  • Your little wonder at this stage is eligible to start experimenting with little responsibilities. Start off by giving your child a basic responsibility like putting their toys back in the box. Give them ample time to get it right as the little one will not be able to manage the first few times. Provide minimal help if required but resist the urge to do it for them. 
  • Responsibility is a big word in itself and definitely too big for a child to understand. However, the idea and habit of taking responsibility should be inculcated in the baby from childhood itself so that it may develop further as he grows up. This can be done by teaching and acting along with your child.
  • You could ask him to keep his toys inside a box or at their place and help him do so, such that he feels encouraged to perform the activity. Refer to his belongings as his own, so that he starts understanding that he is responsible for his belongings.
  • Ask him to finish his meals and question him if refuses to finish it. When he loses an object, ask him to search for it and question him why he did not keep it at the right place.
