9 Things You Should Let Toddlers Do or Learn On Their Own

Updated: Sep 22, 2022

In this article, I will be sharing things you should let your toddler do or learn on his own.


It is easier for you as a parent to do something for your toddler than your toddler does it himself.

You can accomplish a task in 30 seconds while your toddler might take 30 mins.

Your toddler might be messy, slow, uncoordinated, and prone to minor injuries.

Letting your toddler tries things on his own is necessary for your toddler to learn to be independent.


It is important that your toddler learns from failure, how to fail and when to be ok with it.


It might be easier for you to choose for your toddler.

Let your toddler choose what to wear, do, eat and where to go.

This lets your toddler learn and grow to be an independent toddler.

Explore His/Her World

Let your toddler out in the nature or city and figure out what he loves.

For example, sands, water and outdoor playgrounds.

Know The Truth

For example,

You don't have to go into details about how a baby is made, but you can say something like: "A baby comes out of his parents' bodies."

It is true and that will probably satisfy your toddler.

When your toddler is ready for more information you can build from a good foundation.

Your toddler is smarter than what you think he is, gives him the opportunity to work with that by being open and honest with him.


Let your toddler start helping with housework around the house.

When your toddler gets used to housework, he will be your extra pair of hands.

I hope all these pointers will help you to let your toddler do or learn on his own.
