Show her that the final step after every work is to hunt for leftover so as to be sure that the work which she has done is neat. While you are establishing inspection as the final step, be sure to let your youngster discover what is wrong and do the correcting.
There is no need to think of certain tasks as suitable for boys and other for girls. To ensure that their youngsters will be able to care to themselves as capably as possible in adulthood, parents are wise to introduce the whole range of household tasks to sons and daughters alike. Little boys enjoy banking and little girls like to help with outdoor tasks. When they grow up they will feel both competent and independent by knowing how to cook and clean as well as how to do handiwork or change a washer in a tap.
Your toddler may need no further incentive for working than an invitation to join you in what looks like an interesting activity. But to sustain her enthusiasm, you should praise and encourage her for her efforts as well as for her achievements. Another way to encourage a desirable behavior of your child is to use positive incentives, such as a privilege or an allowance.
The allowance may be in any form; it can be an outing or may be one of her favorite toy which she was longing for or may be in the form of pocket money. Although there is much debate over this practice, most experts agree that an allowance can be useful tool for teaching youngsters the value of money and how to take decisions regarding its use.
