Learning how to eat by themselves is a purposeful and essential skill. Most often we do not allow young children to feed themselves with the premise that it will get too messy or that they cannot do it themselves. Not only is it an essential skill it also helps the child with tactile and proprioception skills. If the idea of a mess worries you have a mess cloth under the child’s chair and special eating shirt. Make the seat as comfortable as possible and a right size spoon and fork. Involve your child in the food making process and also allow them to eat with you if possible so they can learn from example. Read this book regularly to encourage independence and bravery.
Children go through distinct periods of development as they move from infants to young adults. During each stage multiple changes in the development of the brain are taking place. Ages and stages is a term used to broadly outline key periods in the human development timeline. Stages include physical, intellectual, language, social and emotional. Brave Books offers a number of topics that cover these exciting yet challenging years.
