My son is 6 and still requests all his meals, beverages and snacks. He is reminded that he is able to do most of these tasks without 100% of my help but I’m not sure if I’m expecting too much? Is making his own breakfast, i.e. toast or Milo, appropriate? What age did you stop being a full time chef in the kitchen and allow your children more freedom and responsibility for their own meals? I still make food for his younger siblings, so I also don’t want him to feel like I’m being unfair either by making him think of what he wants to eat and helping get it together.
