Try To Accommodate Your Child's Choice
5y+
Behavior

At this age, your child’s horizon is widening and he is in many ways getting opinionated about things and people around him. Let this grow and become a way of his life. It is important to make your child think ''how'' to do than ''what'' to do. Your child’s opinion matters and as long as it isn’t harmful or distressing, give him opportunities to make it happen.

There are chances that he might not be able to fulfil the task, but in general it will boost his confidence on himself. Also, value his opinion. Rope him in for simple decisions in the family. For example, what shall I cook for dinner today? We are planning to eat out, do you prefer a restaurant? Does this suit match this shirt? etc. For you these may be simple facets of life,  but for a five year old, this inclusion in family matters means a lot. So, accomodate him positively in as many family matters as you can.
