We often refuse to do things for our children that they need help with. Sometimes we ask children to do things before they are ready, or we expect them to understand what we mean when, in fact, they don’t understand.

Patience with the child’s pace and offering help is the kindest thing to do.

Take the attitude of: Let’s do this together – I see you need my help.
