My daughter loves to help me make dinner, and recently wanted to help chop the onions for the burgers. She is nearly 8 years old, and as much as I can’t stand to watch, she does use a big, sharp chopping knife. (i just can’t imagine how I will feel when she can drive a car!) I told her I would cut the onion, but she is an insistent little thing, and so I let her chop away. I guess some lessons need to be learned the hard way! Her eyes were stinging and the tears were flowing and she said, “we should wear goggles when chopping onions!” With a quick google search, voila! we found found onion goggles and now have no more tears in the kitchen.
