Your Kid Will Now Be Able To Dress & Undress On Her Own

At the age of 5 to 6 years, your kid is able to do almost everything with her own hands. She is still learning but wants to become independent.

What you need to know:

Getting dressed is about more than just putting on or taking off clothes. It helps your child develop many skills: fine motor skills as she learns to fasten buttons and zips, gross motor skills as she stands on one leg to pull on a pair of pants, cognitive skills as she remembers what bits of clothing go on first, builds patience and attention to finish the task, language as she names types of clothes, colors and sizes, awareness of time and space as she learns to dress for certain occasions and weather conditions.

Your Kid Will Now Be Able To Dress & Undress On Her Own

As a parent you should support and help your kid in this aspect. It’s no surprise that dressing your child yourself seems like the easiest and quickest option. But your child needs to learn how to do it. The ability to dress herself builds confidence, independence and a sense of achievement. Once your child has it mastered, it is one less thing for you to do in the morning!
