I realized last night that I have done my (Princess Karen’s) Little Man a GREAT disservice by always helping him get dressed. I told him to unbutton his shirt and he could not figure it out. He can put on pants and underwear and T-shirts, he can do zippers, but he cannot button things. He also cannot tie shoes because I have always gotten him elastic lace shoes. I decided now was the time to look for things to help work on that this summer before school starts again for him.
Here are some of the items I am considering. Do you have any of these items? What do you think about them?
