because everything starts with a seed…..
This could be the ideal time, now that we are spending more time at home with our families again, to teach life skills to our children!
The key to this, as in most teaching, is to make it fun and interesting.
But what is age appropriate? Use the chart below as a guide.
Some skills are simple – you copy your mom or dad as they comb their hair and you giggle at yourself in the mirror!
Some skills, like tying shoe laces, need muscle coordination; fine motor skills need to be developed.
This guide is just that – a guide. Children will always learn at different rates. Celebrate the wins and encourage the efforts.
Remember everyone blooms at their own special pace and their own special time…
