This month you may notice your child undressing herself, brushing her teeth without your help and tenderly nursing her dolls and stuffed animals. She's learning how to take care of herself -- and others -- and she'll refine this ability as she gets older. Before you know it, she'll be tying her own shoelaces, making her own breakfast and driving herself to the shops! In the meantime, it's up to you to keep a watchful eye on your child as she tests her new skills. Unless she's in danger of getting hurt, let her do things herself. Now more than ever, she's learning that practice makes perfect.
