DO YOU FIND YOURSELF HELPING YOUR CHILDREN IMMEDIATELY WHEN YOU SEE THEM STRUGGLING WITH SOMETHING? This is something which I am so guilty of. Sharing a recent incident, I was trying to help my 2 year old put on a dress but she insisted with great willpower that she wants to wear it on by herself without any help. I relented and watched her struggled to wear her dress. First, her head went into the hole meant for her hand and she wanted to squeeze her big head into the armhole. She struggled for a while, got frustrated but continue to resist any help. I encouraged her by guiding her where her head and arms should go. With my guidance, she finally managed to figure out how to put on the dress by herself! I will always remember her priceless expression and big "YAY"!

Here are just some of the simple day to day activities that you can expose your child to!
