Great way to begin a lifetime of eating wth chopsticks. Sure, it is frustrating but over time you WILL improve and if you set the table with both a fork and chopsticks and just try each time you will master the art of holding chopsticks. There are many 'How-to' videos and step by step instructions to follow. Just relax and don't force yourself or your kids. Meal time is fun and you don't have to practice only when eating Asian foods. Use at any meal and try picking up your veggies with the sticks. Make it fun - start young and grow up eating with chopsticks.
p.s. You don't have to be a kid to buy these. You're never to old to learn something new.
