The Importance of Routines
When you get home from class next time and need to put coats and shoes in the closet, try singing the song “Coats away, shoes away, gently put our things away” and see how it goes! Try doing that every week and maybe after a few, your child may just walk right to the closet unprompted when you get home! You can adapt the song however necessary to your specific set up at home. All in all, if you try incorporating and practicing reliable routines during everyday life with your child you will feel joy in seeing their independence and abilities grow!
