A while back, I was at a chinese restaurant with my son, and we were given chopsticks. I had no idea what to do with them.I was so worried that he would hurt himself trying to use them right.I ended up picking up the food that he was eating and putting it in his bowl. The waiter just asked if we were finished, so I just put the things back down.It turns out that he did just fine. He even offered to help me with my food, by moving it around and putting it together correctly (instead of putting it into my bowl).So don’t be afraid of them! If your child is old enough to use normal utensils, they are ready for chopsticks. Just give them a little time to get used to them, and they will be perfect.
How do you teach a child to use chopsticks?
There is no right or wrong way to teach your child how to use chopsticks. It is entirely up to you and your child as to how they use them. One way that may work for some families is to have one person use the chopsticks and the other person eat with a spoon. Other ways include having both people use the same set of chopsticks, or alternating who uses the chopsticks each time. Whichever way you and your child decide works best, it is important that everyone follows through so that everyone learns how to use them correctly.
What is the easiest way to use chopsticks?
The easiest way to use chopsticks is to simply hold them like you would a pencil; fingers apart, perpendicular to your arm. They are designed to be used like this as it is the most efficient way of using them. To actually eat with them, you need to first fold them back towards your palm. Then, insert them into the food you are eating and use your hand as a guide to push it towards your mouth. This will prevent you from dropping the food onto the table!
