Boost your children's confidence and independence by teaching them to feed, dress and take care of themselves.
Life skills are tasks that children learn to take care of themselves. Examples of life skills are eating, dressing and grooming. These skills let children become more independent and confident.
Practice life skills throughout the day:
Don’t expect your baby to master these skills any time soon. She may put her pants on backward. She will probably spill more than she eats. She wants to do things for herself but will get frustrated easily. Learning these skills takes practice. Offer your support and be patient. Your child is learning skills that will last a lifetime.
