How to Subtly Teach Your Kids to Be More Independent
You can encourage your child to play independently as early as 1 year old. First, start off with a few minutes of playing alone in their room, and slowly increase it in time. At 3-4 years old, when they wake up early in the morning, teach them to play for a while instead of going to wake you up. In time, your kid will enjoy this activity and may keep doing it.
