back in the day children cooked meals around an open fire more than now. I wouldnt let them until you can trust them. Let them prove to you first that they could cook something a little more difficult under your supervision and see if they can earn the priviledge to do that
well, I cook now, as I have for almost 2 years now without adult supervision, and I'm 13. Now cook when I'm home alone, and when I babysit for families :)
but really, it depends on the kid like ty said, some kids are just really not mature or responsible.
I dont think there's a specific age. It depends on the maturity of the kid and the circumstances. Where I come from you've got 9 year olds taking care of babies. That would be completely unacceptable here.
I don't think there is a certain age. They should be allowed to cook without supervision when they have learned to cook with supervision first...and seem to have no problems with cooking anymore.
Up until the parent feels he/she is responsible or until the child feels responsible nd knows he/she is, or the age may be...about 11 or 12 +
14 or 15 up maybe, if they know what their doing
Ive cooked alone since i was in grade two
My oldest does and he is 12.
