Encourage your child to increase their independence by setting up things in their routine that they can understand on their own, reach on their own and achieve on their own. For example, during the morning/evening routine; help them understand by setting up a visual schedule posted in the bathroom. Have all the items necessary to achieve the desired tasks in reachable distance such as the toothbrush, hairbrush, facecloth and clothing in easy to reach areas so they can do it all on their own. Next, go through the routines with your child explaining all the expectations and how to achieve them. We assume that kids just know what to do but that's not always the case. With some clear boundaries and expectations, it can create more success and independence! Have Fun!
