I can do it!
In Nursery we really try to encourage the children to be as independent as possible. We tell them to “have a go” first at something, and then we gently support.
If you feel you want to encourage some independence whilst your child is at home with you, these would be some great skills to develop
Helping them learn to
The best way to teach children is to show them. You do it, let them copy (although not sure you’ll be able to get on their bike…!) Choose one skill which they’re showing interest in and work on that one, little and often. If they lose interest or it becomes too stressful, leave it for now.
Let them try, and give lots of praise for trying! This develops perseverance and resilience. If they can’t quite master it and they say “I can’t”, tell them “you can’t do it yet, but we’ll keep trying and one day you will!”
If they learn to do something new and you want to share it, let me know so we can all celebrate together,
