Additional Information:

J did a great job the first time he cracked an egg two weeks ago (2Y4M15D). It could just be a coincidence that he did it so well. I then showed him the video of the boy in the video cracking the egg beautifully. Ever since then, he dare not crack an egg, and want me to do it for him. However, he asks to watch the egg cracking video every weekend, and thereafter, he would ask me to crack the egg for him, after watching the video!!! Hmmmm... sometimes it may not help to show your child video of how other children perform the task.
