My 6yr old daughter Olivia is not very independent.
She gets me to do things that she can do for herself. These things are; choosing her clothes, getting dressed, brushing her hair/teeth, bathing herself, making breakfast/snacks/supper, putting on and fastening shoes/jacket, walking to school with friends.
She watches far to much television in my opinion. From moment she wakes up until time for School and from time she gets back in from school until bedtime, she is either watching cartoons/kids tv or playing her xbox.
Everytime that we are out, she holds my hand, which I am not to bothered about but I would like her to walk to school by herself in at least 2yrs time. I also don't mind fastening zip of her jacket but again, want her doing it herself in a years time (she can do it herself but is too lazy to)
Should I be worried about her lack of independence or is that normal for 6yr olds? ↓
