Tip: Feeding And Serving Oneself

Many parents and grandparents put off teaching feeding and serving oneself and pouring milk and drinks because it seems easier – with less mess to clean up. However, if you do not allow the child to do it, they will not develop the necessary hand eye coordination to execute these tasks properly. You have to start sometime – now is best. Again, consult with the parents so that the child has the same expectation at home and at your place. Make picture schedule, also make video of the child doing it, and show it to the child and then the parents.
