This time, it wasn’t all play. We decided to make the kids just sit down quietly and eat some yogurt. Trying to teach them how to be independent? That was the goal!
We sat the girls on chairs and had them eat on the table by themselves. Though one cup of yogurt took 30 minutes to eat, it was a learning experience for them to act like big girls without having to run after them to feed them. Of course, we had to come up with a game and prizes for them to finish their food! But we’re getting there, just a little more practice of eating by themselves 🙂
Try it with your toddlers. It’s always easier when they’re with other kids so it’s more fun for them!
