"Self-Care is a Priority"
“Self-care is how you take your power back. “
Self-care skills are the everyday tasks undertaken so children are ready to participate in life activities including dressing, eating, cleaning teeth. They are often doing these activities in their daily lives.
As children grows and matures, there are certain self-care skills like washing hands, getting dressed, using utensils, among others—that they will need to learn to do on their own. These everyday tasks are things their parents often take for granted, but these are things that need to be taught and practiced.
Self-care skills are one of the first ways that children develop the ability to plan and sequence task performance, to organize the necessary materials and to develop the refined physical control required to carry out daily tasks (e.g., opening lunch boxes, drawing or standing to pull up pants). The term ‘self-care’ would suggest that these skills are expected to be done independently and, in many cases, it becomes inappropriate for others to assist for such tasks. Educators give special training to learners about toilet trained prior to starting of the school.
