Kindergarten Emotional Development

2 of 7

They want independence.

Kindergarteners are consumed with the idea of growing up, even as they passionately rely on parents to guide them. They look forward to impressing others with new skills and more mature behavior, and they want to do things for themselves.

What you should do: Be selective in providing occasional opportunities to allow your child to be independent. Be patient if your child takes a long time to make decisions or makes illogical ones.
