No matter how young our kids are we are always thinking about their future right? Today I am discussing the topic of how to introduce independence in the home.

Our independence journey started last year when I removed my Daughter from school and home educated her for six months. We have always had some firm rules in our house like the obvious chores of cleaning your plate after dinner, doing the recycling and just general day to day jobs. But I wanted my then 5-year-old to start learning some life skills that would take her into adulthood. Our children spend their days following rules and with others making decisions for them. Allowing independence not only builds confidence but it shows we are sharing our trust. Pretty handy for the teenage years too.
