“One evening, my child came up to me and asked, “Daddy, can I chop your vegetable scraps?”
That one question opened my eyes to all the possibilities that exist for me – and for you – when we embrace the connecting power of cooking and eating together with our children.”–Chef Kibby
The Wednesdays With Watson Podcast is proud to bring Chef Kibby to the podcast. Chef Kibby and his wife are foster parents as well as parents to their biological children. Like many of us, Chef Kibby faced losing his livelihood when the Covid 19 Pandemic swept the globe.
It started with one question, and that question led him to evaluate the need behind that request, and thus was born his new passion of connecting with children in the kitchen.
What are the felt needs behind a request from our children, regardless of trauma status? Why is it important to connect with them in the first place on practical levels–levels that we've not seen pre pandemic? Now more than every our children need us, and we need them. This episode is rich with information that will help you connect with your kids over one of the very few common human needs–food. Listen as he tells his journey of this ministry and how he strongly encourages parents to get in the kitchen with their children, and you don't have to be a chef.
Enjoy this episode as we near the end of our season on Trauma, Spaces, Places, and Aces. This one is definitely an ACE!
