Dear Mary:  
Thank you for your article. I have found, that if you are teaching a child who is still young enough to want to help, that skills need to be practiced just about daily. Also, it needs to be introduced in little bits, so it doesn't tax their abilities or desire to learn. I have just started cooking with my 4 and 1/2 year old. He is chopping some things with a butter knife and measuring some ingredients. It also helps if they have their own tools. Paula Deene has a nice set of cooking tools for kids. Finally, this is a long-term effort so be patient.
