Great question!!!! My daughter is 4 and LOVES helping in the kitchen. She has always listened to my directions about cooking and is a great big help with everything, but I haven't let her at the stove yet. I just don't feel comfortable. But I have pondered this question over and over as too when is a good time to introduce her to it.
Thanks for posting. I am going to watch the answers on this one and see what other moms and dads are doing!
