If you are a parent, you probably remember when your child started becoming independent. First, they wanted to feed themselves their own Cheerios. Next, they tried to pick out their own clothes. And then, they insisted on holding their toothbrush when cleaning their teeth. All these little steps along the way were so meaningful to them because they were becoming “big” and you saw the pride on their face when they were able to do something by themself. This drive that your child displayed early on is the same drive that also fuels grown-ups – to have ownership over things in their life.
