Ways To Foster Independence In Your Kids (At Any Age)
Independence is all about trust and confidence. Part of building that in our children is being honest with them. Now I don’t mean that you need to go ruin Santa, but part of being our children’s safe space is letting them know that they will always get the truth from us. If we are consistently honest (in an age appropriate way), they will know they can turn to us for feedback and advice as they explore their independence.
