Children become more independent as they learn to do things for themselves. Self-help skills are basic life skills needed for daily living. Children become more independent as they learn to do things for themselves, solve problems, and experience success. Self-help skills are learned at a young age and continue to be used throughout life. Children gain an understanding of life skills by imitating others and through hands-on exploration and practice. Some common self-help skills have to do with dressing, eating, and grooming.
Help children learn and reinforce self-help skills through hands-on games and activities that teach them time & money, or encourage them to develop healthy eating habits.
