Tips for Raising an Independent Batang May Laban
To help parents teach their preschoolers how to become more independent/ how to give them the confidence to do things on their own.
Hello mommies! 3+ na sila! Parang kahapon lang, batang bata pa sila. Pero ngayon big boy o big girl na ang iyong anak! Mahirap talaga mag let go, noh? But soon they’ll be off to school and will need to be more independent. So make sure to teach them about independence while they’re still young.
Here are some small ways you can teach your child to be more independent!
Giving your child small activities to do can be a good way to teach them to be more independent.1 For example, even a 3-year-old can already put away their own toys! If your child is older, you can make them put clean clothes back in their closet or drawer and set the table before meals. Just make sure to give them their own time to finish these tasks.
Don’t worry, kaya nila ‘yan, moms! Kailangan lang ng mga bata ng Plus sa Growth, Plus sa Energy and Plus sa Immunity to give them the Laban ng Katawan they need to do these simple tasks.
Let Them Choose
Mommies, letting your child make their own choices can help make them much more independent. Let them choose their outfit for the day, or how to spend their play time. You can even give them two options about what food to have for merienda! These small choices can help build the laban they will need to make bigger decisions later in life.1
Routines can be great for your child and can help them be more independent. Pero dapat yung mga simple lang! For example, a simple morning routine can be brushing teeth, followed by changing clothes, then eating breakfast. This way, your child will always know what activity is coming next and they can prepare on their own!2
These are just some ways you can help your child be more independent. Pero importante din na siya’y may Plus sa Immunity, Plus sa Growth, and Plus sa Energy to give you assurance that your child has Laban ng Katawan as they learn to become independent! This is why Bonakid Pre-School 3+ is designed to give your child Plus Immunity to help give them stronger resistance from sickness while they learn on their own, Plus Energy so they have all the energy they need when they are faced with tough choices, and Plus Growth so they can grow up to be a strong, independent and be a Batang May Laban!
