reply Those who create them. Log in to Reply YouTube Log in to Reply Yeah, honestly I’m from Uruguay and I’m not that familiar about until which point exactly you guys have free education available. It’s a sad state actually, since everyone should be allowed to have a good quality education and not be limited on its professional future by its financial condition. Log in to Reply Parents at the beginning and themselves after that Log in to Reply Either learn by themselves, or if their care-takers are loving enough to teach them (including parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, or siblings, the range is wide). Some schools and clubs also provide cooking classes and lessons. Log in to Reply If you can afford him, then Bear Grylls Log in to Reply Parents. Just teach your kids the basics. Like how to prepare basic meals, cook rice, pasta and potatoes. Enough so they can survive on their own. And you can start young with small things like making a sandwich or bake cupcakes. When they are pre-teens you can start with them cutting vegetables and small meals, like eggs and grilled cheese. Later you can make them cook dinner one night per week. Let them plan the meal, buy it (with their parents money) and let them cook it. When they are adults they can pretty much cook whatever they want. I had to learn my boyfriend how to cook. He was 26 when we got our first house, his parents were lazy and neglecting. Log in to Reply Parents-…….a friend and her 3 year old daughter would throw flour and dough at each other while baking. That 3 year old will have a happy memory for life, something to reach for when things get tough. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
