2. Give your child the opportunity to help around the house with developmentally appropriate tasks.
3. Praise your child when they make an effort to help so that they’ll feel good about themselves when doing it.
4. Be a good role model by demonstrating what it means to help others.
5. Make the task enjoyable and interesting.
6. Encourage them to view helping from a “team perspective” to foster a sense of connection and empathy.
