8 tips for developing child independence

If you want to raise a self-confident child who is able to make decisions independently, you need to give him freedom for this. The key to raising an independent child is maintaining balance. You need to be patient, but not too condescending to the child. The problem is that some parents try to control every step of the child.

Most likely, this was not the case in your childhood, but this is often the case with modern children.

However, everything changes when your child begins to command. Continue reading
