Child Labor?

I'm excited that Yousuf is finally at the age where he can help me with some very laborious tasks- and does so quite skillfully at that. Now I'm not talking basic chores here-like say putting dishes away or folding clothes. See, I set the bar much higher. Think: stuffing eggplants for magdoos (pickled/brined eggplants) and coring squash for mahshi... :) Good old-fashioned child labor.

Did you see the article in the Wall Street Journal about the value of putting children to work on household tasks? Apparently it turns them into better helpmates as adults.

Here is the link to the story...

Hi Laila,

there is a blog listing 500+ women political bloggers -- I don't think I saw you there, but I think you should be. The link is Perhaps it will help you spread your word.

Best wishes!

Aw, thats adorable. I was trying to send you an email earlier, but there is no link for one. I just wanted to ask you about some famous Palestinian dishes, specifically from Gaza? I'm sure you have a lot of amazing recipes and I just wanted to ask if you could share some with me :)
