I feel like I'm missing the boat on her current passion for science, but I find all the set up tedious and time consuming and I already do all the other subjects with the kids and I just have no desire to repeat the experiments I did thirty years ago. Dd is almost 10 btw, so certainly old enough to read and follow instructions. I don't mind being there to give some guidance, but I'm tired of doing the work for her. It's the same when she wants to cook or bake, I've showed her how to do various things required in baking, for example, yet she still really wants me to do all the work for her rather than grabbing a cookbook and making a chosen recipe.
How can I encourage more self starting?
