Now there are stories of women getting arrested because her children were playing on the sidewalk in front of her home without adult supervision. Someone really thought she was endangering her children and called the police. A women lets her kids play at the park alone and it's on her criminal record.
I really try to encourage Cain to do things by himself. He gets dressed by himself. He can put his shoes, coat,hat, etc. on by himself. He can help unload the dishwasher, help put laundry in the washer/dryer. He helps me take the trash out. I want him to grow up and believe he can do things not that he needs me to be there watching over him every second.
Please don't think I am talking about letting my 3 year old go play near the street by himself or something like that because obviously! but letting him do age appropriate things by himself is good for him and good for me.
I need help getting my sock on...
