Things you've "unlearned"...or wish someone else would!

Hi everyone,

My autistic son (11) has taken an interest in cooking and is currently taking some classes at our local community college.

I'm posting to ask about kitchen methods you've learned, only to have to re-learn them again later...or things that make you cringe when you see others do them (haha)...

For example, the current thing all the children (thankfully, all--not just him) are having to "unlearn" is cracking eggs on the side of the pan, the instructors are telling them to use the countertops for that.

I figure eventually I'll have a personal chef go over knife skills with us, because I'm terrible with that and would not be able to provide any guidance and actually prefer he not watch me cut meat.

Once he learns a certain method, he'll have a terrible time changing it--and I'm waaaay more of an eater than a cooker!--so i'd like to know what to be on the lookout for ahead of time.

Thank you for your time.
