Why encourage the autonomy of our children?
First of all, children who begin to develop autonomy earlier have long-term academic, social and psychological benefits. Namely, autonomy promotes a sense of self-efficacy and consequently self-esteem. This will impact their motivation and perseverance. It will also develop a sense of responsibility, calmness in stressful situations and concentration. The little ones will be delighted to discover their autonomy. They will enjoy learning new skills and putting them into practice. On the other hand, your child will participate in daily tasks like any other member of the household, such as putting away toys, setting the table or giving a bowl of kibble to their pet. It's a great feeling to be able to contribute to the building, just like your older sister or brother !
How to help your child become independent?
Each child develops at his own pace. So don't worry if he's a little out of step with the others. Give them time to learn. Be patient and attentive to his progress, in order togradually increase the level of difficulty. We know that patience is the best policy. He'll get there! Our expectations as parents must be adapted to their age and abilities. If we are patient and confident, we indirectly stimulate their autonomy. By himself he will be able to measure the risk and will believe in his abilities. Try swimming! You will notice that by wearing the Plouf floating swimsuit for girls or floating swimsuit for boysyou are helping your child to become independent. Your child is protected, and doesn't realize that he or she is being helped by the floats. Being integrated inside the swimsuit, the child moves freely. And gains in motor skills and self-confidence.
Your child is just discovering the world and life. Don't assume he knows how to do the tasks. Show him how to do it. Washing hands, walking down the stairs (alternating feet), how to float in water with Splash (flapping feet and legs to move). Always stay close by to help him if he is in demand. Lead by example as often as necessary. He needs time and the goal is for him to be able to reproduce what you are doing.
Come on! Allow your child to discover his or her abilities and be proud to watch them "do it all by themselves!
