Self Help Skills for Kids
The excitement of preparing your child for preschool or junior kindergarten usually involves teaching them their colours, counting, learning their ABC’s and perhaps printing their names. Skills that are certainly important, however, some of the most important skills you can teach them are self-help skills: dressing themselves, independence in the bathroom, self-feeding and self-care. These are the skills that will allow them to become a little more independent, which is always a great help when starting school.
As previous child care providers, educational assistants in the school system and moms ourselves, we have tons of tips to help you teach your child the how to’s.
