Tips for Raising an Independent Child

August 3, 2010
Times Observer

BY JULIE GARSTECKI, SUPERVISOR AT SUNY FREDONIA

There are things they don’t teach you in child birthing classes: How to have a complete thought, the added time and effort it takes to leave the house, how to clean the house, make a meal, or eat a meal while it was still hot. Creating independent children takes a combination of effort (teaching and practicing the routines) and strategy (reorganizing the pantry), but it is possible to do this with even very young children. After following some of these tips you might just find yourself arriving somewhere on time, or better yet, finishing your coffee before it gets cold.
