TIPS: Developing autonomy (Independence) gives your child a sense of self-efficacy (“I can do it on my own”) which promotes self-esteem and confidence, and promotes motivation and perseverance in school. Building independence is part of a child’s social skills; self-reliance allows the child to feel they have control over their life. Give your child choices, let them help, and let them solve problems on their own.

Things you can do:

 1. Give your child chores (assist with folding clothes, washing dishes, sweeping, helping cook (prep food), clean their rooms, and take out trash

 2. Let the dress themselves/pick out own clothes

 3. Help serve at mealtime

4. Choose what they want for snack or a meal

5. Let them Read you a book instead of you reading to them
