5 Parenting Hacks to Help Your Kid Become More Independent

Most parents want their kids to be more independent. This means your little ones wake up, brush their teeth, get dressed for school, and don’t mix up their left and right shoes — and the main thing here is that they do it all by themselves without any help. It’s a parent’s dream come true, right?

These are some smart parenting hacks that will hopefully teach children how to become more independent. We couldn’t wait any longer and invited this adorable young man to our office to check if these tricks really worked. By the way, ice cream, bubbles, and lots of love and attention served as the foundation of our friendship, so no children were harmed during the testing process.

1. The Bubble Solution (click on the picture for bigger pop up image)

Every parent has faced this problem at least once. On the one hand, your kid gets excited about catching the bubbles. On the other hand, he wants to hold the container with the soapy liquid and blow the bubbles himself. Pretty challenging task for one little guy, don’t you think? As a result, the spilled bubble solution makes the floor very slippery and leaves your child upset about the whole thing. Try this simple trick: stick the container to the chair using some tape. This way your kid will get his new cool no-spill bubble tumbler to play with.

2. How to prevent those ice cream stains. (click on the picture for bigger pop up image)
Ice cream won’t ruin your child’s clothes if you use a cupcake case as a popsicle drip-catcher.

3. How not to mix up the keys.
If you trust your child with the keys, try this trick. Paint them in different colors, and your kid will easily memorize which key opens which door

4. How to use the right amount of toilet paper
Colorful "stop" arrows will tell your kid how much paper they need. You can easily get any sticker from book store. 5. How to get them to brush their teeth for two minutes

5. Toothbrushing to 2 minutes
It’s difficult for children, and sometimes even for grown-ups, to know if they’ve spent enough time brushing their teeth. An hourglass, set for 2-3 minutes, is a perfect solution for you and your child. Another smart idea is to find a children’s song that lasts for at least 2 minutes, and turn it on every time your kid brushes their teeth.
