I don't. I don't see the need to really teach them as they will sooner or later pick up the skill. Wyng is a natural at it. He surprised all of us when he used the chopsticks like a pro during his pre-school years. In fact, he may be using the correct method even better than Mom.
He doesn't like a fork for his noodles. Whenever he eats out, he will be handed a fork, much to his annoyance, as most kids don't know or don't prefer chopsticks. A pair of chopsticks will be requested as I have to explain to the hawker or food helper that he CAN use the chopsticks.
