3. Help Your Child Learn the Daily Skills…But Don’t Help Too Much
At first, your child will need help and reminders to complete each task on the morning routine checklist. But as they start to master different tasks, try to back up and let your toddler complete the task as independently as possible.
For example, at out dentist’s suggestion we started letting our little ones brush their own teeth on the morning s they can learn. And we brush it for them at night to make sure they gets a thorough cleaning once a day.
Self-esteem and confidence comes as your child learns to do these skills independently.
4. Be Consistent
As with any routine, it takes repetition and consistency to make it a habit. Commit to enforcing the new routine each morning and it will become automatic for your child.
Build it into your morning routine to remind your child of each task and work with them until it’s habit.
