As early as two, toddlers like to feel like they are an important part of the family. Even though your toddler is too small to take on most chores around the house, there are simple tasks that you can grant to your tot that will help them feel as though they are contributing to the family. For example, you can give your toddler the responsibility of turning off a light switch each day before bed. Teach your toddler how to turn the television on. When the family gathers together to watch television, let your toddler turn on the television. Praise your toddler for completing these tasks to make them feel important. After a meal, teach your child how to throw away a napkin in the trash, then allow your child to collect all the napkins and throw them in the trash. By helping in small ways, your toddler feels largely significant. They will feel that you gave them these jobs because you are confident in them.
