Take Time for Training
Training is an important part of teaching children life skills. Don't expect children to know what to do without step by step training (this goes for ALL ages.) What do you mean by clean?
1) Kindly explain the task as you perform it, while your child watches.
2) Do the task together
3) Have your child do it by herself while you supervise.
4) When she feels ready let her perform the task on her own
Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you at school soon!
