I Wanna Be Free to Be Me! Helping Your Child Find More Ways to Help Himself

Your four- to five-year-old child is becoming more and more capable of doing things for himself. As a result, he may ask to do more and more, even if he's not quite ready to do everything perfectly. He may want to pick out his own clothes but not take the weather into consideration. He might want to brush his own hair even though he always misses a spot in the back. As long as safety is not an issue, do your best to let him try; this is the best way for him to learn! It will also keep him from relying on you to do things that he is capable of.

Has your child achieved the following Self-Concept developmental milestones yet? If yes, check off all of the skill(s) he has already mastered to date.
