Does it feel like getting everyone dressed and out the door in the fall, winter, and spring, is a little chaotic?
Toddlers running around, mittens and hats everywhere, saying "sit down and put your shoes on" over and over...
Well, what if I told you that don't have to spend 3/4 of the year like this?
The entrance area of your home can become a place for independence, learning, and calm, yes, even with toddlers.
You just need to set up the space for it.
There’s a couple small changes you can make to encourage independent dressing and undressing, so you’re not responsible for wrestling everyone into and out of their winter gear:
Even if your child is under 18 months and not quite ready for dressing, you are setting them up to be able to dress and undress themselves in the next year. The first step in either process is being able to access what they need independently.
The cube chair also provides a place for them to patiently wait while helping them dress and getting yourself organized before leaving.
If your child is over 18 months, stay tuned for my next post about teaching dressing and undressing of outerwear :)
