my son clay just came up to me and said (while counting on his fingers):

1. I made my bed
2. I cleaned my room
3. Turned off my light in my room
4. Brushed my teeth

So proud of himself. I said "way to go big man!"

My son is in kindergarten this year and although we try to encourage him to be independent, this is something I work on daily:-)

How are some ways you encourage independence?

With Clay (five years old):
*sets the table
*clears the table
*puts her clothes away
*cleans his own room
*rides his bike to and from school without training wheels
*picks out his clothes and dresses himself (still needs help with buttons)
*picks out books from the library weekly
*helps feed the dog

With Courtney (four years old):
*sets her place at the table
*helps with the dishes
*puts her clothes away
*picks out her own clothes and dresses herself (with some assistance...does a little better on buttons)
*picks out books from the library weekly
*helps feed the cats

Encourage and praise:-)
