As parents or guardians, it is our job to teach children to stand on their own two feet. Don’t do for them things that they can do for themselves.
Two-year-old children are quite capable of picking up and putting away their own toys.
Three-year-old children are quite capable of learning to tie their own shoe laces.
And don’t forget chores. Children should have chores. Their parents/guardians should not be confused as their maids and butlers.
Five-year-old children are quite capable of sweeping a kitchen floor. Get a small broom. They can help with the dishes and the laundry and any other chores their parents/guardians think appropriate and safe.
Chores help to teach responsibility.
