Try not to do too much for your kids that they can do themselves. They are going to learn to get dressed by you letting go and letting them do it. Yes, my children’s shoes end up on the wrong feet 75% of the time (you’d think they’d get it right at least half of the time), and things will go a lot slower or messier. It’s all a learning process. Moms, by nature, are helpers…or are forced to become them. It has been a learning process for me. Sometimes it’s easier to just do it for them, or we want to truly serve our families. There’s a time and a place for that, to be sure. However, you don’t want that nature to get in the way of your children gaining independence as well as learning that you are not their slave.
