Responsibility means being dependable, making good choices, and taking accountability for your actions. Raising a responsible child provides numerous benefits. As such, make sure to start them early. Our preschool in California would like to share some tips on how you can effectively teach responsibility for your little one through simple activities they will enjoy.
Effective child care means giving your child age-appropriate responsibilities. Responsibility may mean getting ready in the morning on their own, helping with specific household activities, or caring for a pet. Assigning your child with specific responsibilities every day instills routine and responsibility at an early age. It also teaches them to be more independent as they learn specific skills.
An example of this is teaching your child to clean their mess. This includes cleaning their room, making their bed, and putting away books and toys. When they have this as their daily routine, they can take this skill outside the home and into the community. For example, kids who know how to clean up after themselves at home are more likely to take initiative and clean up after themselves at school or in public.
Another tip is by teaching your little tyke on being a “helper”. According to PBS, “children who were asked to be “helpers” were significantly more responsive to requests than those who simply asked to “help.” Acceleration Academy, our children development center in Sunnyvale, California, incorporates this method into our curriculum by giving kids responsibilities every day and labeling them as “helpers”, which instills a sense of independence, duty, and responsibility in their young minds.
