Simple ideas for play and activities that will help give your child confidence to be self-reliant:
Initiating My Own Play: Toddlers love to do what other people are doing. Adults can be good role models for young children on how to play independently.
Care for Animals: Toddlers have a difficult time taking on another person’s perspective. Having them help a sick stuffed animal will help them understand and to practice responsibility.
Pack a Bag VIDEO: Helps your child practice following directions and packing a bag.
Helping with Family Chores: Children can learn responsibility by having them help with simple tasks around the house
Follow a recipe: Find an easy, child-friendly, no bake recipe. Read the directions out loud, and let your child be head chef as they measure, scoop, and stir.
