How to Help Create Independent Children — 12 Comments

  1. It’s so important to teach your children to be their own advocate — and to stand on their own two feet. We won’t always be there, and sometimes we might not know the full story. Letting them figure things out on their own can help them learn.

  2. It’s good to make them practice doing independent stuff so they can build up the routine for it. Great tips and my kids are doing well with independence as well.

  3. I think it is great to teach your kids independence! Life skills they will need in life and if we coddle them, they will never learn!

  4. I’m guilty of having sheltered my son! Loved your post! We’re still working on helping him be more independent!

  5. Raising independent children is so important. It will really help them so much in their adult lives!

  6. Nice post and really enjoy reading this, it is so important to teach our kids to be independent in an early age so that they will not have a hard time doing a simple chores when they get older.

  7. This is such a great post!! Really helpful! I think teaching kids to be independent is an essential part of parenting.

  8. I must admit that I was late in teaching my children to be independent and with my youngest I am still struggling with some things. But I do agree with everything that you have stated. If they don’t learn to be independent while they still live at home they are going to struggle out on their own.

  9. Getting up at the same time most of the times during the year is one of the best ways to allow our kiddos to grow up and be responsible. I like all the suggestions in the post, though.

  10. I’m a little bit of a helicopter mom, but in a good way haha. My kids are 7 and 5 and they definitely help with the laundry. I still supervise putting the detergent in the washer but they totally do the work and they actually enjoy it too!

  11. I love thia ao muxh. It’s so important to teach our kids how to live in the world without us. It’s nice to be needed when they’re young, but they need to be able to navigage life, no matter what it brings, when they’re adults.

How do these ideas work in your world?
