There are some mothers who appear to be lazy but there are always managing to accomplish things. Among the lazy moms is one Anna Bykova who has no qualms in admitting that she is proud f this title. But get this, Anna is a psychologist who has authored several bestsellers and feels that her style allows children to be more independent. Anna’s laziness isn’t about lazing on a sofa the whole day but instead she just doesn’t do everything for her children herself and makes them do it instead. It’s no problem letting a 7 year old wash the dishes knowing that you may have to wipe and mop the floors after that. Here are the tips in relation to the method.

1 Train your child to use the potty

This is a step by step process and requires your patience. Place the potty in the same area everyday and close to the child’s surroundings. Don’t force the child to sit on it. Each time the child uses the potty offer words of praise even if they just sit on it to please you.

2Place a teddy bear near the potty

You can also place one of their cuddly toys and even read them a fairytale and how its characters like dry pants instead of soiled ones. Soon the child will get used to the routine and use the potty themselves.

4Supervise the touching of dangerous objects

When your child touches objects like scissors, one should be careful and ideally, they shouldn’t as it is a dangerous object. But if they are curious, let them touch them only in your presence so that you control how they touch the object. The thing is too many taboos can irritate children and that limits the scope of their development.
