Self-care involves all of the basic activities children do to care for themselves, such as feeding, dressing, bathing, and toileting.
Sleep is also included in this category, because it is important for a child’s well-being and functioning.
As your child develops self-care skills, their level of independence will subsequently increase. When children complete daily tasks independently, they begin to establish confidence, a sense of accomplishment,
and build other key skills.
