That's great! It gives us a good idea where to go next. I 'suspect' the cooking program gave proper warnings about using a knife ... parent's
permission, how to cut away from yourself perhaps, how to hold it firmly and probably mentioned to be "careful or you might cut yourself".
Dreams operate on many levels simultaneously. It's like a computer processor, multi-tasking in the background. If it were possible for two people
to have an identical dream ... it would actually have different meaning and purpose to each of them. An answer appropriate for one person, may be

easily by a negative environment such as people yelling. So, tone it 'down' and not 'up' when giving her 'warnings'.
1. Teach her the proper way to walk with scissors. Mention to always walk not run with any pointed object. Give her some paper, bright colored

2. Go over her television cooking lesson about knives. What recipe did they make? Give her a sturdy plastic knife to use and make the recipe they
were cooking. OR better yet, let her choose a recipe of her favorite foods. Eat the food with her as soon as it is done to end the lesson on a

I hope that helps! Good luck with your little angel there!
