"I CAN DO IT MYSELF"
Let your kids do things on their own before you think they are ready. I have made many assumptions with my 4-year-olds over the years that they were not ready for the next thing. I guess a lot of the time it’s just easier and faster to do it myself—and, I know it will get done the right way. I have had to force myself to step back and let it play out. More often than not, I am shocked by their abilities. It starts when you give your baby the spoon and the bowl for the first time. It won’t end pretty, but the sense of accomplishment you see on his face is worth it.
