Teach the Children Well (Part 3)

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.
