How to encourage independence in a toddler?
My three-year-old is the only kid in the house, and there are plenty of adults to help her with almost anything. I noticed that sometimes she insists on having someone do something for her (spoon food into her mouth, put on clothes, etc.), even the simplest things! I'd like to see her do more things by herself, but she seems so focused on the idea that an adult can do things better. How can I encourage my little one to explore her capabilities and be more independent?
