accustomed to the fact that they are completely dependent on mom and dad can not
understand what it means to be responsible and self-reliant. But on
as a child grows up such a skill is simply necessary, because it
is the foundation of normal adult life in society.


How to instill in the child independence and responsibility for their
actions, words, own life, we will analyze below.

adults, so it will bring him great pleasure. Not

cartoons. The main thing is the parental approach. Household chores will allow
your child to be proud of yourself, empathize, understand

much more time, because the baby will not cope with the work for the same
time, as you, and the quality of performance can expect better.

phrases with correct accents are enough for the child to give
preference for what you consider acceptable, but at the same time feeling
freedom of choice. This applies if the child is still young,

depends on from self-esteem. After all, if a person is confident in himself, his
abilities and capabilities, believes that she will be able to cope with

a sentence or question, the child will see in another light even those
actions that do not like to perform. Compare: “There is fast and
sleep! ”,“ Take away the toys, I said! ”and“ Let’s eat fast and
will go to bed under an interesting fairy tale “,” Dear, you could not
remove the toys, otherwise we can step in and break them. ” Child
